Jaclyn Smith is a curious choice to play the title character in the made-for-TV biopic Florence Nightingale . This fact, however, never enters into the consciousness of the viewer, thanks to Smith 's excellent performance. Some liberties are taken with the details of the life of "The Lady with the Lamp," notably the addition of a largely speculative romance between Florence and her young swain ( Timothy Dalton ). The best scenes--and the most accurate--occur during the Crimean War sequences and during Nightingale 's strenuous efforts to form the Red Cross. Co-produced by Tony Richmond , Jaclyn Smith 's husband, Florence Nightingale debuted April 7, 1985. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
