The True Story Of the Mother of Modern Nursing. Jaclyn Smith stars as Florence Nightingale in this stirring drama. Florence was an aristocratic woman who defied Victorian society to reform hospital sanitation and to define the nursing profession as it is known today. After volunteering to travel to Scutari to care for the wounded soldiers of the Crimean War, she was scorned by her community and faced great opposition for her new way of thinking. However, through her selfless acts of caring, she quickly became known as "The Lady With The Lamp," the caring nurse whose shadow softened those wounded. Florence Nightingale features an outstanding support cast including Claire Bloom, Timothy Dalton, Timothy West, Peter McEnery and Jeremy Brett.
