Culture and propaganda in World War II : music, film and the battle for national identity by John Morris( Book )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Nazi Party stressed the superiority of Germanic culture, and the promotion of Richard Wagner and Carl Orff was central to Hitler's cultural program. In Britain, the War Office under Winston Churchill chose to promote Edward Elgar and Hubert Parry, but also to appropriate and 'de-Nazify' Ludwig van Beethoven - whose Fifth Symphony was used extensively in wartime broadcasts and has since become synonymous with VE Day. Meanwhile, the work of Ralph Vaughan Williams, whose music was commissioned by Powell and Pressburger for use in 49th Parallel, reclaimed a particularly English past stretching back to the Tudors. A cultural history of music in wartime based on detailed archival research, Culture and Propaganda in World War II analyses the use of music in the work of British and German film-makers and will be essential reading for historians, musicians, film scholars and propaganda analysts

Blazing saddles by Mel Brooks( Visual )

7 editions published between 1974 and 2009 in English and Italian and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Never give a saga an even break! Blazing Saddles is an iconoclastic, not-politically-correct parody; one of the 1970s most successful and popular films. Every clichéd element from every Western ever made is turned upside down and inside out, while retaining all the familiar caricatures--eh, characters--of the genre: a dance-hall girl, a gunslinger, a sheriff, and a town full of pure folk. Mel Brooks redefined film comedy and proved that even sophomoric, scatological humor could be used to ridicule prejudice, injustice, and apathy
