Description by OLDIES.com:

The seventh and final collaboration between Greta Garbo and her favorite director Clarence Brown, Conquest vividly recreates one of the most celebrated romances in history: the ill-fated love affair between Polish countess Marie Walewska (Garbo) and the Emperor of France, Napoleon Bonaparte (Charles Boyer in the first of his three career Oscar-nominated performances). Featuring lavish sets, stunning costumes and a dazzling array of historical reenactments, Conquest took five months to film at a then-staggering cost of $3 million. The chemistry between Garbo and Boyer is electric, resulting in a poignant love story that's lost none of its power to conquer the attention of movie lovers across the generations.

Product Description:

This lavish epic centers on the romance between Napoleon Bonaparte and the Polish Countess Marie Walewska. An expensive flop despite good performances. Academy Award Nominations: Best Actor--Charles Boyer, Best Interior Decoration.

Plot Synopsis:

A lavish period drama about Napoleon's romance with the Polish countess Marie Walewska. When the French general takes a fancy to Marie, her husband and countrymen urge her to take him as her lover. Their reason is practical: Poland needs Napoleon's support in keeping Russia at bay. The patriotic countess complies, entering into a passionate and enduring affair that ends up transcending political ambition and surviving the vagaries of history.
