The picture, though very interesting, is not important
This is one of the Ambrosio Company's Napoleon pictures. It is a story of a conscript. We see him depart and when he writes home, as line by line the letter is flashed on the screen, a picture follows, illustrating it. He writes, for instance, that he saved the Emperor when a powder barrel blew up, and we see the explosion and see him jump before Napoleon. He returns to his home badly wounded and finds his widow mother unable to pay the taxes and in danger of losing the cottage. The Emperor chances to pass through the village and helps the soldier. The army scenes are like others that have appeared in other pictures of this series. The picture, though very interesting, is not important. - The Moving Picture World, July 22, 1911
