Captain Geoffrey Thorpe is the terror of the Spanish Main, striking crippling blows against the oppressive Spanish war machine, freeing English slaves from the galley ships and filling England's coffers with Spanish gold--with the tacit approval of England's Queen Elizabeth I. When the dashing Thorpe raids and sinks a diplomatic vessel bringing ambassador Don José Alvarez de Cordoba and his beautiful niece Dona Maria to England, he's gentlemanly enough to deliver them safely onto English shores--along with the galley full of wrongfully imprisoned slaves. Smarting from this insult, Don Alvarez conspires with the duplicitous Lord Wolfingham to stop Thorpe and smash the Sea Hawks: the small fleet of privateers that stands between England and King Philip of Spain's thirst for global domination!

They drive by night by Raoul Walsh( Visual )

8 editions published between 1940 and 2006 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"George Raft and Humphrey Bogart share a driving ambition in They Drive by Night, a feisty tale of brothers trying to make it as independent truckers. Ann Sheridan plays a truck-stop waitress dishing both the daily special and the patter. And Ida Lupino is a headstrong executive mixing business and romance with murder. With Bogart again riding shotgun en route to leading-man stardom (which he would achieve the following year) and Raft at the wheel in one of his best roles, this fine example of Warner Bros. social-conscience filmmaking (directed by Raoul Walsh) proved a sturdy vehicle for both. It proved even more fortuitous for Lupino : her courtroom breakdown made her an "overnight" sensation that landed her a studio contract." -- Case

Irving Berlin's This is the army( Visual )

30 editions published between 1943 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adapted from Irving Berlin's Broadway production similarly titled, This is the Army, the big screen version employs Jerry Jones (George Murphy) as an entertainer in a show called Yip Yip Yaphank, which is performed entirely by soldiers during World War I. In an unfortunate turn of events, Jerry is wounded in battle, and his dance career is sadly cut short. Wanting to remain in show business, he turns to producing. Then when the US becomes involved in World War II, Jerry decides to put on his own all-soldier review entitled, This is the Army. A highlight of the film is an appearance by Irving Berlin himself, singing his version of "Oh, How I Hate To Get Up In the Morning" and an all-star cast including guests Kate Smith, who sings, "God Bless America," and boxing great Joe Lewis. Another notable fact about This is the Army is that all of the box-office and stage production proceeds were donated to the Army Emergency Relief Fund. - Container

Robin Hood by Allan Dwan( Visual )

8 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A big-screen spectacle that ranks as one of the monumental accomplishments of the era, 'Robin Hood' is a timeless story of romance and intrigue, staged on a herculean scale. Its sets were erected by an army of 500 carpenters and towered 90 feet in the air, covering ten acres of land, historically accurate to the smallest detail. Robin Hood recreates 'the chivalry of England in all its glory' as it unveils the conflicts and betrayals that threaten to destroy the kingdom of Richard the Lion-Hearted (Wallace Beery). As the Earl of Huntington, Fairbanks epitomizes the valiant, loyal knight immortalized in Arthurian legend, gently wooing the virtuous lady Marian (Enid Bennett). When King Richard, Huntington and a band of warriors embark on a crusade to Palestine, Richard's conniving brother John (Sam De Grasse) assumes the throne and turns the once-idyllic empire into a Dante-esque sty of corruption. In the darkest hour, Huntington shirks off his noble demeanor and is transformed into Robin Hood, a hyper-animated avenger who, just a few leaps ahead of his merry men, breathlessly storms the battlements in pursuit of Prince John, the High Sheriff of Nottingham (William Lowery) and all who stand in the way of justice

A final act of cowardice leads to terrible consequences, but Plunkett sees in them a chance to redeem himself
