And speaking of Reflections in a Golden Eye, what exactly is to be made of TCM's airings of that film? When I watched it several years ago, it was in that heavily golden drenched version that matched how John Huston wanted it seen, but several months ago, I turned on the TV (I have it set to turn to TCM as soon as its turned on), and it was the basic color version.

In either hue, it's a ham-handed potboiler. :D

The end of Waterloo had some footage of scavengers robbing the dead. It was difficult to watch. I still feel it was the best of the Napoleon films. Phoenix holds high the mumble mouth torch passed on by Brando, figuratively speaking.
