The moonstone by Wilkie Collins( Visual )

3 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on the 1868 classic British detective novel The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins, this 1972 BBC drama is a period piece that seems almost theatrical thanks to its thespian delivery, scarcity of background music, and intent focus on character development. While the pace is leisurely and the dialogue sometimes difficult to discern, the story is most intriguing: A stolen Indian jewel makes its way to England and its curse threatens to destroy Rachel Verinder and her entire family even after it is stolen from the Verinder home. The best detectives fail to resolve the case and the repercussions ripple for many years as the plot twists and turns, love ebbs and flows, anger and deceit roil, and mysticism and science vie for supremacy

Fillums by Hugh Leonard( Book )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The year is 1942, and Drane - pronounced 'Dreen' - is the most boring town in Ireland. There is no public transport, and someone is scrambling the wireless signals; Mrs Miniver is banned by the censor; and there are no half-crown hops at the locked-up town hall. The only diversions are the shows put on by the local amateurs, the Standing Ovations, and the old films at the Picture House." "But if life is dull, last evening's 'fillum' is always worth re-living. In the home of Judge Garrity, the eighteen-year-old Timmy calls his father 'Sir' and the pair have 'man-to-man' talks, like Andy Hardy and the Judge. Hansy Mueller, a minor German diplomat, has a fateful encounter with the actors Micheal Mac Liammoir and Hilton Edwards. Sunny Day, a blonde star in the making, joins the Standing Ovations in The Great Waltz. And Canon Turmoyle has been keeping a sensational diary." "Which is not to forget Doctor Moone, who styles himself after his look-alike, Doc Boone in Stagecoach, and goes looking for a showdown with the dastardly Plummer brothers in the streets of Lordsburg. As the narrator Perry Perry, tells his wife Babs, 'We aren't in Kansas any more.' Or aren't they?"--BOOK JACKET
