"Set in the impoverished back alleys of Victorian London, The threepenny opera follows underworld antihero Mackie Messer (a.k.a. Mack the Knife) as he tries to woo Polly Peachum and elude the authorities. With a palpable evocation of corruption and dread, set to Weill's irresistible score, The threepenny opera remains a benchmark of early sound cinema." -- container

The sly melodies of composer Kurt Weill and the daring of dramatist Bertolt Brecht come together on-screen under the direction of German auteur G.W. Pabst (Pandora's box) in this classic adaptation of the Weimar-era theatrical sensation. Set in the impoverished back alleys of Victorian London, The threepenny opera follows underworld antihero Mackie Messer (a.k.a. Mack the Knife) as he tries to woo Polly Peachum and elude the authorities. With its palpable evocation of corruption and dread, set to Weill's irresistible score, The threepenny opera remains a benchmark of early sound cinema. It is presented here in both its celebrated German and rare French versions

After WWII, Berlin lies in ruins. For Gustav, Willi and their friends the rubble provides an adventurous, dangerous playground. For Gustav it also helps pass the time, as he longs for his father's return from a POW camp. One day a stranger arrives, looking helpless and hopeless ... Gerhard Lamprecht built his reputation in the 1930s with socially-critical Berlin films based on the drawings of Heinrich Zille, and hits like Emil and the Detectives (1931, script Billy Wilder). InSomewhere in Berlin - his first postwar film, made just months after the cessation of hostilities - he portrays the people of the shattered city with precision and psychological realism

Frau im Mond = Woman in the moon( Visual )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in German and No Linguistic content and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two years after revolutionizing the science fiction film with his epic Metropolis, director Fritz Long revisited the genre with an ambitious spectacle that dramatizes the first lunar expedition. Rather than a flight of pure fantasy, Lang, screenwriter Thea von Harbou and a group of technical consultants conceived a modernized "Trip to the Moon" grounded in state-of-the-art astrophysics. Spiced with romance and espionage (including a network of diabolical super-spies straight out of Lang's Mabuse films), Woman in the Moon (Frau im Mond) was one of the most influential science fiction films of its era
Spione by Fritz Lang( Visual )

3 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in No Linguistic content and German and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Having defined the espionage genre with Dr. Mabuse, the Gambler, Fritz Lang returned to the genre with this surprisingly fast-paced and remarkably grim thriller. Rudolf Klein-Rogge starts as Haghi, the head of an elaborate criminal empire, and Willy Fritsch is the undercover agent assigned to topple the diabolical king from his throne. Filled with the sexual intrigue and high-tech gadgetry that continue to define the genre, SPIES (Spione) remains remarkably contemporary, more than 85 years after its original release

The Threepenny opera by Kurt Weill( Visual )

8 editions published between 1931 and 2004 in German and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paracelsus( Visual )

3 editions published between 1985 and 2021 in German and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A physician, alchemist, and spiritual guru, PARACELSUS (1493-1541) was one of the most enigmatic figures in the history of science. And, like its subject, this 1943 film is shrouded in mystery, even though it was directed by one of the supreme stylists of the German cinema: G.W. Pabst. Werner Krauss (The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari) stars as the Swiss-born scientist, who faces the seemingly impossible task of protecting the German people from a coming plague, and calming a rising tide of mass hysteria. Despite being called "a remarkably interesting film" by The New York Times's Vincent Canby (when it received its belated U.S. premiere in 1974), PARACELSUS continues to be overlooked, along with most all of the films made in Germany during World War II. With fresh eyes, however, we can see that PARACELSUS is not a propaganda film, but the work of an oppressed artist attempting to convey a humanist, possibly subersive message under the gaze of Reich Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels
