For those completists out there, I recently came across a film entitled "1812 God" (got my copy from DVD Lady). It's a Russian made short silent film (with some English subtitles) made in 1912 about Napoleon's Invasion of Russia. Ends with a clip of an old woman said to be 115 years old who would have been alive at the time.

Was going to look to see if it was. Watched it, what a treat even if the infantry has Mosen Rifles

They are closer to Napoleonic time than we are to them

not a bad attempt for the time – i can see some influences from paintings by Kossak and Vereschagin in the scenes.
