    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.

    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.

    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.
