Erotikon : a comedy in five acts by Mauritz Stiller( Visual )

in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Erotikon: Labeled an insolent romp in a recent article by The Village Voice and praised for its risqué wit and cheerful amorality in John Wakeman's World Film Directors, Erotikon is quite possibly the cinematic granddaddy of all sophisticated comedies and one of the finest achievements of Swedish director Mauritz Stiller. Erotikon pushed the boundaries of what was acceptable on the screen in 1920: Irene, the bored wife of a distracted entomologist, pursues a womanizing aviator, but she may actually be in love with Preben, her husband's best friend. Meanwhile, her husband seems to be getting unusually close with his own niece. Stiller obviously delights in teasing his audience with each scandalous plot twist and every salacious leer, and the result is a deliciously subversive comedy that was very much ahead of its time.

Körkarlen = The phantom carriage( Visual )

2 editions published in 1921 in Swedish and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The last person to die on New Year's Eve before the clock strikes twelve is doomed to take the reins of death's chariot and work tirelessly collecting fresh souls for the next year. So says the legend that drives the phantom carriage (körkarlen), directed by the father of Swedish cinema, Victor Sjöström. The story, based on a novel by Nobel Prize winner Selma Lagerlöf, concerns an alcoholic, abusive ne'er-do-well (Sjöström himself) who is shown the error of his ways, and the pure-of-heart Salvation Army sister who believes in his redemption. This extraordinarily rich and innovative silent classic (which inspired Ingmar Bergman to make movies) is a Dickensian ghost story and a deeply moving morality tale, as well as a showcase for groundbreaking special effects
