Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing is a 1955 American drama-romance film. Set in 1949-50 Hong Kong, it tells the story of a married, but separated, American reporter (played by William Holden), who falls in love with a Eurasian doctor originally from Mainland China (played by Jennifer Jones), only to encounter prejudice from her family and from Hong Kong society.

The movie was adapted by John Patrick from the 1952 novel A Many-Splendoured Thing by Han Suyin. The film was directed by Henry King.

The movie later inspired a television soap opera in 1967, though without the hyphen in the show's title.
