Sir William Hamilton, a widower of mature years, is British ambassador to the Court of Naples. Emma who comes for a visit with her mother wouldn't cut the grade with London society but she gets along well with the Queen of Naples. Emma likes being Lady Hamilton and life goes smoothly until Lord Nelson pays a visit. Sir William decides at first to let his young wife have her fling and pretends not to know what is going on. But the real life lovers, whose first screen romance was in "Fire Over England" (1937) have an even more burning passion for each other in this film. Written by

During the battle of Trafalgar, a ship with four gun decks is shown burning and sinking. This can only be the Spanish ship Santísima Trinidad, the only ship in the battle with four gun decks, and the largest and most powerful 'battleship' in the world at the time. The real Santísima Trinidad was captured by the British and taken in tow as a war prize, but was lost in a storm at sea on its way to England. See more »

This has been one of my very favorite movies for a long time and I recommend it to whomever will listen to me. Vivien Leigh and Laurence Olivier make a terrific pair and of course have great chemistry together, which really complements this true story. The actors give great performances, and I think the film really tries hard not judge the actions of Lady Hamilton and Lord Nelson which caused a tremendous scandal in their own time. Anyone who likes historical drama and wants to escape into another world for a few hours is bound to enjoy.
