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 Tempest by William Shakespeare( Recording )

41 editions published between 1963 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 785 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Our revels now are ended ... this rough magic I here abjure ..." In Shakespeare hinting at the end of his own magnificent career in these and others lines spoken by the great magician, Prospero? The "Tempest" was the last of Shakespeare's comedies, completed just before he retired to his native Stratford-upon-Avon; perhaps this delightful comedy was intended to signal the playwright's farewell to his beloved theater. The "Tempest" reflects Shakespeare's mature genius, with its story of innocence tempered by intrigue, hilarity bounded by melancholy. Audiences the world over still thrill to the "Tempest's" dark comedy and magical fantasy. Sir Michael Redgrave and Vanessa Redgrave helped to build one of England's foremost theatrical families - a tradition that Ms. Redgrave continues today. And Hugh Griffith is one of the nation's greatest character actors. Together, they bring the "Tempest" majestically to life

American smuggler Guy van Strattan decides to investigate the mysterious Mr. Arkadin after hearing about the wealthy man from a prison cellmate, but Arkadin claims amnesia about his own life, sending van Strattan off to investigate Arkadin's past. Three different versions are presented in this collection since Orson Welles never completed a final cut of Mr. Arkadin, several edits of the film exist, in different languages, with different sequences, actors, narrative structures, and even titles. The Corinth version was unearthed by filmaker Peter Bogdanovich in the early 1960s, based on statements made by Welles and editor Renzo Lucidi, the Corinth version is thought to be the latest version to have been under Welles's control. The Confidential report version is believed to be the cut finished by producer Louis Dolivet after he barred Welles from the editing room. The comprehensive version is a new version of the film representing a "best guess" approach following Welles's later statements, style, and continuity clues and includes as much existing footage as possible
