Citizen Kane by Orson Welles ( Visual )
57 editions published between 1941 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 3,187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The battle over Citizen Kane: Examines the lives of William Randolph Hearst, the powerful newspaper magnate, and director/actor, Orson Welles as they clashed over Welles first film: "Citizen Kane". Hearst's reaction upon learning about the film, which portrayed him unfavorably, was to work to suppress it and destroy Welles. Major movie theater chains refused to show "Citizen Kane", and Welles' masterpiece virtually disappeared for almost 25 years. Never again would Orson Welles gain control of a major Hollywood production
The grapes of wrath by John Ford ( Visual )
13 editions published between 1940 and 2008 in English and French and held by 2,685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
John Ford's "The Grapes of Wrath" is a left-wing parable, directed by a right-wing American director, about how a sharecropper's son, a barroom brawler, is converted into a union organizer. Tom Joad, paroled convict, returns to his family farm in Oklahoma, only to learn the Joads have been "tractored off the land" and are joining the desperate migration to California. The grand Westward movement of American settlement finds small shareholders forced off their land by bankers and big landholders. "The Grapes of Wrath" expresses the nation's rage about the Depression in poetic, Biblical terms, and shows half a nation with the economic rug pulled out from under it. The story--about the resiliency and courage of "the people"--Is built on a foundation of fear: Fear of losing jobs, land, and self-respect. To those who have felt that fear, have gone hungry or been homeless, it will never become dated, while today its sense of injustice is perhaps even more relevant
