The Sunday Intertitle: Snow Day
The weatherman actually prophesied snow for this weekend, but it appears to have not happened. I was looking forward to it, but then I realised that Abel Gance’s NAPOLEON was showing in Bo’ness and that mushy precipitation might interfere with my traveling. So it’s worked out OK.
What’s also worked out is that I seem to be blogging my way through French history via period movies. I can probably get a good week out of Napoleon and chums, easily. Maybe we can bring this up to WWI by the time I reach the end of JUDEX, thus forming a kind of temporal loop, or something?
What’s a good movie set in the immediate post-Napoleon era? I dimly recall learning about Napoleon III at school but can’t recall anything about the middle one…
