Set to shoot right after 2001: A Space Odyssey, Stanley Kubrick's Napoleon is considered by many "The Greatest Movie Never Made." The massive tale of the infamous French Dictator was described as "a character study and a sweeping epic, replete with grandiose battle scenes featuring thousands of extras" which was unfortunately shelved due to the Studios hesitation to film during a time when historical epics were not very popular with moviegoing crowds. Taschen's comprehensive tome features correspondence by Kubrick himself, costume studies, location scouting photos, and endless research material, script drafts, and a final draft of the movie recreated in facsimile.
