That Hamilton Woman (1941) UK, b/w, 120m.
Directed by Alexander Korda.
A Great SPECTACLE concerning the romance between Emma, Lady Hamilton and Lord Nelson with the Napoleonic wars as backdrop, culminating in the battle of Trafalgar.
The film spans over 25 years, from 1790 to 1815.
Both the receptions and the battle scenes were good to watch even if there were much studio shootings and no cgi.
This also worked well as a great morale booster at the British home front during World War 2.
Everyone liked this!
It was nominated for four Academy Awards and won one, for best sound recording. No actors were nominated, but obviously Vivien Leigh and Laurence Olivier were greatly appreciated, especially as there was…
