The Oscar Wilde collection by Oscar Wilde ( Visual )
3 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An ideal husband: "Set during the London season of 1895, An ideal Husband is a dazzling blend of farce and morality that explores human frailty and social hypocrisy. Sir Robert Chilton's secret is discovered and exposed. He is accused of having exploited government secrets for his own gain early in his political career. With this revelation from Mrs. Cheveley comes the threat of blackmail and the ruin of Sir Robert's career. Yet in order to be a successful blackmailer, one's own reputation must be beyond reproach." Lady Windermere's Fan: "Centering around the arrival of a mysterious woman hoping to break into London's society, Lady Windermere's Fan was Wilde's first great stage success. Lady Windermere learns from a friend that Lord Windermere is spending a great deal of time with a Mrs. Erlynne, and fearing that he is being unfaithful to her, she decides that their marriage is at an end. Then, in an act of striking generosity, Mrs. Erlynne protects Lady Windermere's reputation and truths about trust and loyalty are ironically revealed."
Sink the Bismarck! by Lewis Gilbert ( Visual )

The Bismarck was the fabled German battleship of World War II. Traces the "life" of the Bismarck from its launching (courtesy of newsreel footage) through its many battles and narrow escapes, concluding with its far-from-inevitable sinking in the Spring of 1941. The story concentrates on the human element, specifically a British intelligence captain, who has lost his family in the London blitz and thus has a personal reason for seeing the Bismarck blasted from the sea. The captain's tireless efforts are abetted by the love and support of a female naval officer
