Movie buffs in Bristol, England, expecting to see the Laurence Olivier-Vivien Leigh classic "Lady Hamilton," about British military hero Adm. Horatio Nelson, instead got a soft-porn flick about Nelson's love affair with an aristocrat. A spokesman for the Watershed Media Center said a mislabeled film container caused the recent mix-up at a screening. The center planned to show the 1941 film that told the story of Nelson and his love affair. However, what unspooled was "Emma Hamilton," a pornographic treatment of the same subject.
