War & Peace (1956)

Pretty dreadful in spite of star-laden cast list. Henry Fonda seems utterly unable to muster a drachma of enthusiasm. Some bit players give it a go but the whole effect is underwhelming although the retreat from Moscow has some harrowing bits. Herbert Lom is good in the role of Napoleon.
