Storyline

This is the fact-based story of an aristocratic woman who defies Victorian society to reform hospital sanitation and to define the nursing profession as it is known today. After volunteering to travel to Scutari to care for the wounded soldiers, who are victims of the Crimean war, she finds herself very unwelcome and faces great opposition for her new way of thinking. However through her selfless acts of caring, she quickly becomes known as 'The Lady with the Lamp', the caring nurse whose shadow soldiers kiss. Written by CindyH

One of the Best TVMovies of the 80s
24 January 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This movie created a lot of stir during the filming of the movie, with Jaclyn Smith playing the legendary British nurse and Anthony Richmond (Smith's husband-then) producing the film. But all in all, this is an outstanding production. From costume, cinematography, dialogues, setting and acting by all the cast.

Jaclyn Smith, I reckon, delivers a very moving performance and she's wonderful in a period costume. Her on camera scenes with Timothy Dalton are absolutely exquisite (it's a pity, producers of the miniseries' "Scarlett" probably missed this film and didnt cast the two instead.)
