Yentl Mendel is the boyish daughter and only child of long widowed Rebbe Mendel. He teaches Talmud to local boys and secretly to Yentl since girls are not allowed to learn the law.

She makes the momentous decision to leave the village and, disguised as a boy and calling herself Anshel, she seeks and gets admitted to a Yeshiva to study. She befriends Avigdor who is engaged to Haddas. Her family calls off the wedding when they discover Avigdor's brother committed suicide. Anshel then finds 'him'-self in the awkward position of being called into service as substitute bridegroom. But Haddas still wants Avigdor. After numerous complications, including Avidor and Yentl falling in love with each other and she telling him her secret, everyone gets what they want in life. Anshel, now Yentl once again, goes off to America to pursue her dream of serious study in Yeshiva, where she will be able to study without needing to hide her identity as a woman
The Thomas Crown affair by Norman Jewison( Visual )

48 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 910 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Crown is a rich, well-educated Boston businessman. He's very good at what he does, but business is apparently no longer enough of a challenge for him--he's bored to within an inch of his life. So Crown has adopted an interesting hobby--he robs banks. He robs banks with such intricate, elaborate, Rube Goldberg-esque plans that it is impossible to trace anything back to him. His sole pleasure in life is getting away with it all. Needless to say, neither the banks nor the Boston police appreciate Crown's hobby. Nor do the banks' insurers, who have to pay for it all. After the latest such, the insurance company brings in their big gun: investigator Vickie Anderson. She quickly homes in on Crown as the only person capable being the ringleader. She knows he did it. He knows he did it. We know he did it. But will she be able to prove he did it before he flees the country--and before she falls in love with him?

Vivre sa vie : film en douze tableaux by Da Gao( Visual )

39 editions published between 1962 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 862 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vivre sa vie was a turning point for Jean-Luc Godard and remains one of his most dynamic films, combining brilliant visual design with a tragic character study. The lovely Anna Karina, Godard's greatest muse, plays Nana, a young parisian who aspires to be an actress but instead ends up a prostitute, her downward spiral depited in a series of discrete tableaux of daydreams and dances. Featuring some of Karina and Godard's most iconic moments-from her movie theater vigil with The passion of Joan of arc to her seductive pool-hall strut-Vivre sa vie is a landmark of the french new wave that still surprises at every turn. --Conteneur
