Little women by Louisa May Alcott( Visual )

10 editions published between 1933 and 2013 in English and French and held by 892 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This tale centers on the March household: mother "Marmee" and her four daughters; Meg, Amy, Beth and Jo, and chronicles this New England family's joys and tribulations during the Civil War. The girls are committed to "showing father proud," father being a minister gone off to meet the spiritual needs of Yankee soldiers at war. Buoyed by their mother, the girls learn the meaning of giving and sacrifice with a jollity that may be off-putting to jaded 21st century viewers, especially when faced with the March girls presenting a "play" in their living room to the delight of invited neighbors and the consternation of one cantankerous but lovable aunt. The girls' placid lives are disrupted when one sibling falls ill, and the story becomes as real as life, at its most joyful and painful

"Marguerite Harrison, Merian Cooper, and Ernest B. Schoedsack travel through Asia Minor to reach a tribe of nomads in Iran known as the Bakhtiari. They follow the tribesmen on their 48-day trek across deserts, rivers, and mountains to reach summer pasture for their flocks. The hardships and conquests of the 50,000 tribesmen are shown: fording the treacherous waters of the Karun River by floating on rafts buoyed by inflated goatskins; ascending an almost perpendicular mountain only to be confronted by yet another, pathless and covered with deep snow; and finally descending to their goal--a fertile and grassy valley. Personages: Merian Cooper, Ernest B. Schoedsack, Marguerite Harrison, Haidar Khan (chief of Bakhityari tribe), Lufta (son of Haidar Khan)"--AFI catalog, 1921-1930

The lost patrol by John Ford( Visual )

During World War I a desert patrol loses its leader and is both literally and metaphysically lost, as an unseen (and unreal) Arab enemy picks off the men one by one. Highly regarded in its day because of allusions in the script (it has recently been called 'the Moby Dick of combat films'), Lost Patrol is now more interesting as a prototype for the World War II combat film with many of the genre's conventions being brought together for the first time
