Certificate PG

Surely the most British film ever made in America, this historical drama recreates the romance between Lord Horatio Nelson and Lady Hamilton, portrayed by real-life lovers Olivier and Leigh. The film became a key element in the propaganda campaign to persuade America to join the fight against fascism – an aim so important that Korda returned to directing after a five-year break.

Preserved by UCLA Film & Television Archive with funding from the AFI/NFA Preservation Grants Programme.
