Napoleon vu par Abel Gance

The countdown has begun and I've been remiss in tooting the horn about this exciting event.

In recent news, the San Francisco Silent Film Festival announced that Turner Classic Movies (TCM) have become a sponsor of this exciting event.  They've also released a beautiful poster for the event (which will soon be available for purchase - yay).

If you've not yet seen the trailer, here it is again!

Makes the mouth water, doesn't it?

Presented as a grand epic silent film should be seen, this is a not to be missed event.  The Oakland Paramount is a splendid venue, a full orchestra conducted by the composer Carl Davis and the film itself painstakingly restored by Kevin Brownlow and Photoplay Productions, it's going to be glorious.

I'm especially looking forward to meeting so many silent film affcionados from across the globe.  Many have only "met" online and it will be fun to gather, toast and share a great experience.

Tickets can be ordered here.  Don't miss out, this is an epic event!

I purchased my ticket and airfare (I'm flying in from Tampa) yesterday for the April 1st show...I'm so excited! I just love your blog and book, by the way.
