Die Büchse der Pandora : Variationen auf das Thema Frank Wedekinds Lulu = Pandora's box : variations on the theme of Frank Wedekind's Lulu by G. W Pabst( Visual )

122 editions published between 1920 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the masters of early German cinema, G. W. Pabst had an innate talent for discovering actresses (including Greta Garbo). And perhaps none of his female stars shone brighter than Kansas native and onetime Ziegfeld girl Louise Brooks, whose legendary persona was defined by Pabst's lurid, controversial melodrama Pandora's box. Sensationally modern, the film follows the downward spiral of the fiery, brash, yet innocent showgirl Lulu, whose sexual vivacity has a devastating effect on everyone she comes in contact with. Daring and stylish, Pandora's box is one of silent cinema's great masterworks and a testament to Brooks' dazzling individuality

Pabst makes a plea for international friendship and peace in this story of a coalmining disaster that unites French and German workers in a tense rescue operation. Pursuing his interest in realism, Pabst used documentary techniques to portray working conditions. Yet, the visual interplay of light, shadow, water, steam and dust in the mine interiors are expressionistic in style

This large-scale tribute to the 16th-century Swiss physician/alchemist Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim, commonly known as Paracelsus, was the second of three films directed by Pabst for the Third Reich and was shot at the Barrandov Studios outside occupied Prague. Paracelsus is appointed town physician of Basel and conflicts with reactionary academics and avaricious merchants to prevent the plague from overtaking the city. The hero embodies those attributes which appealed to the Nazi psyche - "a rebel hero cleansing Germany of ancient practices, anti- intellectualism ("Resolute imagination can accomplish all things," states Paracelsus) and the replacement of Latin (foreign influences) with the German language. The film is particularly noteworthy for the scene in which Death appears. In it, Paracelsus has succeeded in keeping the plague from infiltrating the town by having goods which a merchant attempted to smuggle in destroyed. However, the juggler Fliegenbein, attached to the caravan, manages to escape to a tavern where he starts the infection of the city in a brilliantly choreographed Totentanz (danced by Harald Kreutzberg) before Paracelsus who realizes that the city is doomed. At the completion of the macabre performance, the spectre of Death is seen with his scythe

8 editions published between 1955 and 2009 in German and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the true saga of the anti-Hitler German Army officers' bomb plot of July 20, 1944 that almost killed Nazi Führer Adolf Hitler, and thus very nearly changed the course of World War II ... [In contrast to the reasons behind the plot given in the 2008 Hollywood feature Valkyrie, this film] reveals instead that it was to stop the loss of German lives and the destruction of Germany, and also not to continue the war to a successful conclusion. Thus, it is a more historically accurate film ... Much of the dialogue is lifted straight from historical records."--Container
