Criterion has announced a September 8th release date for That Hamilton Woman (1941). Real-life spouses Vivien Leigh and Laurence Olivier star in this Alexander Korda directed drama.

The single-disc release will retail for $39.95, but is available at Classicflix.com for only $29.99. Bonus features and synopsis are below.

One of cinema’s most dashing duos, real-life spouses Vivien Leigh and Laurence Olivier enact their greatest on-screen romance in this visually dazzling tragic love story from legendary producer-director Alexander Korda.

Set against the backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars of the late eighteenth century, That Hamilton Woman is a gripping account of the scandalous adulterous affair between the British Royal Navy officer Lord Horatio Nelson and the renowned beauty Lady Emma Hamilton, the wife of a British ambassador. With its grandly designed sea battles and formidable star performances, Korda’s film (Winston Churchill’s favorite movie, which he claimed to have seen over eighty times) brings history to vivid, glamorous life.
