Storyline

A sort of sequel to the 1955 movie, "Love Is a Many Splendored Thing" first involved Mia Elliot, a Korean immigrant who fell in love with Paul Bradley and Dr. Jim Abbott. These interracial relationships stirred trouble for those involved. As time went on, the plot moved away from Mia (with Mia leaving town), and focused on long-suffering Laura Donnelly, a nun who eventually gave up her vows for the love of Mark Elliot.

Trivia

Intended as a sequel/spinoff of the 1955 film, it was unusual for its time by having a central character who was Asian-American. "Mia Elliott" was supposed to have been the illegitimate daughter of the leads from the film. However, storylines involving interracial romance, and also one around an illegal abortion, were too uncomfortable for the network, and in 1968 the lead writers walked and Mia's character written off the show. At that point, it was retooled and became a more standard soap opera. See more »
