Indiscretion of an American wife & Terminal station by Vittorio De Sica( Visual )

29 editions published between 1952 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An American housewife (Jennifer Jones) vacationing in Italy reluctantly decides to put an end to her brief affair with an Italian academic (Montgomery Clift). She flees to Rome's Stazione Termini, where she bids him farewell, but he begs her to stay. The film's plot is simple; its production was not. The troubled collaboration between director Vittorio De Sica and producer David O. Selznick resulted in two cuts of the same film. De Sica's version, Terminal Station, was screened at a length of one-and-a-half hours, but after disappointing previews, Selznick severely re-edited it and changed the title to Indiscretion of an American Wife without De Sica's permission

The search by Fred Zinnemann( Visual )

9 editions published between 1948 and 2009 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In post-World War II Germany, a small boy who survivied Auschwitz wanders alone -- feral, mute and terrified. He finds a makeshift home with a big-hearted GI, while the mother he does not remember searches desperately for him. Starring a then-unknown Montgomery Clift in his movie debut, directed in a near-documentary style by Fred Zinnemann and filmed in the ragged, rubble-strewn skeleton of Nuremberg, The Search vividly captures the horrifying human cost of war. This milestone of filmmaking won two 1948 Academy Awards: Best Motion Picture Story and a special award to Ivan Jandl for his haunting performance as the lost child."--Container

George Stevens a filmmaker's journey( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A film biography of a movie director usually includes conventional genre trappings, like clips of great scenes and memories of old colleagues, as indeed this film does. Mainly, this is an engrossing tour through the George Stevens career that provides a greater understanding of his background, talent, creative preoccupations, and especially the experiences in World War II that irrevocably changed his approach to film making. As head of the Special Coverage unit documenting the war on film, Stevens took the only known color footage of the ground war in Europe, including the liberation of Paris and the horrors of Dachau. If his movies hold a mirror up to America, it is because his personal principles paralleled the highest aspirations of this country. In his films, Stevens offered as much insight on American life and character as he could muster
