A highly fictionalized account of the life of George Armstrong Custer from his arrival at West Point in 1857 to his death at the battle of the Little Big Horn in 1876. Custer has little discipline at the academy but is prepared to stand up to the senior cadet, Ned Sharp, who makes his life miserable. While there he catches the eye of the commandant, Col. Phil Sheridan and also meets his future bride, Elizabeth Bacon. His wife arranges with Gen. Scott for him to be appointed a Lt. Colonel and given command of the 7th Cavalry. Custer is depicted as a friend of the Indians and fights his old nemesis Ned Sharp, who is taking advantage of them and trying to provoke a war with his own financial gain in mind. Custer dies in the now famous battle on June 25, 1876 at the age of 36
The birth of a nation by David Wark Griffith( Visual )

23 editions published between 1915 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 786 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

D.W. Griffith, the son of a Confederate colonel ruined by the Civil War, adapted the Reverend Thomas Dixon's novel The Clansman to produce an epic story of the Civil War as seen through the lives of two families divided by the conflict, the Stonemans and the Camerons. The novel on which Griffith based his film was dedicated to the Grand Titan of the Ku Klux Klan and was essentially racist propaganda. When Birth of A Nation was released, the extreme racial bias of many of the sequences in the film provoked race riots in New York and Boston, as well as protests by the NAACP, the president of Harvard University, and many liberal newspapers. The film was banned in France until 1921 when it was finally shown in a censored version missing many of the most offensive scenes. Birth of A Nation had an enormous impact on the development of filmmaking in the United States, both in terms of technical innovations and as a financial model. Its production cost was $100,000, and yet it brought in over 15 million in box office receipts. The film's financial success helped to give rise to the new Hollywood and Hollywood's eventual domination of both the American and international markets

They drive by night by Raoul Walsh( Visual )

34 editions published between 1940 and 2017 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"George Raft and Humphrey Bogart share a driving ambition in They Drive by Night, a feisty tale of brothers trying to make it as independent truckers. Ann Sheridan plays a truck-stop waitress dishing both the daily special and the patter. And Ida Lupino is a headstrong executive mixing business and romance with murder. With Bogart again riding shotgun en route to leading-man stardom (which he would achieve the following year) and Raft at the wheel in one of his best roles, this fine example of Warner Bros. social-conscience filmmaking (directed by Raoul Walsh) proved a sturdy vehicle for both. It proved even more fortuitous for Lupino : her courtroom breakdown made her an "overnight" sensation that landed her a studio contract." -- Case
Captain Horatio Hornblower by Raoul Walsh( Visual )

13 editions published between 1951 and 2007 in English and Dutch and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In one of his favorite roles, screen legend Gregory Peck plays the valiant Napoleonic Era naval hero in this swashbuckling saga adapted for the screen by Hornblower's creator C.S. Forester. True to the famed source novels, Hornblower outthinks his rivals to outfight them. He's unflinching under fire, modest in victory -- and more than a little at sea romantically with Lady Barbara Wellesley (Virginia Mayo). Director Raoul Walsh (White Heat, High Sierra) guides the broadside for broadside action with flourishes befitting sea warfare's most exciting era. Two fully rigged and three nearly complete ships -- from a 38 gun frigate to a 100 gun command ship -- are used in the film. Fire when ready, mates! - Container
