Audience Reviews for Lady Caroline Lamb

Well made romance drama, forbidden love is fact based on a true story between poet Lord Byron and authoress Lady Lamb. The film's failure dissuaded director Bolt from further directorial work, and may have contributed to his breakup with actress Sarah Miles (who starred as Lady Lamb). [img]https://encrypted-tbn1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRxsWpSrpJBnkWV-jBia1j65KaS_BdcyMAJVBdPfyRf5WrNAjaX[/img] Sara Miles Lady Caroline Lamb was a British aristocrat and novelist, best known for her affair with Lord Byron in 1812. Her husband was William Lamb, 2nd Viscount Melbourne, who later became Prime Minister. "The film charts the doomed romantic course for Lady Caroline Lamb (Sarah Miles), beginning with her marriage to the politically promising William Lamb (Jon Finch) and continuing with her scandalous affair with Byron (Richard Chamberlain). The film then chronicles Lady Caroline Lamb's supreme sacrifice on behalf of her husband's political career." ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi Great performance by Richard Chamberlain as Lord Byron and Sarah Miles as Lady Lamb. Chamberlain is perhaps best known for his Dr. Kildare television series and the mini-series The Thorn Birds.
