Napoleon - Abel Gance's Classic Film

£12.99

Product description

NAPOLEON
Abel Gance's Classic Film

by Kevin Brownlow

(signed by the author)

Published by Jonathan Cape

Hardback with dust jacket. Black textured paper binding, with gilt lettering on spine. Smooth matte inside pages. Illustrated throughout with black and white photographic images from the film, design sketches and background material.
Dust jacket in good condition apart from slight signs of rubbing on bottom and top edge and the front inside corner cut off, and slight yellowing with age. Binding in very good condition apart from slight turning in at corners. Inside pages in excellent condition. Previous owner's gift dedication on the front flyleaf but does not detract from the excellent general condition.

From the dust jacket:

"On April 7th, 1927, a remarkable film received its first showing at the Paris Opera House. In the audience, which at the end rose to it's feet cheering, was Charles de Gaulle, then a young army officer, who never forgot his experience that night. What he saw was the shorter of two versions of Abel Gance's work of genius, NAPOLEON, lasting over 3 1/2 hours (the full version ran to nearly 7 hours), and accompanied by a 60-piece symphony orchestra and full chorus playing a specially arranged score by Honegger. The closing reels introduced the spectacular triptych technique, which predated Cinerama by 25 years."
