Abel Gance's "Napoleon"

The forthcoming restoration of Abel Gance's 1927 silent epic, Napoleon, is obviously big news for cinephiles. The film hasn't been seen in complete form for decades, and has never been made available on DVD.

The new restoration by Kevin Brownlow will premiere at the Oakland Paramount Theater on March 24, 2012, accompanied by a live orchestra.
