Excellent. Memories of childhood when anything Napoleonic was fresh and new.

See Napoleon's last epic battle amid the mountains of Belguim!

Showing my age but I recognise the pages from the cinema souvenir programme [remember those?Ive still got mine] and the article from Issue 1 of Military Modelling.

1970 was an interesting year.

Great stuff. Napoleon in old films,new films, on the radio, online and trending even now. The world can't get enough of him. Happy days! (Well, perhaps not for dibble and co! They must be fuming! LOL)

I had completely forgotten creating that album on image shack! Let's face it, what was cut probably needed it. Old Sergei was a bit self indulgent, but I wish we could have seen the most famous moments. The gate at Hougomont, The taking of the eagles, The battle for LHS, Placenoit. But we did get the cavalry charge sequence at least. The British Guards, solo, stopping the Old Guard was comically presented as they played at Jack in the Box. That RHA gunner toppling forward appears three times in the film, as the sequence is rerun.

I loved the film when I first saw it (a rerun in 1971) but knew that much had been lost.

These are great and a shame they didn't all make it into the cut. There are some other scenes too that I've seen stills or clips of. From memory at least:

A much longer post-Ligny scene- with lots of dejected Prussians getting to their feet and cheering Blucher.

A longer close up framing conversation between Blucher and (?)Gniesenau about what to do next. Both the above scenes are reduced to tiny glimpses in the cinema version.

A bit with the Scots Greys attacking French infantry who are running- it's intercut between distant shots where the Greys are some distance behind them, and close ups of individuals being cut down. Would make the whole Scots Greys part make some sense. That was later included in a 1970s euro mini-series whose name I've forgotten, but it's obviously part of the same original.

Brings back many happy memories of my misspent youth.

That brings back memories.

I still have the original cinema pamphlet and the LP soundtrack on vynal.

I used to have the poster but that went somewhere a long time ago.

Getting old now!

Happy that bring you good memories my friends…

Really enjoyed the pictures. Thank you for posting. I went when very young, all I remember is the carnage scene after the battle (must have been traumatic).
