A free-spirited young Polynesian girl is sent to live with her uncle in England. The many social and other rules new to her that she encounters there, as well as attention from student body of a local school cause much hilarity.
Robert Lomax, tired of working in an office, wants to be an artist. So he moves to Hong Kong to try his hand at painting. Finding a cheap hotel, he checks in, only to find it's used by prostitutes and their "dates" they meet in the bar downstairs. Since he never picks up any of the ladies, they all want to know more about him. Eventually, he does hire one to model for him... and soon falls in love. However, since he's on a limited budget, he can't afford her exclusively, but doesn't want to "share" her with anyone else.Written by

AT LONG LAST I saw The World of Suzie Wong at my school library today. You just have to see it to believe it. It is a shame that it takes an outsider (Hollywood) to capture the exotic beauty of the old-time Hong Kong. (With Love Is a Many-splendored Thing as the forerunner) I have never seen Hong Kong photographed in a flattering yet realistic light. Nancy Kwan ignites the screen with such charm and grace which Asian actresses seriously lack today. All through the film I smile whenever I see her. I love her chemistry with William Holden..yet another favorite of mine...Hong Kong is blessed to be immortalized by this exquisite romance.
