Gerhard Lamprecht built his reputation in the 1930s with socially-critical Berlin films based on the drawings of Heinrich Zille, and hits like Emil and the Detectives (1931, script Billy Wilder). InSomewhere in Berlin - his first postwar film, made just months after the cessation of hostilities - he portrays the people of the shattered city with precision and psychological realism

Frau im Mond = Woman in the moon( Visual )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in No Linguistic content and German and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two years after revolutionizing the science fiction film with his epic Metropolis, director Fritz Long revisited the genre with an ambitious spectacle that dramatizes the first lunar expedition. Rather than a flight of pure fantasy, Lang, screenwriter Thea von Harbou and a group of technical consultants conceived a modernized "Trip to the Moon" grounded in state-of-the-art astrophysics. Spiced with romance and espionage (including a network of diabolical super-spies straight out of Lang's Mabuse films), Woman in the Moon (Frau im Mond) was one of the most influential science fiction films of its era
Diary of a lost girl by G. W Pabst( Visual )

22 editions published between 1929 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A melodrama portraying the adventures of an innocent led astray. The heroine, seduced by her pharmacist father's lascivious assistant, bears an illegitimate child. Judged harshly by her family she is sent to a brutally run reformatory, escapes into prostitution and is finally reinstated in society. Based on a popular novel which mixed emancipatory and sentimental elements, Pabst's film is indeterminately updated. Although presumably set in Weimar Germany there is no attempt to present an historically accurate setting. In conception the reformatory is Prussian, the brothel Victorian. Brooks' quality of knowing innocence is at its most erotic in the brothel scenes. The film attacks the harshness of bourgeois morality without challenging patriarchy, playing upon the woman's predicament while maintaining a male perspective
