The Sea Hawk by Michael Curtiz( Visual )

Captain Geoffrey Thorpe is the terror of the Spanish Main, striking crippling blows against the oppressive Spanish war machine, freeing English slaves from the galley ships and filling England's coffers with Spanish gold--with the tacit approval of England's Queen Elizabeth I. When the dashing Thorpe raids and sinks a diplomatic vessel bringing ambassador Don José Alvarez de Cordoba and his beautiful niece Dona Maria to England, he's gentlemanly enough to deliver them safely onto English shores--along with the galley full of wrongfully imprisoned slaves. Smarting from this insult, Don Alvarez conspires with the duplicitous Lord Wolfingham to stop Thorpe and smash the Sea Hawks: the small fleet of privateers that stands between England and King Philip of Spain's thirst for global domination!

Paris after dark( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This French Underground Melodrama stars George Sanders as a seemingly apolitical Parisian doctor who is actually a resistance leader. Sanders' nurse (Brenda Marshall) is likewise a French patriot -- less so the nurse's husband (Philip Dorn), who has become disillusioned after two years in a POW camp. The husband changes his mind and joins the Resistance, though he and several other freedom fighters lose their lives to German bullets. Worth noting in Paris After Dark is the fact that several of the personnel involved were actual French refugees, including director Leonide Moguy and husband-and-wife supporting actors Marcel Dalio and Madeleine LeBeau. - From Container

Ein amerikanischer Geheimagent trifft im Zug nach Istanbul eine Frau, die ihm einen Briefumschlag mit Geld anvertraut. Als er ihr den Umschlag zurückgeben will, findet er sie ermordet vor. Ein von guten Darstellern getragener und atmosphärisch dichter Spionage-Thriller vor dem Hintergrund des Zweiten Weltkriegs und der Aktivitäten der deutschen Nationalsozialisten, gegen die der Film effektvoll polemisiert. Filmhistorisch reizvoll durch die Beteiligung vieler deutscher Flüchtlinge, die auf Grund ihrer jüdischen Herkunft ihre Heimat verlassen mußten. [film-dienst]
