To escape the edict that condemned all first-born Hebrew males by Egypt's Pharoah, Rameses I, the infant Moses is set adrift on the Nile in a reed basket. Saved by the pharaoh's daughter Bithiah, he is adopted by her and brought up in the court of her brother, Pharaoh Seti. Moses gains Seti's favor and the love of the throne princess Nefertiri. He also gains the hatred of Seti's son, Rameses. When his Hebrew heritage is revealed, Moses is cast out of Egypt, and makes his way across the desert where he marries, has a son and is commanded by God to return to Egypt to free the Hebrews from slavery. In Egypt, Moses's fiercest enemy proves to be not Rameses, but someone near to him

Johnny Guitar by Nicholas Ray( Visual )

14 editions published between 1986 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Johnny Guitar rides into a lonely Arizona town, passing by a dynamite blast and a stage robbery in the canyon below, arriving at Vienna's saloon in the middle of a raging dust storm. He's looking for a new life, for a job where he can play guitar and be nice to the customers. There's no sense, to him anyway, in resurrecting Johnny Logan, the deadly gunslinger he once was and hopes never to be again. But Vienna's feud with local cattle baron Emma Small--over the favors of a cowboy called the Dancin' Kid and the location of the railroad--is approaching its apex, and Johnny's skills will be needed. Both lauded and lamented by critics, the film has been called a psycho sexual melodrama, an anti-McCarthy parable, an expressionistic experiment, and a masterpiece of symbolism in Technicolor so lurid it almost overwhelms the neurotic story. Whatever the final verdict, this is certainly not a typical Western

Dernier western réalisé par John Ford, le grand spécialiste du genre, ce film est incontestablement l'un des plus ambitieux et de ses plus émouvants.

Epopée grandiose et majestueuse, "Les Cheyennes" est un superbe hommage rendu à la souffrance d'un peuple exilé, par l'un des réalisateurs les plus doué et les plus adulé d'Hollywood
