[After] two years of intensive research with the help of dozens of assistants and an Oxford Napoleon specialist, he amassed . . . approximately 15,000 location scouting photographs and 17,000 slides of Napoleonic imagery. No stone was left unturned in Kubricks nearly-obsessive quest to uncover every piece of information history had to offer about Napoleon. But alas, Kubricks movie was not destined to be: the film studios, first M.G.M. and then United Artists, decided such an undertaking was too risky at a time when historical epics were out of fashion. TASCHENs tribute to this unmade masterpiece makes Kubricks valiant work on 'Napoleon' available to fans for the first time. Based on the original 2009 limited edition which featured ten books hidden inside of a carved out reproduction of a Napoleon history book, this publication brings all the original elements together in one volume. Herein, all of the books from the original edition are reproduced in facsimile . . . The text book features the complete original treatment, essays examining the screenplay in historical and dramatic contexts, an essay by Jean Tulard on Napoleon in cinema, and a transcript of interviews Kubrick conducted with Oxford professor Felix Markham. The culmination of years of research and preparation, this unique publication offers readers a chance to experience the creative process of one of cinemas greatest talents as well as a fascinating exploration of the enigmatic figure that was Napoleon Bonaparte.''(publisher's text / Verlagstext). isbn 3836523353.
