La habanera by Douglas Sirk ( Visual )
37 editions published between 1937 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Working at Germany's famed UFA Studios under the very noses of the Nazi authorities that would later force him into Hollywood exile, Sirk transformed a glossy musical vehicle for UFA's "new Garbo" into a dark and intimate anti-colonial melodrama. Desperate to escape the "cold Swedish minds" of her homeland, beautiful Astree falls under the enchanting spell of the Caribbean love serenade La habanera and into the arms of Puerto Rican land baron Don Pedro de Avila. But ten years later, when Astree's old flame arrives in Puerto Rico, all is far from heavenly
Zu neuen Ufern ( Visual )
26 editions published between 1937 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This was the first of a long series of musical vehicles for Swedish singer, Zarah Leander, the Third Reich's substitute for Marlene Dietrich. She stars as Gloria Vane, a British chanteuse, who takes the rap for her lover's embezzlement and is deported to Australia where she is finally "purchased" as the bride of a farmer. The melodramatic plot provided Leander with the opportunity to sing three of her greatest hits: "Yes sir!," "Ich hab' eine tiefe Schnsucht in mir" and "Ich steh' im Regen." UFA held up the film's release, perhaps fearing that the new star was too exotic for popular taste. At the Berlin premiere, however, there were 78 curtain calls, and the astonished studio rushed her into another Sierck film, La Habañera
