“Lana Turner as the titled trollop…has the role of temptress down pat. Burton’s portrayal of the dedicated Indian doctor who falls in love with Turner has strength and conviction and is underplayed intelligently.” —Variety

“Boasts color CinemaScope…an all-star cast…Oscar-nominated special effects…Turner offers a sultry, overtly sexual interpretation…Burton is surprisingly good in a role that could easily backfire on an Anglo actor…the special effects are the main attraction and the melodrama’s raison d’être.” —TV Guide

The Rains of Ranchipur (1955)—based on a Louis Bromfield novel and an earlier Twentieth Century Fox hit, The Rains Came (1939)—is a juicy, full-bore melodrama, directed by Fox’s own master of the genre, the great Jean Negulesco. Starring Lana Turner as a heartless vixen who first lures, then falls in love with an honorable Indian physician (Richard Burton), the film plays out against the magnificent sweep of the Indian subcontinent, torn by the harsher powers of nature and lushly photographed by Milton Krasner. Also starring Fred MacMurray as a potentially heroic drunk, Michael Rennie as Turner’s cruelly cuckolded husband, Eugenie Leontovich as a worldly-wise Maharani, and Joan Caulfield as a loyal innocent, the film is further highlighted by a romantic score from the incomparable Hugo Friedhofer (available here as an isolated track) and thrilling special effects that were nominated for an Academy Award.

Enjoy the extensive Julie Kirgo liner notes and film art packaged with the Blu-ray disc.
