I was fortunate enough to see Kevin Brownlow's magnificent 5 1/2 hours restored version of Abel Gance's epic silent film NAPOLEON (1927) at the Paramount Theater with composer Carl Davis' fabulous score in Oakland, California after my presentations at San Jose State University. The San Francisco Silent Fim Society really knows how to put together a great event. Bravo! to everyone involved in this historical undertaking.
