Paul Robeson : citizen of the world( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Proud Valley an African American sailor comes to a Welsh coal mining town in 1938 and helps re-open the mine at the cost of his life. Native Land, a political semi-documentary formed from staged reenactments, leads viewers on an emotional tour of the pre-World War II U.S. and its freedom-based ideologies and looks at the the forces it sees as threatening to undermine America's strengths from within: greedy capitalists, professional strikebreakers, and the Ku Klux Klan. Robeson on Pacifica Radio: Paul Robeson was denied his U.S. passport from 1950 to 1958 after he refused to sign an affidavit stating that he was not a Communist. During this time, Pacifica Radio interviewed Robeson, allowing him to express his personal history and view of the world. This interview was conducted by host Elsa Knight Thompson and Harold Winkler, president of the Pacifica Foundation

Convoy( Visual )

2 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Convoy is the first of many distinguished films about the war made at Ealing Studios. It attempted to show how war is conducted, but also that the men involved are human beings. There is a somewhat banal subplot which has John Clements as a sporty young lieutenant who seems to have run off with the captain's wife. By the end, as he dies heroically for his ship and his country, he is revealed to be not such a cad after all. But the main issue is the plight of the convoy when it is attacked by a supposedly invincible German pocket battleship. The British cruiser fights a delaying action to enable the destroyers to get the merchantmen to safety and, although heavily outgunned and almost sunk, holds on long enough for help to arrive. -- Website (http://www.britmovie.co.uk/) viewed on 10 Mar 2004
