Nelson; The Story of England's Immortal Naval Hero
Morale-boosting exploits intended to inspire war-weary citizens.
Biopic 1918 126 mins Silent
Timed to bolster public morale at the end of the Great War, Maurice Elvey’s biopic of Nelson frequently steps out of its period setting to give us historical background or contemporary relevance. There are some nice locations but resort to cheap sets and episodic structure don’t quite do justice to the subject.
