Robin Hood by Allan Dwan ( Visual )
5 editions published between 1922 and 2009 in English and German and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A big-screen spectacle that ranks as one of the monumental accomplishments of the era, 'Robin Hood' is a timeless story of romance and intrigue, staged on a herculean scale. Its sets were erected by an army of 500 carpenters and towered 90 feet in the air, covering ten acres of land, historically accurate to the smallest detail. Robin Hood recreates 'the chivalry of England in all its glory' as it unveils the conflicts and betrayals that threaten to destroy the kingdom of Richard the Lion-Hearted (Wallace Beery). As the Earl of Huntington, Fairbanks epitomizes the valiant, loyal knight immortalized in Arthurian legend, gently wooing the virtuous lady Marian (Enid Bennett). When King Richard, Huntington and a band of warriors embark on a crusade to Palestine, Richard's conniving brother John (Sam De Grasse) assumes the throne and turns the once-idyllic empire into a Dante-esque sty of corruption. In the darkest hour, Huntington shirks off his noble demeanor and is transformed into Robin Hood, a hyper-animated avenger who, just a few leaps ahead of his merry men, breathlessly storms the battlements in pursuit of Prince John, the High Sheriff of Nottingham (William Lowery) and all who stand in the way of justice
All quiet on the western front by Lewis Milestone ( Visual )
9 editions published between 1930 and 2012 in English and French and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
At the outset of World War I a group of German schoolboys, fired by patriotism, enlist for the Fatherland but are ill-prepared for the realities of trench warfare. Milestone sought to convey Remarque's pacifist message through a mixture of stylisation and naturalism. The poetic dialogue combines humour and sentimentality. The much-praised sense of reality in the recreation of trench warfare was achieved through unusually precise pre-planning and the harnessing of camera movement to swift cutting
Sergeant York by Howard Hawks ( Visual )
2 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
