2 editions published between 1961 and 2002 in English and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An irresponsible, neurotic child spreads a slanderous rumour about a lesbian relationship between the two headmistresses of an exclusive private girls' school. Wyler and executive producer Walter Mirisch decided to return to Hellman's play that had been the basis of the 1936 production, These Three, also directed by Wyler. This time they intended to remain faithful to the play to an extent that had not been possible in the earlier film. However, The Children's Hour was attacked by critics for being too faithful to what they saw as the dated original (a criticism with which Hellman herself apparently concurred). What stands up today is Hepburn's understated playing and MacLaine's committment to the role of a possessive lesbian. This was the first major Hollywood production to deal with lesbianism although the word is never actually spoken

In one of the most eclectic films of the German silent era, visual stylist F.W. Murnau broke away from the dark, foreboding dramas for which he was known to explore the realm of light comedy. Working from a screenplay by Thea von Harbou, Murnau crafted a playful espionage thriller reminiscent of Ernst Lubitsch (who had recently left Germany for Hollywood). Harry Liedtke stars as a 'benevolent dictator' who must preserve the tiny nation of Abacco by fending off creditors, wooing a wealthy Russian princess (Mady Christians) and evading a band of demonic conspirators (including Nosferatu himself, Max Schreck)
