Most widely held works by John Woolf
Oliver!( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1,000 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

Nameless and faceless, the killer, known by the code name of Jackal, relentlessly moves toward the date with death that would rock the world. The tension mounts as the methodical preparations of the Jackal are paralleled with the efforts of the police to uncover the plot, which gives the story non-stop, edge-of-your-seat suspense

Moulin Rouge by John Huston( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dans le Paris de 1890, Montmartre et son Moulin Rouge sont devenus le centre du monde intellectuel et artistique. Ses danseuses de French Cancan, sa fameuse Goulue, la célèbre chanteuse Jane Avril ou Valentin le Désossé attirent peintres et écrivains bohèmes. Parmi ces artistes, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec fréquente assidument l'établissement dans lequel il trouve son inspiration auprès des filles de joie de Pigalle et des bouteilles de cognac. Sa rencontre particulière avec une muse légère, Marie Charlet, décuple ses talents autant que sa soif d'ivresse et de création. La déchéance de cet artiste donneront à son œuvre et au Moulin Rouge la reconnaissance d'une postérité artistique durant plus d'un siècle."--Conteneur

The beggar's opera by Benjamin Britten( Recording )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

N 1981 Richard Bonynge, together with an illustrious cast of singers (Joan Sutherland, Kiri Te Kanawa, et. al.) and actors (Angela Lansbury, Warren Mitchell, Michael Hordern, et. al.) went into Kingsway Hall for a recording of a new edition (by Richard Bonynge and Douglas Gamley) of John Gay's The Beggar's Opera. Written in 1728, it is a ballad opera in three acts (Ballad operas were satiric musical plays that used some of the conventions of opera, but without recitative. The lyrics of the airs in the piece are set to popular broadsheet ballads, opera arias, church hymns and folk tunes of the time.) Running for 62 consecutive performances, the piece notched up a record the longest run in theatre history up to that time. Unlike other existing recordings of The Beggar's Opera, this new performing edition features opera stars alongside great actors as well as a full-size (double woodwind) orchestra. One of the most sought after of Sutherland/Bonynge collaborations, the original CD has long been out of print and here reappears with the original liner notes as well as the full libretto

The pumpkin eater by Jack Clayton( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anne Bancroft's cathartic lead performance anchors The Pumpkin Eater, Harold Pinter's harrowing, elliptical tale of marital dissatisfaction. Though much of the film concerns her character's fitful bouts with depression, Bancroft charges every moment she's onscreen, employing an array of subtle gestures and facial expressions to convey what her repressed character cannot. Pinter and director Jack Clayton never resort to facile satire or pat assignations of blame; instead, the film charts the slow, irreversible manner in which a chasm can grow between husband and wife. As Bancroft's callous husband, Peter Finch perfectly conveys the subtle, damaging hypocrisies that eventually break his wife's spirit. James Mason has a particularly memorable supporting role as a vitriolic, passive-aggressive acquaintance of the couple
