Mutiny on the Bounty by Frank Lloyd( Visual )

In 1789, the English ship H.M.S. Bounty begins a two-year mission. The ship travels to Tahiti to obtain breadfruit plants that will provide cheap food for slaves in the West Indies, the Bounty's final destination. The captain is William Bligh, a vicious taskmaster who doesn't flinch at giving two dozen lashes to any malcontent on board, for the most minor of infractions. The first mate is Lt. Fletcher Christian, who despises Bligh but has somehow earned the captain's respect. Bligh makes life miserable for the crew, and after the Bounty leaves Tahiti for the West Indies, Bligh orders the ship's doctor, a dying man, to stand on deck despite his illness. The doctor dies, which begins a chain reaction of anger leading to Christian leading a mutiny against Bligh
The postman always rings twice by Tay Garnett( Visual )

32 editions published between 1946 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frank Chambers (John Garfield) is a drifter who lands at a roadside gas station owned by jolly old Nick Smith (Cecil Kellaway) and his young, blonde wife Cora (Lana Turner). In a matter of minutes, Frank and Cora fall in love, and plot to murder Nick. Eventually wedding bells ring, the body count rises, and the gavel slams-of course, nothing ever goes as planned. Part of what makes the film noir is watching the characters react, as their plans are derailed one by one

The red Danube( Visual )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is one of the Red-baiting genre designed to demonstrate Hollywood's political credentials at the height of the Cold War. The representation of life in postwar Vienna sought to expose the duplicity of the Russians in repatriating displaced Soviet subjects specifically here a ballerina on the run from Russian agents. The lampooning of the occupying Allied administration in Vienna, criticised at the time of the film's release, now seems not entirely misplaced in the light of what has subsequently emerged about such repatriations. The effectiveness of the central drama is generally aided by the casting but hampered by a routine romantic sub-plot and wordy exchanges about God and organised religion between an agnostic British Army Colonel and a Mother Superior
