2 p.m.Movie: Napoleon
An epic French film of the 1950s staring Yves Montand and an aged Erich Von Stroheim. Intended to be an homage to the life and career of the French Emperor, the film gets a bit carried away at times. Told from the perspective of a contemporary, the narration often suffers from exaggeration. Those who are true Bonapartist will no doubt love it! There are some impressive sets and scenes as well as another cameo by Orson Wells toward the end. A fun film—even if it is overt propaganda!
