The life of Emile Zola ( Visual )
9 editions published between 1937 and 2007 in English and French and held by 1,101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1862 Paris, Emile Zola is barely scratching out a living writing muckraking articles about the poverty of the French people and the corruption of their leaders. Until "Nana," about the life of a prostitute, becomes a smash hit and turns Zola into a celebrity, champion of the people. As he churns out a string of similar books that make him quite rich, his old friend Paul Cezanne tells him "An artist should remain poor." His determined intervention in the Dreyfus Affair, at the request of Dreyfus's wife Lucie, results in "J'accuse!" his famous denunciation of the Army, and leads to a conviction for libel. He flees to England, where he remains until granted amnesty. Unfortunately, he dies before the news that Dreyfus was exonerated and reinstated to full rank can reach him. Indicative of the mores of its time, during the course of this clear story about institutionalized anti-Semitism, the word "Jew" is never mentioned. And while most Hollywood biographies must be taken with a grain--if not a handful--of salt, the film makes a reasonable effort at accuracy and completeness
Orphans of the storm by D. W Griffith ( Visual )

"The film tells the tale of two sisters, Henriette (Lillian Gish) and her blind sister, Louise (Dorothy Gish) who become separated when they travel to Paris in search of a surgeon who may be able to help Louise regain her sight. While Louise falls into the hands of a poor beggar family, an immoral aristocrat captures Henriette. As the political climate begins to boil, the two disconnected sisters eventually find themselves caught up in the whirlwind of political emotion and revolution, eventually coming together in a nail-biting scene at the guillotine itself"--Container
