Napoléon restoration trailer: a glimpse of a remastered masterpiece

Abel Gance’s Napoléon (1927) is coming to a cinema near you. I previewed the restoration earlier this month, and there will be more from Silent London on this in the coming weeks, but for now feast your eyes on the brand new trailer, and check out this list of the cinemas that have booked this mega-movie in so far.

  1. Hi, again, Pamela,

    Every time you post something, there’s another recollection for me. This time it’s about Napoleon.

    I had the great privilege of interviewing Carl Davis (again to be included in Great Britons, Volume 2). And I now count Kevin Brownlow a friend, as I’ve interviewed him many times (again for Volume 2) and especially I was honored to have him write the Afterword for Great Britons.

    Really enjoy your posts.

    Regards, Barbara

  2. What’s changed between this new restoration and the one which played at the RFH three years ago? Is this really that different? It’s unclear from the various bits of publicity. But it is wonderful to see it finally coming to DVD and BD.

    1. No new material, just a cleaned-up digital version of that restoration with a new recording of the orchestral score, so it can go to cinemas as a DCP and on to disc
