The Nelson Affair (Imprint Collection #134)
Young George Matcham visits his uncle Lord Nelson and the vulgar Lady Hamilton. With the clear eyes of youth, he measures Nelson's stature and notes his feet of clay. And yet, Nelson is a hero, a great man. How can this be resolved? Meanwhile, the combined French and Spanish fleet puts out to sea.
Scripted by acclaimed British author Terence Rattigan and starring Peter Finch, Glenda Jackson & Anthony Quayle.
- " This is the kind of “historical” that transports one in time to encounter timeless truths about people. And therein is the satisfaction. " – Judith Crist (Texas Monthly)
- " Terence Rattigan's script is witty and sophisticated and even literary at times. " – Dick Lochte (Los Angeles Free Press)
- " Finch, who can do this sort of thing with his eyes closed and one hand behind his back (and indeed he plays most of his scenes with a black patch and one empty sleeve) does much with the little Rattigan has afforded him. " – Bernard Drew (Gannett News Service)
