Time Out says

A kind of Lost Horizon for the Lost Generation as a soldier returning from the First World War shrugs off his wealthy background to search for spiritual fulfilment. Starting among the smart set in Europe (Paris and the Riviera created in the studio), it then moves rather less persuasively to India. Classic Hollywood kitsch, with the shallow sophistication of Somerset Maugham's novel well matched by the glossiest glitter that Fox could buy. But somehow Goulding (an erratic but underrated director) manages to dominate it all with an almost Premingerian mise en scène, aided by some superb performances (Tierney in particular).

What a perfectly cast film. Yes, Tierney certainly does her best work here but Anne Baxter is superb, Clifton Webb simply born to play Elliot Templeton and Tyrone Power very persuasive as the film's 'anchorman hero. 20th Century Fox gave it a lavish and beautiful production (except for those cardboard Indian hills in background shot) and Goulding the director gets all there is out of a very interesting novel. One of my favourite films.

Superb film of a mans search for Truth. Great perfomances by a cast of pros. The performance that stands out in particular is that of Gene Tierney.
