Love is a many-splendored thing by Henry King( Visual )

23 editions published between 1955 and 2014 in English and Italian and held by 775 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on the autobiographical novel by Han Suyin, Love is a Many Splendored Thing was evocatively location-filmed in Hong Kong. Jennifer Jones plays Ms. Suyin, a Eurasian doctor and the widow of a Chinese general. An immensely popular tearjerker, Love is a Many-Splendored Thing still holds great appeal for aficionados of good soap operas. As an over-the-top romantic melodrama, it's hard to beat, but those who are not prone to tearing up at the sight of a forlorn Jennifer Jones standing bravely and lonely atop a high, windy hill would be well advised to look elsewhere -- and quickly. Love makes no attempt to disguise its soapiness, and it wears its manipulative nature right out on its sleeve. Fortunately, Love has a couple of classic weeper performances from Jones and William Holden, both of whom knew just how to play this kind of material for maximum effectiveness. Even more fortunately, Love has all the gorgeous surface trappings -- beautiful sets and scenery, gorgeous costumes, sumptuous photography, a sweepingly romantic score -- that provide the real joy in films of this type. The romance ends in tragedy, but with renewed hope for a happier future. The one lasting legacy of Love is a Many Splendored Thing is its Oscar-winning title song, written by Paul Fain and Sammy Webster; Oscars also went to Alfred Newman's musical score and Charles LeMaire's costume design
