Napoléon Restored (in Film)

Abel Gance’s epic silent film Napoléon (1927) utilized a number of innovative filmmaking techniques and it has since become a classic work in the linked genres of historical film and war film.

A new restored version of the film is being screened this month in San Francisco as part of the San Francisco Silent Film Festival.

The New York Times reports on the restored film.
