Tartuffe by F. W Murnau( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most gifted visual storyteller of the German silent era, F.W. Murnau crafted works of great subtlety and emotional complexity through his absolute command of the cinematic medium. Known for such dazzling films as Nosferatu (1922), The last laugh (1924), Faust (1926), and Sunrise (1927), Murnau was also drawn to more intimate dramas exploring the dark corners of the human mind. In Tartuffe, he revisits Moliére's fable of religious hypocrisy, in which a faithful wife (Lil Dagover) tries to convince her husband (Werner Krauss) that their morally superior guest, Tartuffe (Emil Jannings), is in fact a lecherous hypocrite with a taste for the grape. To endow the story with contemporary relevance, Murnau frames Moliére's tale with a modern-day plot concerning a housekeeper's stealthy efforts to poison her elderly master and take control of his estate. Kino Lorber presents the 1925 American release version with its original titles and tinting, from a 35mm nitrate print preserved by the Library of Congress and restored in 2002 by the Bundesarchiv-Filmarchiv Berlin/Koblenz and the Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau Stiftung of Wiesbaden

Der Kongress tanzt The Congress dances by Erik Charell( Visual )

10 editions published between 1931 and 2009 in German and Undetermined and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The advent of sound film and the worsening economic scene spurred the production of escapist German musicals of which The Congress dances is considered one of the most memorable. This first film directed by Charell, whose career was in the theater, is set in Vienna during the Congress of 1814/1815 convened to conclude Napoleon's career. It has been described as "a pastiche of sweeping staircases, open air cafes, costumed balls and military parades ..." and was the most costly German musical to date. Lilian Harvey plays the beautiful Christel Weinzinger, a glove-seller who wins the heart of Czar Alexander who has arrived in Vienna to help determine Napoleon's fate. Harvey's "scintillating" performance earned her a contract, albeit a shortlived one, with Darryl Zanuck's Fox Studios

Herr Tartüff Tartuffe by F. W Murnau( Visual )

4 editions published between 1925 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Molières Gesellschafts- und Sittenkomödie vom Heuchler und Schmarotzer Tartüff, verlegt ins Preußen Friedrichs II.; F.W. Murnau ergänzt die bekannten Ereignisse durch eine stilistisch abgesetzte Rahmenhandlung und lässt sie dadurch als "Film im Film" erscheinen. So unterstreicht er seine Aussage, dass Heuchler überall sind. Virtuos hält der hervorragend inszenierte, filmhistorisch wichtige Stummfilm-Klassiker die Balance zwischen Komödie, Krimi und Kostümfilm." [film-dienst.de]
