The Trafalgar Day screening of the film, which tells Nelson’s story through the memoir of Emma Hamilton, will be introduced by Nelson expert and Greenwich Historical Society president, Anthony Cross.
The Alexander Korda-directed movie was released in 1941 and was reported to be Winston Churchill’s favourite film. It will be shown in the King William Lecture theatre (302) at 6.30pm on October 21st – tickets cost £5 and include a complimentary glass of wine afterwards.
Earlier in the day, there will also be free talks about Nelson.
