  Much of “Leaving Before the Rains Come” concerns itself with the familial histories of both Fuller and her husband (whose background, amazingly, almost equals Fuller’s in its extraordinariness). The Rains Came was based on a presumably more serious book; all-purpose movie 'foreigner' Abner Biberman (from Milwaukee) plays George Brent's (naturally) sneaky Indian houseboy with the serious name John the Baptist. Surely the book had an explanation for that.

  The Movie Event. Before when The Rains Came was published, there had already been movies made from four of Bromfield’s novels—one of which was a giant hit and media sensation.

The Rains Came () At first I thought this was a post-war movie, which would make it a post-Independence movie for India from the British. And since the story starts in , the events would seem to lead to that huge turnover, told Hollywood style. That was fine with me. The Rains Came is set during the monsoon in a princely territory called "Ranchipur," which sounds a little like "Ranch-uh-poor" the way the actors pronounce it. If we take the name a little too literally -- Ranch 'o the Poor -- The Rains Came is an eastern western, except full of poor, skinny Eastern Indians instead of fierce, feather-hatted.
