I bought this movie after renting it a few times and finally realizing I SHOULD BUY THIS, I'm not sorry I did. I love Vivien Leigh's liveliness and enthusiasm in the film as The Lady Hamilton (her character's married name). It's fairly low budget with those kinds of problems but otherwise done nicely in spite of it. I don't know how much is based on fact but films have a way of changing history to be more dramatic. I'm not crazy about Olivier as Admiral Nelson, although he has been called one of the great actors, I think he overdoes it a bit in his films. There are other notable actors here, familiar English faces including Gladys Cooper who plays the indignant wife of Nelson, all played with veracity. The story is basically one of an affair interfered with by war and distance. There is a nicely designed bedroom set of Leigh's with volcano in background. Plenty here to enjoy; action, love, honor and dishonor. Nelson tries to do right about his child at the end but unfortunately dies in battle and leaves Lady Hamilton destitute. By the way Barnes and Noble describes this as "PAN AND SCAN" but that is incorrect. That term is used for a widescreen formatted movie that has been altered to fit TV screens of old. This film was originally shot in the 4:3 format (sometimes known as Standard or Full Format, it is the old TV screen ratio) and therefore has not been altered from the original. Black and white with DVD extras, Criterion quality throughout.
