In conjunction with the new exhibit at R.W. Norton Art Gallery, “Little Corporal on the Big Screen: The Film Posters of Napoleon Bonaparte,” RFC is partnering with the James Smith Noel Collection to bring some of those Napoleon films to the screen! Each screening will feature an introduction by Alexander Mikaberidze, curator of the Noel Collection.
In this 2001 film, loyalists hire a look-alike to swap places with the deposed Emperor. While the impostor lives in luxury on the island, the real Napoleon returns to Paris in order to retake the throne. Presented by the James Smith Noel Collection at Louisiana State University Shreveport
