"Set in nineteenth-century England, this gothic ghost story centers around a governess taking care of two orphans in a foreboding Victorian mansion. As eerie apparitions appear and the children's behavior becomes strange, the governess begins to wonder about the fate of the previous governess and her sadistic lover. Could it be that their restless spirits are trying to corrupt the innocence of the children, or is this 'haunting' a product of her own fears and imagination?"--Container

The pumpkin eater by Jack Clayton( Visual )

18 editions published between 1964 and 2010 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anne Bancroft's cathartic lead performance anchors The Pumpkin Eater, Harold Pinter's harrowing, elliptical tale of marital dissatisfaction. Though much of the film concerns her character's fitful bouts with depression, Bancroft charges every moment she's onscreen, employing an array of subtle gestures and facial expressions to convey what her repressed character cannot. Pinter and director Jack Clayton never resort to facile satire or pat assignations of blame; instead, the film charts the slow, irreversible manner in which a chasm can grow between husband and wife. As Bancroft's callous husband, Peter Finch perfectly conveys the subtle, damaging hypocrisies that eventually break his wife's spirit. James Mason has a particularly memorable supporting role as a vitriolic, passive-aggressive acquaintance of the couple

Der grosse Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald( Visual )

23 editions published between 1974 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nie waren die 20er-Jahre wilder als in diesem aufwendigen, romantischen Film nach F. Scott Fitzgeralds Klassiker des Jazz-Zeitalters. Hollywood-Legende Robert Redford ist Jay Gatsby, der in seiner Jugend in die schöne, verwöhnte Daisy Buchanan (Mia Farrow) verliebt war und sie dann an einen reichen Jungen verlor. Aber jetzt ist Gatsby auf rätselhafte Weise zu Reichtum gelangt ... und er ist bereit, alles zu riskieren um Daisy zurückzugewinnen. Mit zwei Oscars ausgezeichnet, glänzt der grosse Gatsby mit ausgezeichnet besetzen Nebenrollen und einem raffinierten Drehbuch von Francis Ford Coppola. Im Mittelpunkt des Film steht die Beschwörung einer faszinierenden Ära, geprägt von heissem Jazz und kaltem Champagner, von Frauen so exotisch und anspruchsvoll wie Orchideen und von Menschen, die daran zerbrachen, zu früh zu viel erreichen.
