Shortly after he is forced to abdicate the emperorship and retire to Elba, Napoleon (Rod Steiger) roars back to the front in defiance of King Louis XVIII (Orson Welles). Wellington (Christopher Plummer) readies an international coalition to battle the dictator at Waterloo. Despite its notoriety as a box office flop, Sergei Bondarchuk's lavish epic is a true feat of grand-scale filmmaking, complete with a climactic battle featuring 20,000 extras.
