During the Napoleonic Wars, a British frigate, the HMS Surprise, and the larger French warship, Acheron, stalk each other off of the coast of South America. Lucky Jack, as he is referred to by his crew, is well regarded by his men, who trust him implicitly, even after the first devastating battle and an apparent personal vendetta against the French captain. The ship's surgeon balances the violence of his chosen life with the quiet demeanor of the scientist. He is the captain's friend and confidant, the two frequently playing violin and cello duets together

Cobb by Ron Shelton( Visual )

2 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in 1960, "Cobb," is a series of duets between two men. Tyrus Raymond "Ty" Cobb and Al Stump. "The Georgia Peach," while perhaps the greatest baseball player who ever lived, was also a racist, a wife-beater, and probably a killer. Stump was a sportswriter with the job of a lifetime--a biography with full access to the principal. Cobb envisions the book as his way of controlling how history sees him, a piece of self-serving, glorifying hogwash. Stump wants the real story, which Cobb (who's wrangled editorial approval) insists Stump cannot include. Stump writes the book Cobb wants, while secretly making notes for his own unvarnished biography. Stump published his version in 1994, and in keeping with its conclusions, the film dares to voice a truth most people regard as unwelcome: Sometimes greatness has nothing to do with goodness

Former Woody Allen collaborator Douglas McGrath co-wrote, co-directed, and stars in this historical screwball comedy that offers up its own creative suggestion as to what might have spurned 1961's Bay of Pigs invasion. McGrath plays Allen Quimp, a nebbish schoolteacher who? in an attempt to appease his browbeating wife Daisy (Sigourney Weaver)? boasts that he leads a double life as a CIA operative. Daisy immediately sets to work writing a tell-all biography, and as his rumor spreads, Quimp bumbles his way into working at an actual CIA post in Cuba. There, he's confronted by a Cold War vigilante (John Turturro) who enlists his help in taking down the country's communist strongman, Fidel Castro (Anthony LaPaglia). Company Man was co-written and co-directed by New York stage director Peter Askin; both Askin and McGrath sued the film's production company in 1999 when, they claimed, the privilege of editing the final cut was denied to them
Picnic at Hanging Rock( Visual )

Set at the turn of the twentieth century, the film concerns a small group of students from an all-female college and a chaperone, who vanish while on a St. Valentine's Day outing. Less a mystery than a journey into the mystic, as well as an inquiry into issues of class and sexual repression in Australian society

This is an original blend of 'backstage' musical and working class comedy inflected by a popular feminism which displaces masculinity from the centre of Australianess as expressed in the ocker comedy

Zwischen den Entflohenen und ihrem Ziel Indien liegt eine weite, lebensfeindliche Landschaft, die es zu überwinden gilt.

Backroads( Visual )

7 editions published between 1977 and 2014 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This road movie is a mixture of rough naturalism and generic conventions. The journey of a black and a white together with several passengers that are picked up along the way is a journey to nowhere finally given arbitrary direction at the point of a gun. The outback is both abstracted desolation and a real world of black poverty. Inside the car is a more conventionalised representation of black-white relations: the laconic white racist and the angry black rebel who has to pay the price for his rebellion
