NAPOLEON AND LOVE – DVD
This archival gem from the BBC vaults will be a drawing room delight to fans of the earliest incarnations of Masterpiece Theatre. Dating from 1974, it’s a nine-part miniseries that delivers exactly what the name promises–a look at the boudoir behavior and upper-crust machinations of romance during the 20 or so years of Napoleon’s dominion over French warfare and politics in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. You’ll find no battlefield action of any kind, only bawdy behavior, randy dialogue, corruption, conniving, sexual intrigue, and the sort of stagy scenes of highbrow dialogue that marked a generation of BBC productions which eventually found appreciative audiences on American public television.
