Indiscretion of an American wife & Terminal station ( Visual )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An American housewife (Jennifer Jones) vacationing in Italy reluctantly decides to put an end to her brief affair with an Italian academic (Montgomery Clift). She flees to Rome's Stazione Termini, where she bids him farewell, but he begs her to stay. The film's plot is simple; its production was not. The troubled collaboration between director Vittorio De Sica and producer David O. Selznick resulted in two cuts of the same film. De Sica's version, Terminal Station, was screened at a length of one-and-a-half hours, but after disappointing previews, Selznick severely re-edited it and changed the title to Indiscretion of an American Wife without De Sica's permission

Danny McCullough are part of the American force sent to help the war-torn German civilians.

The search by Fred Zinnemann ( Visual )
5 editions published between 1948 and 2009 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In post-World War II Germany, a small boy who survivied Auschwitz wanders alone -- feral, mute and terrified. He finds a makeshift home with a big-hearted GI, while the mother he does not remember searches desperately for him. Starring a then-unknown Montgomery Clift in his movie debut, directed in a near-documentary style by Fred Zinnemann and filmed in the ragged, rubble-strewn skeleton of Nuremberg, The Search vividly captures the horrifying human cost of war. This milestone of filmmaking won two 1948 Academy Awards: Best Motion Picture Story and a special award to Ivan Jandl for his haunting performance as the lost child."--Container
