 Dear Steve, Which musical additions are you referring to re. NAPOLEON? The
Colin Davis musical accompaniement to the film limited to Britain thanks to
Francis Coppola is far superior to that dreadful, crnaky score written by
his father Carmine. Rather than contributing to the visuals or illustrating
the various visual nuances it is highly distracting. The only way one can
watch Gance's film without irritation is truning down the soundtrack so
Carmine Coppola's awful music does not grind viewer sensibilities down. It
is a shame that the U.S. Video version only contains Coppola's score not
Colin Davis's which is far better.
