3 silent classics by Josef von Sternberg ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 208 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

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"La película fue interpretada por personas con deformidades reales. No se utilizaron efectos especiales de maquillaje, excepto en una breve escena al final de la película. Esta versión cinematográfica ... toma de su argumento original tan solo la relación entre Hans [un enano, artista de circo] y la trapecista, centrándose más en el ambiente que rodea a los personajes principales. La historia de la caída y venganza del enano burlado está mezclada por la extraña vida de sus compañeros de circo hasta convertirse en el verdadero argumento de la película mostrando su vida interior y sus relaciones con los demás. Es destacable la figura de grupo que intenta reflejar el director en las relaciones internas de los "fenómenos de circo", que forma el verdadero trasfondo de la película: al principio explican que tienen un código que consiste en que el dañar a uno se dañará a todos los demás. En la escena de la boda los "Freaks" aceptan a la trapecista en su círculo interno: se convierte en "uno de los nuestros". Cuando se dan cuenta del engaño hacia su compañero Hans, su venganza hará literal ese título. Y esta parte es la única justificación de la calificación de esta película como perteneciente al género de terror."--Wikipedia
