What is cinema? by André Bazin( )

17 editions published between 1967 and 2005 in English and held by 1,403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Andre Bazin's What Is Cinema? (volumes I and II) have been classics of film studies for as long as they've been available and are considered the gold standard in the field of film criticism. Although Bazin made no films, his name has been one of the most important in French cinema since World War II. He was co-founder of the influential Cahiers du Cinema, which under his leadership became one of the world's most distinguished publications. Championing the films of Jean Renoir (who contributed a short foreword to Volume I), Orson Welles, and Roberto Rossellini, he became the protege of Francois Truffaut, who honors him touchingly in his forword to Volume II. This new edition includes graceful forewords to each volume by Bazin scholar and biographer Dudley Andrew, who reconsiders Bazin and his place in contemporary film study. The essays themselves are erudite but always accessible, intellectual, and stimulating. As Renoir puts it, the essays of Bazin "will survive even if the cinema does not.""--PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

La grande illusion by Jean Renoir( Visual )

140 editions published between 1937 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 968 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Renoir's meditation on friendship and chivalry in the midst of Europe's first mechanized war, was based on his own experiences as a French combat pilot and a prisoner of war. Renoir wrote the film as Europe slid towards World War II. Three French pilots, shot down during World War I, are drawn together during an escape attempt, despite different class backgrounds. Captain de Boeldieu is a wealthy aristocrat; Lieutenant Maréchal a self assured mechanic; and Rosenthal, a prosperous banker. Together they develop a daring plan to escape their imprisonment in a Bavarian castle. While escaping, Captain de Boeldieu is shot by the camp commander, but Marechal and Rosenthal manage to get away and eventually make their way back to France. When it was released, the film received an Academy Award as well as a prize at the Venice Film Festival, but due to the film's pacifist stance, it was banned in Germany and Italy

This story concerning the creation and dissolution of a utopian society foreshadowed the tragedy that was soon to overtake Europe. When Batala, the owner of a small publishing firm, absconds with the firm's capital, the employees unite to take over the company and collectively publish a series of comic books written by Monsieur Lange, one of the workers. The comic books, based on the adventures of the mythical cowboy hero, "Arizona Jim," are an instant success. The workers' cooperative experiment is disrupted, however, when the unscrupulous Batala returns to assume possession of the now prosperous company. To preserve the employees' freedom, Lange shoots his boss and is forced to become a fugitive. (also available on 16 mm film)
