Francis Coppola Brings An Epic Napoleon Back from Exile
Following the Manhattan screening, Gance, 91, was awakened at 6 a.m. in his Paris apartment to hear by phone a six-minute ovation. The crowd attending the post-premiere party at Sardi's was equally reverential. Gushed Leonard Bernstein, after making an entrance worthy of Loretta Young: "The film was staggering! Heroic!"
The occasion was a family affair, with Francis alternately scoffing rolls from empty tables and toasting his musician dad. Burbled his actress sister, Talia Shire: "I was knocked out. It was wonderful." The tribute to Gance, which cost Francis Coppola $330,000 to mount, opens next in Washington, Atlanta and Los Angeles. Boasted Carmine: "We're going all the way to the Oscars with this one."
