The man who knew too much by Alfred Hitchcock( Visual )

4 editions published between 1934 and 2013 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An ordinary British couple vacationing in Switzerland suddenly find themselves embroiled in a case of international intrigue when their daughter is kidnapped by spies plotting a political assassination. This fleet and gripping early thriller from the Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, was the first film the director made after signing to the Gaumont-British Picture Corporation. Besides affirming Hitchcock's genius, it gave the brilliant Peter Lorre his first English-speaking role, as slithery villain. With its tension and gallows humor, it's pure Hitchcock, and it set the tone for such films as The 39 steps and The Lady Vanishes."--Back of container
The life and death of Colonel Blimp by Michael Powell( Visual )

5 editions published between 1943 and 2013 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on cartoonist David Low's parody of the old-fashioned British professional soldier, set in his ways and unable to adapt to the brutality of modern war. This story follows the career of Clive Candy, at first an idealistic, young Boer War hero, then a brigadier general, serving honorably in World War I. Finally, by World War II, he has become a bald, overweight, querulous old man, angry that his age and military experience are held in contempt, and bewildered that his lifelong code of gentlemanly conduct has become an anachronism in a world threatened by a monster like Hitler

Sister Clodagh (Kerr) is a serious young novitiate assigned to lead a crucial mission, with the reluctant recommendation of her Mother Superior. Together with a disparate group of nuns, Sister Clodagh will face strange peoples and customs, a harsh and unforgiving climate and a wrenching struggle with her own past that will prove the ultimate test of her devotion and faith
A Canterbury tale by Michael Powell( Visual )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This compelling drama is now recognised as one of Powell and Pressburger's finest films. Their reworking of Chaucer's 14th century tale, largely set in wartime Kent, centres on American army sergeant John Sweet, British soldier Dennis Price and landgirl Sheila Sim who, before making a modern-day pilgrimage to Canterbury, solve the bizarre mystery of a man who pours glue over the hair of village girls at night

A matter of life and death by Michael Powell( Visual )

2 editions published between 1946 and 2003 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Against all odds a RAF bomber pilot survives the shooting down of his plane. It seems that the celestial bureaucracy has this time made a mistake and sends an angel to take him before the tribunal to decide his case as doctors fight for his life. Powell and Pressburger approached their Ministry of Information brief to make a film to promote improved Anglo-American relations with the wit and imagination to outlast any short-term propagandist intent. Their film can be read as a satire on the emerging welfare state, a monochrome heaven (the socialist utopia) contrasted with a technicolor earth. Confounding the British critical establishment of the time, it subversively focuses on the process of representation - the film's two worlds can be regarded as the two discourses of fiction and documentary - foreshadowing Powell and Pressburger's The Red Shoes and Powell's Peeping Tom
