Love Among the Ruins is a 1975 British television film (1975) directed by George Cukor and starring Katharine Hepburn and Sir Laurence Olivier. It first aired on ABC-TV, in the U.S.

Set in Edwardian England, Love Among the Ruins tells the story of Jessica Medlicott (Hepburn), an aging grande dame, formerly an actress of the London theatre. When Medlicott is accused by a young man of seducing and then abandoning him, she retains the services of the greatest barrister in Britain (Olivier), who turns out to be a former suitor still in love with her.

The show took home several Emmy Awards, including Hepburn and Olivier for Outstanding Performance, and Cukor for Outstanding Directing.
