So much has been said about Garbo's wonderful acting in this film but too little mention of Boyer's iconic portrayal of Napoleon is breathtaking! Those who complain about this film should steer clear of period, historical dramas.
The Divine Garbo Triumphs Again
- Victor Grossetti
Her entrance and her hold over everyone in this lush and epic film are testaments to her beauty and superb acting style. She is as fresh and understated in 2019 as she was 82 years ago. The Immortal Garbo was considered by many to be the greatest screen star of all time, and this film is proof of that. Beautiful and tragic, that's Garbo's magic.
Please revise program scheduling
I agree with "Garbo Stinkers" review. Having program themesis very hard on those viewers who don't like the theme. So for example, when an entire evening is silent movies which I don't like, then I am forced to watch something else when I don't want to watch something else. I love this channel and have for many years.I wish the theme scheduling could at the very least, be sprinkled with other other types of movies for each evening.
Another Garbo stinker
This channel seems dead set on losing viewership with harebrained programming. Why dominate one evening after another with films centered around actors or some ridiculous theme that many of us do not like or care about? This film, for example, is watchable if you like Garbo, but I do not. She is the most boring, comical (not intended I'm sure), physically over billed actor of her time. A shellfish has more charm, and I'd rather watch paint dry. ("I vant to be alone. . . "). I wish they'd do something about their lame programming (like endless silent movies--what if you don't like silent movies? one a night is enough) or the this channel will unfortunately go down. The object is entertainment.
The movie "The Conquest"
- Kathy Young
Loved this movie! Loved the history of Napoleon, and his life. With the movie being black and white, you actually feel you're part of the whole story. But then, that's me, I simply LOVE old movies, and I'm making up for it now, since growing up, there was no CC (Closed-Captioned). I think you figured out that I'm deaf, so I rely on it. Thank you SO much for this channel and the CC!! I'm finally now able to enjoy movies, and have for the past few years. Its my favorite channel. Please don't change anything! Thanks!
I have always enjoyed historical pieces even if the acting was wanting. Charles Boyer and Greta Garbo's performannce is extraordinary. The acting is just captivating especially Greta Garbo. So many times screen sirens are beautiful playthings that distracts you from the production . Her craftmanship is impressive and her talent is amazaing. Charles Boyer's performance is great the film is fantastic this is a must see for any fan of this genre.
- James Higgins
61/100. This film was a failure at the box office and notable as being the film that started Greta Garbo's downfall in Hollywood. The production is superb. The costumes, art direction, cinematography and the score are all first rate. Greta Garbo is only fair, Charles Boyer overacts quite a bit as Napoleon, not one of his better performances. I know Hollywood is know for fictionalizing a bit in their movies based on real people, but Conquest takes it a little too far. It's too talky, and that brings about some very slow stretches. Pretty much everyone is miscast, particularly Dame May Whitty and Maria Ouspenskaya. Director Clarence Brown's films usually have a good pace, this is an exception.
Fabulous Story and Acting
- Ursula Kirkpatrick
Here is Charles Boyer early in his career in a fantastic role, which he plays fully and extremely well.Greta Garbo as usual is superb.This is an extraordinary movie, well worth watching over and over. I am hoping this will be available in the very near future, as I would be very happy to buy it.
