Westfront 1918 : Vier von der Infanterie( Visual )

1 edition published in 2018 in German and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

G.W. Pabst brought the war movie into a new era with his first sound film, a mercilessly realistic depiction of the nightmare that scarred a generation, in the director's native Germany and beyond. Digging into the trenches with four infantrymen stationed in France in the final months of World War I, Pabst illustrates the harrowing ordeals of battle with unprecedented naturalism, as the men are worn away in body and spirit by firefights, and the disillusion that greets them on the home front

Die 3groschenoper = The threepenny opera by Kurt Weill( Visual )

4 editions published between 1931 and 2019 in German and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

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

Ohm Krüger by Hans Steinhoff( Visual )

3 editions published between 1941 and 2007 in German and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This propagandistic epic, seven years in the making, was Goebbels' initial attempt to equal Gone with the wind. It is a heroic portrait of the Boer statesman who recounts his life story as he lay dying in a Swiss hospital. His sons, Jan and Adrian, voice opposing views concerning the validity of their father's struggles during the Boer Wars. Although their ideological debate is handled with some skill, the primary purpose of the film was to stir anti-British feeling. The villainous English incite the African tribespeople by distributing guns during a mission service and to the strains of "Onward Christian soldiers." They feed rotten meat to Boer women and children (in a scene extracted from Eisenstein's Battleship Potemkin) and incarcerate them in the massive concentration camps they have established on South African soil. The viewer is informed that 26,000 women and children were murdered. Ohm Krüger was selected Best Foreign Film at the Venice Festival and designated the first Film of the Nation at home. In an elaborate ceremony, Goebbels awarded its star Emil Jannings the "Ring of Honor of the German Cinema."

8 editions published between 1921 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Gothic story of murder, innuendo, suspicion and hatred. At a weekend gathering in Castle Vogeloed, a few aristocrats are awaiting Baroness Safferstätt.

The Baroness appears with her new husband and resents the man's presence but for reasons other than we assume. Oetsch stays, arguing that he is not the murderer but will find the real one.
