Description by OLDIES.com:

Lord Admiral Horatio Nelson, England's greatest maritime hero, led a life of astonishing adventure. He found danger in soul-stirring naval battles, fame in his triumphs over Napoleon's fleet, and passion in the arms of the bewitching - and, like Nelson himself, married - Lady Emma Hamilton.

Frank Lloyd (Mutiny on the Bounty) won a 1928-29 Best Director OscarĀ® for this thrilling pre-Talkie (with musical and sound effects) of ship-to-ship and man-to-man combat interwoven with poignant scenes of the lovers finding happiness amid the tumult of war."

Product Description:

Frank Lloyd both produced and directed THE DIVINE LADY, a Hollywood slant on the 19th century romance of Lord Horatio Nelson and Lady Emma Hamilton. American film star Corinne Griffith, decked out in a blonde wig, is decorative but otherwise unconvincing as Lady Emma, while Hungarian-born Victor Varconi brings an inappropriate continental air to the veddy British Lord Nelson. Both stars found themselves playing second fiddle to Marie Dressler, mugging to her heart's content as Lady Emma's ambitious mother. The scandal surrounding the leading characters' illicit affair is secondary to the film's exciting reconstructions of Nelson's celebrated sea battles. Technically a silent, DIVINE LADY was released with a Vitaphone musical score and sound effects. Lost in the shuffle during the switch over to talkies in 1929, DIVINE LADY is forgotten today, totally eclipsed by the immensely successful 1941 film LADY HAMILTON, starring Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh.
