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. From Emmy® Award-winning director Daryl Duke (TV's "The Thorn Birds") and writers Ivan Moffat and Rose Leiman Goldemberg (TV's "The Burning Bed") comes the classic TV movie starring Jaclyn Smith, Claire Bloom, Timothy Dalton and Jeremy Brett, now available for the first time on DVD.
