3 silent classics by Josef von Sternberg( Visual )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Vienna-born, New York-raised Josef von Sternberg directed some of the most influential, stylish dramas ever to come out of Hollywood. Though best known for his star-making collaborations with Marlene Dietrich, von Sternberg began his career during the final years of the silent era, dazzling audiences and critics with his film's dark visions and innovative cinematography. The titles in this collection, made on the cusp of the sound age, are three of von Sternberg's greatest works, gritty evocations of gangster life (Underworld), the Russian Revolution (The Last Command), and working-class desperation (The Docks of New York) made into shadowy movie spectacle. Criterion is proud to present these long unavailable classics of American cinema, each with two musical scores."--Container

Before they dreamed up that oversized ape, King Kong's creators filmed this magical story of a Thai family's struggle to survive the forces of nature. CHANG is a revelation - not only is it the obvious prototype for Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack's later masterpiece, King Kong but it is a terrifically entertaining film in it own right! Shot entirely in Siam, the film tells the story of a farmer and his family who have settled a small patch of land on the edge of the jungle. Their existence is a constant struggle against the many wild animals around them - bear, tigers, and even - changs! The climactic elephant stampede is still one of the most exciting scenes in cinema history
