‘Love is a Many Splendored Thing’ at ICES

The International Centre for Ethnic Studies (ICES) has organized a festival of American movie classics at the ICES Auditorium, 2, Kynsey Terrace, Colombo 8.

‘Love is a Many Splendored Thing’ a film by Henry King will be screening on March 16 at 4.30 pm.

Love, as portrayed and dramatized in this fine and sensitive Buddy Adler production based on the Han Suyin bestseller, is indeed a many-splendored thing. It’s an unusual picture shot against authentic Hong Kong backgrounds and offbeat in its treatment, yet as simple and moving love story as come along in many a moon. Wiliam Holden as the American correspondent, and Jennifer Jones as the Eurasian Doctor, make a romantic team of great appeal. The film was nominated for 8 Academy Awards. Won three Oscars.
