$10.00


Love Is a Many Splendored Thing TV Soap from 1967-1973

Directed by a veteran Hollywood director Henry King who began his careerstill in 1915, Love is a Many Splendored Thing was one of his last greatfilms. It was based on a bestseller by Han Suyin called simply A ManySplendored Thing the phrase that was borrowed by the author from the poemThe Kingdom of God by Francis Thompson where that many splendored word`love’ was used in quite a different and rather transcendental contextmeaning the love of God. Made in the ‘50s, the film marked along with worksby such directors as Douglas Sirk and Vincente Minnelli a sort of renascenceof melodrama, its florescence and reaching yet again a peak of popularity.

Love really is a many splendored thing, but you wouldn't know it by seeing this movie. Jones plays a woman doctor who's part Chinese and falls in love with an American guy, but she keep stressing over the fact that she's part Chinese as if that should keep them apart somehow, I mean no one can tell she's part Chinese so who cares? This movie got on my nerves.

I first saw this film in the mid 60’s when I was a teenager, and it movedmeso much, in fact the end scene where Han Suyin hears of Mark’s death, andthen rushes to the hill in disbelief, where you then hear Mark’s voicesaying "Give Me Your Hand", and then the image of him disappears, thebutterfly with it’s superstitious meaning, the music, the shatteredemotionsof Love of Han Suyin, just left me sobbing my heart out. I was outwardlycrying bitterly, my mother and sister looked up and were shocked at myreaction. I just left the room to be on my own. Fortunately I do notreactlike that any more BUT I always cry at the end. I love everything aboutthefilm, the music mostly, the costumes of Han Suyin, and location. Thebeautyof Jennifer Jones and the handsome William Holden, they were both at theirbest. I have the VHS and DVD of this wonderful movie. I also have twoversions of the Music & Lyrics by Arthur Newman and Sammy Fain. I alsohavethe book A Many Splendored Thing by Han Suyin. I recommend this film100%
