Oliver!( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1,007 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A young orphan, Oliver is left to fend for himself until he is befriended by a band of young thieves who quickly train him in their craft. But Oliver is not content to be a thief--for he knows that life holds great joys and true happiness cannot be stolen--but must be earned. Arguably the last great old-fashioned movie musical to receive near-universal critical acclaim, Oliver! first hit screens more than 37 years ago. As transformed into a film, the timeless West End and Broadway show remains incredibly faithful to the classic work of literature by Charles Dickens, dank and dark, an anomaly of song-and-dance cinema. A film of many facets, it is both a warts-and-all view of Victorian London, an adaptation of a classic novel, a salient slice of significant social commentary, and a rip-roaring tune-filled toe tapper to boot

The L-shaped room by Bryan Forbes( Visual )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The L-Shaped Room stars Leslie Caron as a unmarried, pregnant French girl. Arranging for an abortion (illegal at that time), she takes up residence in a ramshackle British boarding house where most of the other residents are also outcasts of society. Many of the character types were new to films of the era, but have since become cliches: the understanding young black, the lesbian actress, the prostitutes without golden hearts. There is also a Christopher Isherwood type writer (Tom Bell) who observes the passing parade and writes a book on the subject."--Www.allmovie.com

I am a camera by Henry Cornelius( Visual )

1 edition published in 1955 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Apart from being based on the same material as Cabaret (a theatrical adaptation of Isherwood's Berlin stories), this film is notable for providing the third of a trio of roles (the others were in Member of the Wedding and East of Eden) for Julie Harris to make her mark on the screen in the early to mid fifties. She plays the half-courtesan Sally Bowles opposite Harvey's Isherwood with wit and intelligence, a role she had also played on the New York stage. By general concensus I Am a Camera is less successful in portraying the amoral, twilight world of Berlin during the last days of Weimar and the unconventional relationship between Bowles and Isherwood, repressing the latter's gayness. As it was, the film ran into censorship problems in the U.S.A. Isherwood harshly dismissed it as "digusting ... near pornographic trash"
