Availability on Tape or DVD?????
1 February 2005 | by OldriceSee all my reviews

This is an accurate, yet very entertaining portrayal of the love story between Napoleon and Josephine. It's an awful shame this movie (miniseries) isn't available on DVD. If anyone can tell me where I can find this (I haven't been able to) on DVD I'd appreciate it. Anything with Sean Ofalahee in it, and I would be grateful. Can somebody tell me, if there's a better way to search for a copy of this movie on tape or DVD or where I can search for it in text form with pictures or ???

Please tell me this comment section isn't going to require me to add any more text to it.

All I want to do is find out where I can get a copy of this movie.
