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

Excellent biographical movie about the Lady of the Lamp.
7 March 2001 | by (Oregon) – See all my reviews

Jaclyn Smith gives an excellent portrayal of Florence Nightingale, the proper English lady who left her prim, aristocratic lifestyle to provide care and treatment of injured soldiers in the poorest conditions. Although this is a movie based on the life of The Lady of the Lamp, Ms. Smith brings to life the history of nursing and the birth of sterilization and sanitation. This is a most enlightening movie which is entertaining as well. I highly recommend the movie.
