Becket by Peter Glenville( Visual )
4 editions published between 1964 and 2008 in English and held by 1,537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Despite differences in rank and background, King Henry II and Thomas Becket are lifelong friends. The King is in constant conflict with the Church, which refuses to contribute financing to his wars in France, and jealously guards the tax-free status granted it by previous monarchs. When the Archbishop of Canterbury dies, Henry has a brilliant idea: rather than another pious cleric loyal to Rome, he will appoint his old friend, Thomas Becket--technically a deacon--to the post. Unfortunately, Becket takes the job seriously, holding devotion to God and the Church above his loyalty to the throne, or the person of its inhabitant. In opposition to Henry, he proves abler than his predecessors do, and the clash of two powerful personalities leads to destruction

The elephant man by David Lynch( Visual )
5 editions published between 1980 and 2007 in English and French and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
David Lynch based this film on the life story of Joseph Merrick, a severely deformed Londoner who eked out a living performing in freak shows in Victorian England and on the continent. Merrick was saved from a life as a carnival performer by Dr. Frederick Treves who raised the funds needed to care for Merrick in a London hospital. Merrick's gentle manners and lack of anger at the degrading conditions of his life made him a favorite attraction of the London elite, who found inspiration in Merrick's refined manners and intelligence. In the context of the industrial revolution which in the 1890's was rapidly changing English society, the kind of sad genteelness exhibited by John Merril was an inspiration to a beleagured and out of touch upper class. After having survived a brutal life of exploitation, Merrick's kindness and gratitude were reassuring signs to the London aristocracy, that the most degraded in English society could improve themselves and overcome impossible conditions. A key sequence in the film takes place when Dr. Treves, brings Merrick home to an ordered Victorian drawing room to have tea with Mrs. Treves. Merrick, looking completely out of place, is a most well behaved guest. The pathos of the scene in which Merrick tries to participate in this societal ritual is painful to watch, he wants so much to be part of the Victorian world yet his overwhelming deformity makes it impossible
