Did You Know?

Trivia:
After Fire Over England (1937) and 21 Days Together (1940), this was the third and final film that paired Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh. It was the only one made during their marriage and the only one which did not also feature Leslie Banks.See more »
Goofs:
Factual errors: 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 »
Quotes:
Mrs. Cadogan-Lyon:[Greeting a lady in waiting for the Queen of Naples] Good morning, your ladyship. My daughter, her ladyship, is still resting. And how is Her Majesty's sore throat? You know the best thing for a sore throat is to wrap a woolen sock around your neck before bed.
Sir William Hamilton:Good morning, your ladyship.
[to Emma's mother]
Sir William Hamilton:Is Emma still asleep?
Mrs. Cadogan-Lyon:She is asleep. In my village, a husband just turns round in bed to look for himself.
Sir William Hamilton:Yes, and the Queen of Naples does not wear woolen socks!

One Guess, 22 June 2006
Author: rensamuels from United States

Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh when they were both young and desperately beautiful are a joy to watch in this film. He plays the great English naval hero, Nelson, and she, Lady Hamilton, the wife of the English ambassador. Another favorite movie moment of mine is after the opera given in his honor when they are in a bar, before they have actually declared their love for one another. They're talking about what they're not missing by having left the ball after the opera. She says, "This is where the real and exclusive party is." Then she tells him about himself: "Nelson in a good mood," and she makes a bored face. "Nelson in a bad mood," and makes the same face. "Nelson in an exuberant mood," with the same face a third time. He says, "Am I really such a dull fellow?" Her reply: "Only when you ask questions like that." His response is the beautiful part. He says something to the effect of, "Now I'll give my performance. What mood is this? One guess." And he leans his chin on his hand and gazes into her eyes. She guesses something like, "Nelson allowing himself to be just a little bit happy?" He shakes his head slowly and says, "Nelson in love." She leans forward and her chin touches his hand, and just then a group of soldiers, including his son, enter the bar. The moment is all the better because you're left wanting more!
