Pandora's box by G. W Pabst( Visual )

28 editions published between 1928 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the masters of early German cinema, G.W. Pabst had an innate talent for discovering actresses (including Greta Garbo). And perhaps none of his female stars shone brighter than Kansas native and onetime Ziegfeld girl Louise Brooks, whose legendary persona was defined by Pabst's lurid, controversial melodrama Pandora's box. Sensationally modern, the film follows the downward spiral of the fiery, brash, yet innocent showgirl Lulu, whose sexual vivacity has a devastating effect on everyone she comes in contact with. Daring and stylish, Pandora's box is one of silent cinema's great masterworks and a testament to Brooks' dazzling individuality
Kameradschaft = Comradeship by G. W Pabst( Visual )

62 editions published between 1931 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pabst makes a plea for international friendship and peace in this story of a coalmining disaster that unites French and German workers in a tense rescue operation. Pursuing his interest in realism, Pabst used documentary techniques to portray working conditions. Yet, the visual interplay of light, shadow, water, steam and dust in the mine interiors are expressionistic in style
Westfront 1918 : Vier von der Infanterie( Visual )

5 editions published in 2018 in German and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

G.W. Pabst brought the war movie into a new era with his first sound film, a mercilessly realistic depiction of the nightmare that scarred a generation, in the director's native Germany and beyond. Digging into the trenches with four infantrymen stationed in France in the final months of World War I, Pabst illustrates the harrowing ordeals of battle with unprecedented naturalism, as the men are worn away in body and spirit by firefights, and the disillusion that greets them on the home front
Kameradschaft( Visual )

Set in 1919 but based on a real incident from 1906. A coal mine collapses on the frontier between Germany and France, trapping a team of French miners inside.

Die Büchse der Pandora = Loulou by G. W Pabst( Visual )

14 editions published between 1928 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paracelsus( Visual )

8 editions published between 1943 and 2013 in German and English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This large-scale tribute to the 16th-century Swiss physician/alchemist Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim, commonly known as Paracelsus, was the second of three films directed by Pabst for the Third Reich and was shot at the Barrandov Studios outside occupied Prague. Paracelsus is appointed town physician of Basel and conflicts with reactionary academics and avaricious merchants to prevent the plague from overtaking the city. The hero embodies those attributes which appealed to the Nazi psyche - "a rebel hero cleansing Germany of ancient practices, anti- intellectualism ("Resolute imagination can accomplish all things," states Paracelsus) and the replacement of Latin (foreign influences) with the German language. The film is particularly noteworthy for the scene in which Death appears. In it, Paracelsus has succeeded in keeping the plague from infiltrating the town by having goods which a merchant attempted to smuggle in destroyed. However, the juggler Fliegenbein, attached to the caravan, manages to escape to a tavern where he starts the infection of the city in a brilliantly choreographed Totentanz (danced by Harald Kreutzberg) before Paracelsus who realizes that the city is doomed. At the completion of the macabre performance, the spectre of Death is seen with his scythe
