El Cid by Anthony Mann( Visual )

23 editions published between 1961 and 2009 in 6 languages and held by 834 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eleventh-century Spain is divided into Christian kingdoms and Moorish strongholds. The young Rodrigo Diaz de Bivar, who has been dubbed El Cid by his followers, vows to see his country at peace, free from the invader. Showing clemency to some emirs, he faces treason charges at court. His accuser, Gomez, father of his fiancee, Chimene, dies in the resulting duel. Chimene's avowed vengeance plot fails and Rodrigo is given her hand. When King Ferdinand dies, his kingdom is divided among his three children. Sancho challenges the decision and imprisons Alfonso, who is released by El Cid. Then Sancho is assassinated by an African war-lord. Alfonso now claims that throne, too, and exiles El Cid. Chimene realizes the nobility of her husband and joins him. The years pass and El Cid becomes a revered warrior, but refuses to aid Alfonso. He lays siege to Valencia, catapulting food into its starving garrison. The Valencians kill their evil ruler and offer the crown to El Cid. He sends it to Alfonso, who rushes to his side. But El Cid has been hit by a stray arrow. Attended by Chimene, he hides the wound from his men and prepares a final bid to drive the Moors from Spain

Der dritte Mann The third man( Visual )

4 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in German and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Atmosphärisch überaus dichte Verfilmung des gleichnamigen Kriminalromans von Graham Greene, von dem auch das Drehbuch stammt. Carol Reed nutzte die Expressivität des zerbombten Wiens, um eine düstere Grundstimmung zu schaffen, in der sich Joseph Cotton und Orson Welles als ehemalige Freunde gegenüberstehen (wobei letzterer erst in der zweiten Hälfte des Films in Erscheinung tritt). Neben der spektakulären Kameraführung trug auch die berühmt gewordene Zither-Musik Anton Karas' dazu bei, daß "Der Dritte Mann" zu einem Klassiker wurde. []
