4 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of the greatest pieces of footage in cinema has Huson standing as Noah to watch the animal parade leaving the Ark. Two shots alone give the measure of the picture, the slow dolly-in POV as Eve approaches the tree, and the long take on Cain which begins as a high crane shot and ends as a low up-angle. The last shot, an extreme long shot of Abraham and Isaac dancing together after the sacrifice of the ram, is a cinematic shorthand way of indicating the last verse of the O.T. It helps to know the stories to be able to understand Huston's directing genius. Huston created a new dispesation of flim grammar which has been much copied

The leopard Il gattopardo ( Visual )
9 editions published between 1962 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Set in the 1860s during the years of the Risorgimento - the making of modern Italy - which saw the emergence of the bourqeoisie at the expense of the landed aristocracy. Visconti clearly identified with Don Fabrizio ('the Leopard'), the ageing patriarch of an aristocratic Sicilian family. He is the first to understand the inevitability of the changes. 'If everything is to remain the same, everything must change' is the cynical observation of Don Fabrizio's young nephew, Tancredi, who adjusts to the new order in a manner impossible for Fabrizio. Lampedusa's novel, steeped in lethargy and inertia, was filmed by Visconti in the enervating Sicilian summer. The film culminates in the ball scene which stands as a kind of metaphor for transformiso - the emergence of a new order as reactionary as the old

Il gattopardo The leopard by Luchino Visconti( Visual )
8 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Luchino Visconti's The Leopard (Il Gattopardo) is an epic on the grandest possible scale. The film recreates, with nostalgia, drama, and opulence, the tumultuous years of Italy's Risorgimento, when the aristocracy lost its grip and the middle classes rose and formed a unified, democratic Italy. Burt Lancaster stars as the aging prince watching his culture and fortune wane in the face of a new generation, represented by his upstart nephew (Alain Delon) and his beautiful fiancée (Claudia Cardinale). Awarded the Palme d'Or at the 1963 Cannes Film Festival, The Leopard translates Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa's novel, and the history it recounts, into a truly cinematic masterpiece. This release boasts a stunning digital transfer from the original 70mm negative materials, with restored image and sound, supervised by director of photography Giuseppe Rotunno and is presented in its original wide screen aspect ratio.--Kanopy
