3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Vienna-born, New York-raised Josef von Sternberg directed some of the most influential, stylish dramas ever to come out of Hollywood. Though best known for his star-making collaborations with Marlene Dietrich, von Sternberg began his career during the final years of the silent era, dazzling audiences and critics with his film's dark visions and innovative cinematography. The titles in this collection, made on the cusp of the sound age, are three of von Sternberg's greatest works, gritty evocations of gangster life (Underworld), the Russian Revolution (The Last Command), and working-class desperation (The Docks of New York) made into shadowy movie spectacle. Criterion is proud to present these long unavailable classics of American cinema, each with two musical scores."--Container

The best of British war cinema ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This set, crackling with suspense and drama, includes ten of the most prominent examples of British filmmaking. Appointment with Venus: at the outbreak of WWII the British realize they can't prevent the invasion of the Channel Islands. However, someone realizes that a prize cow, Venus, is on the islands and the Nazis mustn't get hold of her. The wind cannot read: Love that was forbidden ... but could not be denied! Operation Amsterdam: during WWII, British commandos visit occupied Holland to keep a fortune in diamonds out of Nazi hands. Theirs is the glory: in 1944, British General Montgomery and his command were way north of the Allied line, and the Germans were holding them in that swampy position. The plan, put into operation on Sunday, September 14, 1944, was to drop two American Airborne divisions and the British First Airborne Division behind the German lines to capture the bridges which would open the way to the German plain. The day will dawn: horse race tipster and journalist Metcalf is picked for the job of foreign correspondent in Norway when Hitler invades Poland. Seven thunders: escaping British prisoners of war hide out in German occupied France. Unpublished story: journalists investigate German fifth columnists as London burns in the blitz. Two thousand women: a group of English women caught in France during World War II and interned in a posh hotel. Secret mission: four British intelligence agents infiltrate the heart of occupied France in this clever World War II cloak-and-dagger thriller. The Flemish farm: wartime commando story based on fact. Allied airman risks return (on the ground) to occupied France for the honor of his regiment

Unterwelt ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1926 and 1927 in German and Undetermined and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ein berüchtigter, wegen Mordes zum Tode verurteilter Gangster bricht aus dem Gefängnis aus, um seine schöne Geliebte der vermeintlichen Untreue zu überführen. Doch die Frau und der heruntergekommene Rechtsanwalt, der sich einst der Gangsterbande anschloß, können ihn von ihrer Loyalität überzeugen. Daraufhin läßt er sich von der Polizei abführen. Früher Gangsterfilm mit melodramatischen Akzenten, in dem erstmals ein Gangster als Ausgestoßener und Verlierer dargestellt wird. Weniger an Härte und Brutalität interessiert als an der Vermittlung von Gefühlen und der Angst vor Vereinsamung, wodurch er auch heute noch äußerst differenziert und fast "modern" wirkt. (Lex. d. I. Films)
