*1/2. If it weren't for the earthquake and the flood scenes, this movie would sink into total oblivion. This is 20th Century Fox at its worst. During the flirt scenes between Lana Turner and Richard Burton, I felt ashamed for them and wondered how they could remain serious while uttering their lines. With a few shots of bourbon maybe. Almost instant crap.
