One other thing to note though -- HE DID plan certain things. For example, on the Napoleon film he wanted to do massive aerial shots of the battles. He wanted to fly over the troops in a helocopter. So he actually did the math and figured out the shots' durations by combining the number of troops there'd be with the amount of terrain they'd cover and how fast the copter would have to travel to pass over everything.

Has anyone seen Waterloo? I remember those aerial shots from the film (that ultimately was the reason why Stanley couldn't direct Napoleon).

The reason he didn't direct Napoleon was because Waterloo failed at the box office and then the studio didn't want to take the risk of making the picture.
