Napoleon, Part 1

Web exclusive!

You gotta hand it to those Coppolas — they’re a hardworking bunch. This time it’s Carmine (Francis Ford Coppola’s dad) who’s in on the action. His music has been added to the recently restored silent film Napoleon, Part 1. Abel Gance’s 1927 classic, considered one of the most thrilling silent films ever made, shows the French dictator’s grab for power. No doubt Coppola’s music will add to the drama. Napoleon, Part II screens March 27. 7 p.m. Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, 1001 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-639-7515 or visit $6 to $7.
