La grande illusion by Jean Renoir( Visual )

83 editions published between 1937 and 2013 in French and English and held by 800 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
The man who knew too much by Xiqukaoke(Alfred Hitchcock) daoyan( Visual )

38 editions published between 1934 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Married couple Bob and Jill Lawrence are vacationing in Switzerland with daughter Betty. A Frenchman who befriends the family is shot through the heart during a dance with the young mother.

What follows is an unusually fine dramatic story, filled with hallmark Hitchcockian twists and turns, breathless chase scenes and superb acting."--Container
The man who knew too much by Alfred Hitchcock( Visual )

4 editions published between 1934 and 2013 in English and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An ordinary British couple vacationing in Switzerland suddenly find themselves embroiled in a case of international intrigue when their daughter is kidnapped by spies plotting a political assassination. This fleet and gripping early thriller from the Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, was the first film the director made after signing to the Gaumont-British Picture Corporation. Besides affirming Hitchcock's genius, it gave the brilliant Peter Lorre his first English-speaking role, as slithery villain. With its tension and gallows humor, it's pure Hitchcock, and it set the tone for such films as The 39 steps and The Lady Vanishes."--Back of container
