Having experienced both of Napoleon's scores with a live orchestra, once in Radio City Music Hall, and a few years ago in Oakland, each occasion under the baton of the original composer, I feel that Davis is the better choice. But as David says, it's all a matter of personal taste.

Fantastic experience(s)!

I'd sure love to have THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND, but I'm not, nor will I ever be, interested in streaming it.  Sorry, old fashioned "I want to own it" guy here.

Are any of those movies presented with the original score?   I love the later silents that have the original music and sound effects.

Bruce - there should be 5 that have original soundtracks as released:

 

MYSTERIOUS ISLAND (mostly silent with score)

OUR MODERN MAIDENS

SPITE MARRIAGE

WHERE EAST IS EAST

WILD ORCHIDS

 

All of these have been on TCM and/or previously released on DVD with the original soundtrack.
