This classic adaptation of Somerset Maugham's short story "Rain" (originally titled "Miss Thompson") stars Joan Crawford as Sadie Thompson, a fun-loving prostitute on a South Seas island who earns the enmity of a self-righteous missionary played by Walter Huston. The scandalous subject made the film extremely controversial upon its release

The son of the sheik by Geo Fitzmaurice( Visual )

5 editions published between 1926 and 2000 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Son of the Sheik, Rudolph Valentino's final film, may well be his best. A sequel to Valentino's 1922 blockbuster The Sheik, this 1926 film finds the legendary latin lover playing the dual role of the now-older Sheik as well as his son Ahmed. The son of the sheik, falls in love with Yasmin, daughter of a renegade Frenchman who leads a troupe of mountebanks and thieves. Believing that Yasmin has betrayed him, Ahmed kidnaps the girl, spirits her away to his desert tent, and rapes her (not shown, but suggested by a series of soft-focus close ups). Son of the Sheik was partially filmed on location in the deserts of Yuma, Arizona, under conditions that led the majority of the cast and crew to fall seriously ill. Rudolph Valentino had made Son of the Sheik in hopes of boosting his career; he died before the film was released. At the age of 31, having achieved international celebrity, Valentino died from complications related to appendicitis. Tens of thousands of fans waited in line to view his coffin in the Frank Campbell Funeral Home in New York City
The Battle of the Sexes by D. W Griffith( Visual )

1 edition published in 2000 and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

D.W. Griffith is properly esteemed as the "Father of Film" from his years of discovery making short films at the pioneer Biograph Company and for such pioneering features as The Birth of a Nation, Intolerance, Broken Blossoms, Way Down East and Orphans of the Storm, but his later films - several of them lost or almost unavailable - are often dismissed as back efforts of a talent in decline. Griffith's 1928 comedy-drama The Battle of the Sexes belies this perception. The story involves a middle-aged magnate (humanitarian Jean Hersholt, whose film performances extended from Greed to Dr. Christian) who makes a fool of himself when he strays from his loving but frowsy wife (Belle Bennett, so unforgettable in Stella Dallas) and children (Billy Bakewell and Sally O'Neill) into the cynical arms of a gold digger (Phyllis Haver) and her dishonest lover (Don Alvarado). As these characters are hurt and healed, Griffith expertly draws fine lines between tragedy and comedy, and his skill makes all the difference between emotional satisfaction and formulaic melodrama. Like so many of Griffith's earlier films, there must be elements of autobiography in this one, for the 53-year-old filmmaker's sympathy is all with the middle-aged philanderer whose relationships with women are no less myopic than Griffith's own. Coming in the year of transition to sound, The Battle of the Sexes was originally released with synchronized recorded music, including an obligatory song. Griffith is reported to have been critical of the music, which has been lost in any case, but compilers Rodney Sauer and Susan Hall worked the song into the new score prepared for this edition and recorded in digital stereo by the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra. The image has been digitally mastered from a vintage print made directly from the original camera negative

[Abridged feature: highlights of Lincoln's career]( Visual )

1 edition published in 1930 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This is an abridged version, while the following summary describes the feature version. "After a brief scene depicting the circumstances of Lincoln's birth in 1809, we find him at the age of twenty-two, "the ugliest and smartest man in New Salem, Ill." and a clerk in D. Offut's general store. In the spring of 1834, Abe is courting Ann Rutledge when she dies abruptly of fever, causing him great suffering. After three years of fighting in the Indian war as Captain of Volunteers, Abe begins his law practice. At a ball given by former governor Edwards, the awkward lawyer meets Mary Todd and later, despite misgivings, marries her. His reputation as a debater wins him the Republican nomination to the presidency, and he is elected. John Brown and the Abolitionists capture the armory at Harper's Ferry, and John Wilkes Booth, a fanatic exhorter, cries out for volunteers to avenge the act; thus the Civil War is launched. Following hostilities at Fort Sumter and Bull Run, Washington itself is threatened. Lincoln makes a personal visit to a battlefield and comes upon a court-martial in progress; he asks the defendant to explain his actions, pardons him, and orders him back to his regiment. The signing of the Emancipation Proclamation intensifies the struggle, and Lincoln is encouraged by Congress to end the war. Lincoln selects Grant to lead Union forces. While conferring with Stanton, the President receives word of Sheridan's defeat; he tells Stanton of his vision of a ship with white sails before each victory. ... The last of the Confederate forces under Lee are defeated, and the war is over. On the night of 14 Apr 1865, Lincoln speaks from a box at Ford's Theatre, and just after the play has begun, he is shot by John Wilkes Booth; the resulting uproar gives way to the sobbing of an unseen multitude, and a voice calls out: 'Now he belongs to the ages'." - American Film Institute Catalog of Feature Films
