Can anyone tell me if the Kevin Brownlow restoration of Abel Gance's
Napoleon (with the Carl Davis score) is ever going to be available in
the US on DVD? There seems to be the opinion out there that Francis
Coppola is somehow preventing the Brownlow version, since Coppola
released an abbreviated version with his father's score. I know if the
answer can be found, it will be on this list...

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of
issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic
control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in
libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve
as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel
of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video
producers and distributors.
