As a naval commander he was an inspiring hero, honored to this very day as the essence of bravery. In his private life he was a cad, conducting a scandalous openly adulterous affair with Lady Emma Hamilton and humiliating her cuckold husband. In victories at sea and in the boudoir Horatio Nelson was an indomitable conqueror and deserving of his immortal reputation. He was the sworn enemy of Napoleon and the French and considered himself a failure if a single enemy ship escaped destruction. His strategies to achieve this end are still studied and marveled at. Author Ernle Bradford, himself a naval man and author of the bestselling THE GREAT SIEGE, brilliantly recounts the events of Nelson's life and details the naval warfare of the this thrilling period in British history.

DVDrip | XVID | MP3 - 128 kbps | 640 x 480 | 1:37 mn | 1.18 GB | English
Director: Frank Lloyd | Country: USA | Genre: Drama, History, Romance, War

Cast: Corinne Griffith, Victor Varconi, H.B. Warner, Ian Keith, Marie Dressler

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.

By the time Oliver Nelson and his big band had recorded Fantabulous in March of 1964 for Argo, the great composer, saxophonist, conductor, and arranger was a man about town in New York. He had released some truly classic dates of his own as a leader in smaller group forms – Blues and the Abstract Truth and Full Nelson among them – and had done arrangement work for everyone from Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis and Johnny Hodges, Nancy Wilson, Frank Wess, King Curtis, Etta Jones, Jimmy Smith, Jack Teagarden, Betty Carter, Billy Taylor, and Gene Ammons, to name more than a few. For Fantabulous, he took his working big band to Chicago for a gig sponsored by Daddy-O-Daylie, a famous local disc jockey.
