This star-studded film stars Lana Turner (Lady Edwina Esketh) as a spoiled wife of British royalty. Under the invitation of the Maharani (Eugene Leontovich), Lana and her husband travel to India, where the bored housewife proceeds to fall for Richard Burton's Dr. Safti. Despite his shunning her initial advances, the two begin an illicit affair. It is an affair that is complicated, or perhaps symbolized, by a series of disasters by Mother Nature, complete with earthquakes and a devastating flood. A cinematic coup, the movie was nominated and won an Academy Award® for Best Visual Effects.
