La roue = The wheel( Visual )

3 editions published between 1922 and 2008 in English and French and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"I know that Creation is a Great Wheel which cannot move without crushing someone!"--Victor Hugo. With this quotation begins the story of widowed railroad engineer Sisif. He finds an infant girl in a train wreck, and realizing that her parents are dead, rescues her and decides to raise her as his daughter, Norma. His wife died in childbirth, and Norma will make a good companion for his son, Elie. Knowing nothing of Norma's true origins, Elie and Norma grow up having an unusually close relationship, stopped from developing any further by their belief they are siblings. Haunted by his actions and resultant guilt, Sisif is driven to drink, making him all the more susceptible to the scheming of his wealthy boss, De Hersan, who wants to marry Norma. Though Norma refuses Hersan at first, Sisif's dismissal from the railway forces her to accept, which destroys both men. Elie realizing that he could have had the love of his life all along--once the truth comes out--is especially tragic. This seminal film introduced many innovations in set design and construction, location shooting, cinematic graphic effects, and particularly rhythmic editing. Gance's technique was years ahead of its time and influenced filmmakers all over the world, as his technical mastery is always in the service of the story
Napoleon by Abel Gance( Visual )

7 editions published between 1928 and 2017 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The chef d'ouevre of legendary French filmmaker Abel Gance, Napoleon was supposed to have been the first installment in a multipart film study of the French military hero. Each of the film's set pieces is treated like a movie in itself: the opening pillow fights and snowball battles, staged while Napoleon is still a schoolboy (played by Russian youth Vladimir Roudenko), are choreographed on a scale worthy of D.W. Griffith. The plot proper begins with Napoleon's adult years. From home island of Corsica, Lt. Napoleon (played as an adult by Albert Dieudonné, and old friend of Gance's) decides to side with the Republic during the French Revolution. He quickly proves his mettle in a preliminary skirmish with the British. Offered the office of commander of Paris, Napoleon declines: he does not subscribe to Reign of Terror, nor does he believe in doing battle against Frenchmen. He is thrown in prison, where he meets his wife-to-be Josephine; thanks to a series of governmental upheavals, both are set free. For the next few years, France's bureaucratic bean-counters and pencil-pushers constantly thwart Napoleon's dreams of glory. The film's climax is Napoleon's rallying of the dispirited French troops and his subsequent advance into Italy"--AllRovi WWW site, viewed August 2, 2011
