That Hamilton Woman

AKA 'Lady Hamilton'. An excellent film about Nelson's lifelong relationship with Emma Hamilton that is somewhat glamorised and stiff but generally extremely effective. Vivien Leigh is the woman in question, and real-life hubby, Laurence Olivier, steps into Nelson's shoes. Nominated for several Oscars, including Best Cinematography, it won for Sound Recording, and was reputedly Winston Churchill's favourite movie.
