Critic Reviews for The Divine Lady

All Critics (2)

Outdated historical melodrama.

April 18, 2018 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Frank Lloyd won the Directing Oscar for this largely silent version of the romance between Lady Hamilton and Lord Nelson; the 1941 vesrion with Olivier and Vivien Leigh is superior.

Audience Reviews for The Divine Lady


Yeah..this one is lost and seldom seen...for good reason. Not too many people would have been working on preserving this one.
