Following an unsuccessful American stage production of Romeo and Juliet in 1940, Leigh and Olivier were asked by Alexander Korda, then in Hollywood, to take the starring roles in Lady Hamilton. Filmed just weeks after they were married, with Olivier as Horatio Nelson and Leigh as his mistress Emma Hamilton, the film was promoted as featuring 'The Year's Most Exciting Team of Screen Lovers!'
