Napoleon: Directed by Abel Gance. With Albert Dieudonné, Vladimir Roudenko, Edmond Van Daële, Alexandre Koubitzky. A film about the French general's youth and early military career.
Speaking of Napoleon, there's a very long (I believe four hours) silent film that deals with him that I've been itching to see for many years. I'm actually on the verge of buying a foreign DVD of it and will have to wait it out until I can afford a region-free DVD player. It's supposed to be one of the greatest films ever made, and I think Kubrick wanted to follow it with something worthy enough to stand in its shadow.
EDIT: Nope, wrong - it's five and a half hours long (330 minutes). That's insane. I've always liked the idea of watching long movies, but anything longer than three hours is tough to set aside an afternoon for. Gettysburg (four hours, 240 minutes) I've only made it through once, likewise for Once Upon a Time in America (230 minutes) and 1900 (over five hours - 310 minutes). Oddly, I watch Ben-Hur and Lawrence of Arabia at least once a year, and they don't seem nearly as long as they are.
