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 TV Drama in the 80s....
23 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

Jaclyn Smith may not be the Cate Blanchet of her generation but definitely talented as compared to most of her contemporary.

This is also one of the best TV movie drama in the 80's. Sad to say, Hollywood don't make this kind of movies anymore.

Excellent performances from the entire cast. Jaclyn Smith is acting here with sincerity. You can't avoid watching her face ( beautiful in every angle) gracefully on the screen, but she's shown emotions over and above expectation.

Smith is not the "ïndie film star" of sort --a.k.a critics ravers. But if you want to sit down and enjoy a two to three hour TV production in the comfy of your own home then this one excellent production is for you.

Highly recommended....
