One of Hollywoodï¿½s great epic romances Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing (1955)ï¿½based on the bestselling autobiographical novel by Han Suyinï¿½stars 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 Shamroyï¿½with extraordinary location footage shot by Charles Clarkeï¿½and 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
THE MOVIE IS TIMELESS AND WELL ACTED. WILLIAM HOLDEN AND JENNIFER JONES ARE A TREAT TO WATCH. THIS MOVIE IS REMINISCENT OF MOVIES OF HOLLYWOOD AT ITS BEST.Published 5 days ago by Diane Barnett
William Holden plays a good role...but Jennifer jones isn't as convincing. Story ends with him being killed so that's a downer. For the 50s, I guess this was a good love story.Published 1 month ago by Carolyn Ziede
