All quiet on the western front by Lewis Milestone( Visual )

87 editions published between 1930 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 3,670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This story is neither an accusation nor a confession, and least of all an adventure, for death is not an adventure to those who stand face to face with it. It will try simply to tell of a generation of men who, even though they may have escaped its shells, were destroyed by the war. . ." title screens. 1914. War has broken out in Europe. A group of German college students are convinced to enlist after their teacher, Professor Kantorek, gives an impassioned speech about the honor of dying for their Fatherland. Paul Bäumer--sent to the Western Front where the fighting is most severe--is soon stripped of illusions about war being glorious. There is nothing but fear, pain, and the randomness of death. Paul is the sole survivor of his group and when he returns home, he denounces the war and his professor. Returned to the action, Paul tries to cope with the incessant fear that eats away at a soldier's insides, turning them hollow and empty
Mr. Deeds goes to town by Frank Capra( Visual )

4 editions published between 1936 and 2006 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Longfellow Deeds, small town greeting card poet, idealistically comes to New York intent on giving away his inherited millions to those most in need. This was the first of Capra's thirties trilogy of populist comedy-dramas (see also Mr. Smith ... and Meet John Doe). The common theme of the small town Yankee straightening out the cynical big city is in the tradition of American cracker barrel humour epitomised by Will Rogers (Dr Bull, Judge Priest). Capra injects a spark of truth into the film's fanciful premise through the humanity of Cooper as the sap - and Arthur as the newspaperwoman with a cynical exterior

Deutschland 1915, mitten im Ersten Weltkrieg. Paul Bäumer und weitere sechs Jungen melden sich, angespornt von den vaterländischen Phrasen ihres deutsch-nationalen Lehrers, freiwillig an die Westfront. Dort weicht die Kriegsbegeisterung der Jungs schnell allgemeiner Ernüchterung. Die noch halbwüchsigen Gymnasiasten werden von ihrem sadistischen Ausbilder Himmelstoß entwürdigend gedrillt, bevor sie aufs Schlachtfeld abkommandiert werden. Dort wird sich Paul Bäumer angesichts des Todes seiner Freunde, die im Namen von Volk und Vaterland nacheinander abgeschlachtet werden, der Sinnleere von Krieg und Hurra-Patriotismus zwar bewußt, doch auch er kann der Todesmaschinerie nicht entrinnen. Bäumer fällt im Oktober 1918 wenige Tage vor Kriegsende, als er in der Ödnis des Schlachtfeldes nach einem Schmetterling greift. Am gleichen Tag meldet der Heeresbericht: "Im Westen nichts Neues".(, 09.11.2004)

Chloe, a young reporter from Los Angeles, gets the opportunity of a lifetime. She has an interview with Ike Reuben, a film-maker and novelist whose work has been a constant source of inspiration for her since university. This opportunity triggers in Chloe's past a series of flashbacks containing memories that may actually threaten to impede her interview. But Ike has a past of his own to address, manifesting itself in the form of dreams, which are the result of some kind of narcolepsy, or uncontrollable 'sleep attacks'. He is somehow able to slip in between the cracks, laying unconscious in one reality, while living and witnessing another. When the two meet, they discover that their pasts are actually what can set them free, and that the line between memories and dreams is finer than they could ever imagine

Montauk babies : (or the many lifes of Al Leedskalnin) by O. H Krill( )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If apple-pie, soda, cigarettes, and the quality of music on your radio are a lie, then time-travel and the 5th dimension are real. If you've ever questioned your government's intentions or what anyone insists "reality" is, prepare yourself for a wild ride that even Alice would not be prepared to survive. In the very near future, the world as we know it is about to end, perhaps, not exactly as expected. It's the year 2011, and the earth is riddled with inter-dimensional holes, UFO's, and more technology and media control than anyone ever predicted. Only one man can stop it, Al Leedskalnin. Al is spiritually and physically falling apart. On one hand he is tortured with cut-up memories of his life as a guinea pig for secret government experiments. Experiments that may or may not have happened well over fifty years ago in a secret underground base in Montauk, Long Island, NY. On the other, he remembers times past that don't necessarily connect: World War II ... the early days of the American frontier ... alien abductions. Al faces the imminent destruction all things human head on, while clinging to his re-memories and longing for the simpler days of the '40's and '50's. But he can't do it alone. Peabody Freeman, a quantum physicist with a penchant for all-nite diners and fast food, is a prisoner on the same journey and is the scientific brains behind the operation
