The shop around the corner by André Techiné( Visual )

7 editions published between 1940 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,039 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A gentle, ironic romantic comedy in which the salesgirl and the head clerk of a Budapest leather goods and novelty shop are continually at odds with each other. They are unaware that each is the other's 'lonely hearts' correspondent. A good deal of care was taken in creating the milieu in the studio but the theme is universal - the shop could equally be in Middletown, USA. The most naturalistic of Lubitsch's films marked the beginning of the last phase of his career. The setting's independence from the characters is much stronger than in the earlier films where setting has little meaning apart from the characters

Queen Christina by Rouben Mamoulian( Visual )

19 editions published between 1933 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 808 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Garbo, in the role of the 17th century Swedish queen who gives up her throne for her lover, moves through various stages of sexual ambiguity.She plays a sexual identity game fully comparable with that of Dietrich in Morocco and Blonde Venus and Hepburn in Sylvia Scarlett. In the words of critic Charles Affron 'she hovers in that area between male and female, leaning into her identity as womanbut not abandoning the richness of her compound identity' . Mamoulian described the extraordinary 'memorising of the room' scene following a night of love as 'a sonnet...sheer poetry and feeling ...with movement like a dance'

Three girls come to New York City and later, Hollywood, to chase their dreams of stardom: there's Anne, the innocent secretary type who becomes an assistant to a large theatrical agent; Neely, an aspiring chorus girl with pluck who dreams of being a singer; and the beautiful blonde Jennifer, who longs to be a real actress, but is destined to be regarded as a sex object.
