Storyline

Noticed by George Romney, an artist, Emma, a young shepherdess, leaves her sheep behind to settle down in London with Romney, who employs her as a model. In return, the painter transforms the young peasant into an elegant young socialite, soon surrounded by a crowd of admirers. Her rise in society is meteoric. Her hand is asked for in marriage by old Lord Hamilton, the English ambassador in Naples. Emma accepts the offer and follows her husband to Sicily and becomes the confidante of Queen Marie-Caroline of Naples. She will also live a great love with Admiral Horatio Nelson. Unfortunately, Lord Nelson is killed at the Battle of Trafalgar while Emma is pregnant with her child. Written by Guy Bellinger

Dated before it hit the cinema screen
10 January 1999 | by (Canterbury, England) – See all my reviews

A strange film in some respects. It's the kind of film that managed to appear dated before it hit the cinema screen.

For most of its running time it's a straight old-fashioned costume period drama in the style of the 1950s or early 1960s. Because it was made in 1969 the makers of the film felt the need to sex it up a little. So we get to see the odd semi-nude scene, and even a touch of lesbianism is thrown in. These additions are blatantly gratuitous and exploitative in the way they are presented, and thus they cross the line of the genre; but they are also so mild and half-hearted (by 1970s standards) that this effort could not be described as an exploitation film.
