In The Maltese falcon, Sam Spade is a partner in a private-eye firm who finds himself hounded by police when his partner is killed while tailing a man.

Avant-garde. experimental cinema, 1922-1954( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long before home video there flourished an alternative cinema culture on college campuses and around art theaters, where foreign film fare was often accompanied by a short subject. As reliable 16mm film equipment became available to non-professionals, artists independent of film centers began experimenting with cinema. Serious film societies sprang up in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, holding semi-private screenings of non-commercial artistic films. For years, these pictures have been exhibited only in infrequent museum screenings, if at all. This collection is of mainly American pictures, principally one-man artistic endeavors made from little more than an artist's desire to express feelings with a camera

Golden Dawn by Barbra Streisand( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Talkie-era musicals were usually all-star revues or tales of backstage heartache and triumph. [This film] -- based on a 184-performance, 1927 operetta co-created by Oscar Hammerstein II -- ambitiously breaks free of those musical confines to expand the genre's cinematic reach. Set in World War I-era Africa, it tells the tale of Dawn, a tribal woman love with a British soldier but chosen to be the sacrificial bride of a god ... The film was originally shot and released entirely in color (another example of the production team's ambitiousness), but color prints have unfortunately long been lost."--Container

The salvation hunters ; The case of Lena Smith (fragment)( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Before making (sound) film history with The Blue Angel, Viennese-born filmmaker Josef von Sternberg directed a series of thematically and stylistically daring silent films. This DVD presents the first and last of his surviving silents, digitally restored from archival 35mm elements and supplemented by a new video essay by film historian Janet Bergstrom. The Salvation Hunters, von Sternberg's self-financed, socially conscious directorial debut, won praise from Charles Chaplin, among others. It concerns three young people who are taken under the wing of a rich man, only because he wants the young woman to prostitute herself. The sole extant fragment of The Case of Lena Smith brings the director's youthful memories of fin de siècle Vienna vividly to life
