2001, a space odyssey by Stanley Kubrick( Visual )

42 editions published between 1968 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 4,256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"En 1968 sortait le film qui allait bouleverser le monde de la science-fiction. Désormais, il y aurait 'avant' et 'après' '2001 : l'odyssée de l'espace'. Ce chef-d'œuvre échappe d'ailleurs totalement au temps qui passe. Malgré les progrès techniques réalisés depuis sa sortie dans les effets spéciaux, le film n'a pas pris une ride, prouvant de manière éclatante le génie visionnaire de Maître Kubrick... Pour commencer son voyage dans le futur, Kubrick nous offre une vision de notre passé préhistorique puis, grâce à un fondu-enchaîné magistral, nous projette plusieurs milliers d'années en avant. Dans un espace colonisé et aseptisé, l'atronaute Bowman va vivre la plus grande aventure de tous les temps et se trouver confronté à l'immortalité." [Source : jaquette]
Becket by Peter Glenville( Visual )

16 editions published between 1963 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 1,589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite differences in rank and background, King Henry II and Thomas Becket are lifelong friends. The King is in constant conflict with the Church, which refuses to contribute financing to his wars in France, and jealously guards the tax-free status granted it by previous monarchs. When the Archbishop of Canterbury dies, Henry has a brilliant idea: rather than another pious cleric loyal to Rome, he will appoint his old friend, Thomas Becket--technically a deacon--to the post. Unfortunately, Becket takes the job seriously, holding devotion to God and the Church above his loyalty to the throne, or the person of its inhabitant. In opposition to Henry, he proves abler than his predecessors do, and the clash of two powerful personalities leads to destruction

"Inside the Kit Kat Klub of 1931 Berlin, starry-eyed singer Sally Bowles (Liza Minnelli) and an impish emcee (Joel Grey) sound the call to decadent fun, while outside a certain political party grows into a brutal force. Boasting a score by the legendary songwriting partnership of John Kander and Fred Ebb, Cabaret won eight Oscars including awards for Minneli, Grey and director Bob Fosse, who shaped a triumph of style and substance. Come to this cabaret, old chum. You'll never want to leave."--Container
