Storyline

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.

Goofs

The ship Nelson commands when he arrives in Naples, HMS Agamemnon, is depicted as a three decked ship of the line (a 'battleship' as Emma calls it). HMS Agamemnon was actually a third rate ship of the line, and only had two gun decks. See more »

Why no video for the U.S. market?
8 November 2003 | by (Portland, Oregon) – See all my reviews

I have not seen this amazing film for many years, and then viewed it on a TV broadcast. It was sumptuously produced with first-class talents in front of and behind the (unfortunately not Technicolor) cameras, with production values that were absolutely prodigal in their opulence.

For today's audiences, Vivien Leigh is, of course, this film's main attraction, with her delicate beauty and expressive acting showcased as well as could be imagined. I note that no video version of this is currently offered for the American enthusiast and the Canadian VHS, possibly compatible with U.S. VCRs, is "Out of Stock" at present. (The U.K. VHS tape must be viewed via the PAL format, which most American video equipment cannot accommodate.) With so many films as good as this one in a kind of limbo, lovers of truly "classic" films can only hope that the keepers of this treasure will eventually favor us with the opportunity to enjoy it once again.
