The Thomas Crown affair by Norman Jewison( Visual )

8 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Crown is a rich, well-educated Boston businessman. He's very good at what he does, but business is apparently no longer enough of a challenge for him--he's bored to within an inch of his life. So Crown has adopted an interesting hobby--he robs banks. He robs banks with such intricate, elaborate, Rube Goldberg-esque plans that it is impossible to trace anything back to him. His sole pleasure in life is getting away with it all. Needless to say, neither the banks nor the Boston police appreciate Crown's hobby. Nor do the banks' insurers, who have to pay for it all. After the latest such, the insurance company brings in their big gun: investigator Vickie Anderson. She quickly homes in on Crown as the only person capable being the ringleader. She knows he did it. He knows he did it. We know he did it. But will she be able to prove he did it before he flees the country--and before she falls in love with him?

Fiona Coneelly, una biondissima bambina di dieci anni, dopo la morte della trentaseinne madre Brigid, si reca a vivere dai nonni paterni. La famiglia Coneelly è depositaria di alcuni segreti leggendari: uno di questi vuole la famiglia, per mezzo dell'antenato Liam, essersi imparentatta con una Selkie, un essere metà foca e metà bellissima donna. Secondo la leggenda, il giovane e taciturno Liam, vedendo su uno scoglio la Selkie che tramutava la sua pelle di foca in quella di una incantevole bruna, decise di sottrarre la pelle dell'animale per sottoporre la donna al suo volere. La donna fu moglie fedele e sevizievole, ma un giorno di molti anni dopo, ritrovata la pelle nascosta sotto il soffitto, la indossò nuovamente e fuggì senza lasciare tracce nel mare. Ecco perchè nella famiglia Coneelly un figlio per ogni generazione nasce con i capelli completamente neri. Anche il fratello di Fiona, Jamie, aveva i capelli corvini, ma la sua culla scomparve nel mare al largo dell'isola di Roan Inish tra lo sgomento dei familiari. Fu anche per quello che i nonni di Fiona decisero di andare via dall'isola. Ora però i due anziani rischiano di trovarsi senza casa, perchè il proprietario della loro abitazione intende sfrattarli. Fiona, che culla la speranza di ritrovare il fratello scomparso anni prima, insieme a suo cugino Eamon, decide di ristrutturare, senza comunicarlo ai nonni, la casa di Roan Inish. La bambina per ben due volte ha visto il piccolo Jamie, ma questi, chiamato dalla sorella, fugge precipitosamenmte in entrambe le occasioni. Inizialmente nessuno crede al ritrovamento di Jamie, poi, progressivamente, i nonni si piegano a quella che potrebbe essere una speranza effettiva di riavere il nipote e decidono di trasferirsi nuovamente sull'isola. E sull'isola Jamie viene visto realmente: il bambino cerca di fuggire, ma sono le stesse foche che lo obbligano - sbarrandogli la strada - a rimanere con la sua famiglia d'origine

America, America by Elia Kazan( Visual )

14 editions published between 1963 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Combining autobiographical elements with the experiences of his uncle, this is Kazan's most personal film, his vision of the impossibility of the American dream. It tells of the struggles of a young man, Stavros, to raise the money to make the journey from Anatolia to the United States and then to find the means to bring the rest of his extended family after him. Stavros is one of the Greek subject peoples suffering under Turkish rule. His dream of freedom in America involves a psychological as well as a physical flight from oppression. But family ties continue to be asserted within him. Kazan sought a non-romantic 'documentary' style and for the first time used a predominantly non-professional cast
