Nelson (1918)

Sat 29th September 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

- £5 – £10

Rarely seen since its original release, Maurice Elvey’s masterpiece on the life and career of Admiral Nelson was a major passion project for Britain’s most prolific film director. Written by Alfred Hitchcock’s scriptwriter Eliot Stannard and made with the support of the Admiralty at a time when the Navy needed to recruit. The film transforms Nelson into an action packed hero for the British audiences of World World One, celebrating his heroic status and recreating famous moments in British Naval history.

Elvey’s action packed film is very much an education as well as entertainment with stunning cinematography and razor sharp action sequences mixed with model shots and animation. Part of the film was shot on HMS Victory, making NELSON the only feature film ever made on the Royal Navy’s most famous ship.

South West Silents and No6 Cinema, Portsmouth are proud to present this rare screening of Elvey’s forgotten masterpiece celebrating the life of one of the British Navy’ greatest heroes. Film courtesy of the BFI.

Live Music by Stephen Horne and Martin Pyne.
