Gunga Din by George Stevens( Visual )

31 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 925 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"You're a better man than I am, Gunga Din." In that same vein, fans of classic action-adventures won't find any better film than this exhilarating tale, directed by George Stevens. Cary Grant, Victor McLaglen and Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. star as cheeky soldiers of Queen and Empire who never run short of battlefield gallantry and chin-up heroics as they combat a murderous sect in colonial India. Stevens skillfully orchestrates teeming battle sequences and boisterous humor. And Sam Jaffe memorably plays the title role of the lowly water-bearer who yearns to be a solder and seizes the chance to prove his mettle. The years go by, but the fact remains: Gunga Din is "the Hollywood action-adventure yarn" (Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide). - Container

Twentieth century by Howard Hawks( Visual )

13 editions published between 1934 and 2005 in English and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This companion piece to His Girl Friday is a hardboiled farce about theatrical personalities. Hecht and MacArthur's play, on which the script is based, is an irreverent screwball variant on the Svengali-Trilby story. The two lovers live life and respond to each other as if on a stage. The gamut of human emotions is a pretext for play acting. Full of feigned sentimentality, the film parodies the egotism of actors

A trio of Americans in Paris who enter into a very adult 'gentleman's' agreement, in this continental pre-Code comedy freely adapted by Ben Hecht (Notorious) from a play. A risque relationship comedy and a witty take on creative pursuits, it concerns a commercial artist unable, or unwilling, to choose between the equally dashing painter and playwright she meets on a train en route to the City of Light
