Need (Netflix) movie recommendation for French Revolution and Napoleon

Recommended Posts

Mrs Mungo, what version of Tale of Two Cities do you recommend?


I like the 1935 version with Basil Rathbone. Maybe it's not the most complete but it's a decent re-telling. I know there is a BBC mini-series version but I haven't seen it, maybe someone else has? You could also show the "parrot version" from Monty Python, it's only one scene but it's fun if you have the shows on dvd (like I do, lol)-it's in the Attila the Hun show.

I watched several episodes of Horatio Hornblower on youtube last night.


My interest may have had more to do with Ioan Gruffudd than Napoleonic Wars, I'm not sure. Will have to do more research.
