“Fine and sensitive…indeed a many-splendored thing...as simple and moving a love story as has come along in many a moon. This is something of an emotional tear-jerker, to be sure, but an awfully well-made one.” —Variety

“Anyone who has ever been in love can relate to this film…It’s the emotions that are important, and they are conveyed with a sensitivity and conviction that remind one of the real thing and make one believe that the two principal characters truly were in love.” —DVD Verdict

One of Hollywood’s great epic romances, Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing (1955)—based on the bestselling autobiographical novel by Han Suyin—stars Jennifer Jones as a reserved Eurasian doctor working in the exotic, conflict-ridden Hong Kong of the post-World War II era. There, she meets a dashing (if married) war correspondent, resplendently played by William Holden; the two embark on a whirlwind romance buffeted by problems of race, politics, and war. Directed by the sturdy Henry King, the film features superb cinematography by Leon Shamroy—with extraordinary location footage shot by Charles Clarke—and an unforgettable score by the great Alfred Newman, built on one of the most popular title songs of the 1950s, written by Sammy Fain and Paul Francis Webster.

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