John Wamboldt writes: A MEMORY TO SHARE: After seeing Abel Gance's 1927 epic silent film "Napoléon" at Wormwoods (twice), I just knew that I MUST have a copy for my very own. Lee Ann Gillan of Critics Choice made great effort, and obtained a VHS copy for me. She originally quoted $150 U.S., and I was willing to pay it too. It was not easy for her to get, and took quite awhile for her to get me a copy, but when she did, I was pleasantly surprised that the cost was much less -- $50 I think. Thank you once again Lee Ann. I still watch it and it is still in great condition.3
