Intolerance : a drama of comparisons by D. W Griffith( Visual )

18 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El film explora el tema de la intolerancia por medio de cuatro historias localizadas en momentos diversos de la historia. La película relata alternativamente cuatro historias de injusticia: la matanza de los hugonotes en Francia la noche de San Bartolomé de 1572, la pasión y muerte de Jesucristo, una huelga de trabajadores contemporánea y la caída de la Babilonia del rey Baltasar en el año 539 ante el ataque de Ciro II el Grande, rey del Imperio Persa. Estas cuatro tramas son enlazadas por la imagen de una mujer que mece una cuna. A medida que las historias van llegando a su clímax, Griffith hace más rápido el montaje alternado, con secuencias cada vez más cortas, y creando una tensión hacia el desenlace de las cuatro historias. Sin embargo Intolerancia tuvo grandes pérdidas, pues su éxito no fue el esperado

Douglas Fairbanks, a modern musketeer( Visual )

2 editions published in 2008 and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1916's "His Pictures In The Papers" features Douglas as the meat-loving son of a vegetarian food magnate who finds love with an equally carnivorous young woman. It is also a wry and prescient commentary on fame and the lengths some will go to in order to achieve it. Also from 1916, "The Mystery Of The Leaping Fish" is probably the most unconventional film Fairbanks ever appeared in, as it features him as the cocaine-addicted detective "Coke Ennyday." It was co-scripted by Tod Browning and features a flair for the bizarre he would put on ample display when directing "Dracula" and "Freaks" in the early 1930s. "Flirting With Fate" also features some darker-hued humor in its story of a depressed artist who arranges to be killed just before finding good fortune. The final film from 1916, "The Matrimaniac, " co-stars Constance Talmadge in a comic tale of the lengths a young couple will go to in order to tie the knot. The delightful "Wild And Woolly" has the Wild West-obsessed Douglas finding that the Old West does not require as much taming as he once surmised. Similarly, "Reaching For The Moon" chronicles Doug's realization that the life of a European monarch is not the fairy tale he once believed it to be. It is also an interesting comment on America's perceptions of World War I-era Europe with its depiction of a continent dominated by an unending number of assassination plots and murky counterplots. "The Modern Musketeer" demonstrates the limits and the advantages of living life according to a naive sense of chivalry exemplified by D'Artagnan. Its 17th century prologue provides a window into the sort of costume roles Doug would be playing in the years ahead. "When The Clouds Roll By" from 1919 is notable for its more surreal elements including an incredibly original and complicated dream sequence. 1920's "The Mollycoddle" and 1921's "The Nut" offer two final opportunities for Doug to display his athleticism in a modern setting. "The Mollycoddle" is almost a prototype of "North By Northwest" with Doug as a foppish American "corrupted" by the soft life in Europe who is mistaken for an American agent by a gang of ruthless smugglers. "The Nut" is an amusing film featuring Doug as an eccentric inventor whose efforts to help a young woman in her reform campaign go awry. The final film in the set, "The Mark Of Zorro, " was shot prior to "The Nut." Its overall success with critics and moviegoers convinced Doug that he should focus his efforts on producing similar period adventures--M. Boxwood (Amazon)
