Little women by Louisa May Alcott( Visual )

10 editions published between 1933 and 2013 in English and French and held by 890 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

Flying down to Rio by Thornton Freeland( Visual )

10 editions published between 1991 and 2015 in English and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film, containing the first of many Fred Astaire - Ginger Rogers partnerships, concerns a band in Rio. Songs include "The Carioca," "Orchids in the Moonlight," and the title song. Pilot and band leader Gene Raymond woos Dolores Del Rio, and then learns that she is engaged to a friend of his, after he flys her home to Rio. Fred & Ginger provide the musical moments. Notable for a brilliantly photographed finale with chorus girls on the wings of flying airplanes, the movie was the musical that broke with the rather contrived Busby Berkeley production and moved toward a closer integration of musical and narrative elements. Astaire's dance numbers come not as interruptions but as extensions of the plot

The lost patrol by John Ford( Visual )

6 editions published between 1934 and 2016 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
