Chaplin and Napoleon

For years, Charlie Chaplin had thoughts of creating a film about Napoleon. Edna Purviance was the first person he was going to have play Josephine, but as the years passed, his other leading ladies were told they would have the role.

Chaplin never made Napoleon, but his thoughts of making it are still in paper form as saved now at the Chaplin Archives in Italy. Here is a look at Chaplin Napoleon documents, as presented by narrator Dan Stewart.
