Oliver!( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1,021 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A young orphan, Oliver is left to fend for himself until he is befriended by a band of young thieves who quickly train him in their craft. But Oliver is not content to be a thief--for he knows that life holds great joys and true happiness cannot be stolen--but must be earned. Arguably the last great old-fashioned movie musical to receive near-universal critical acclaim, Oliver! first hit screens more than 37 years ago. As transformed into a film, the timeless West End and Broadway show remains incredibly faithful to the classic work of literature by Charles Dickens, dank and dark, an anomaly of song-and-dance cinema. A film of many facets, it is both a warts-and-all view of Victorian London, an adaptation of a classic novel, a salient slice of significant social commentary, and a rip-roaring tune-filled toe tapper to boot
The third man by Graham Greene( Book )

46 editions published between 1968 and 2011 in English and German and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The setting is post-war Vienna, a once-beautiful city that was now nothing but war rubble. It's administered by the four victorious nations, Russia, France, Great Britain and the United States, and they all communicate with each other in the language of their former enemy. There's a somber mood, a feeling of decay and destruction throughout. And, of course there's a mystery, and lots of suspense, as the reader is swept into a story of intrigue, betrayal and constantly changing alliances. --Linda Linguvic at Amazon.com
