Building the Titanic has been a huge financial effort, and White Star Line president Bruce Ismay wants her maiden voyage to hit the headlines. It is at Ismay's urging that Capt. Edward J. Smith pushes for a record speed in their voyage to New York, and that eventually sows the seeds for later disaster. This Titanic features a number of rich, decadent British passengers and a handful of noble German peasants. Ends with the court tribunal acquitting Ismay of any wrong-doing for the sinking of the great ship
Das Testament des Dr. Mabuse by Fritz Lang( Visual )

29 editions published between 1933 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Locked away in an asylum for a decade and teetering between life and death, the criminal mastermind Doctor Mabuse (Rudolf Klein-Rogge) has scribbled his last will and testament: a manifesto establishing a future empire of crime. When the document's nefarious writings start leading to terrifying parallels in reality, it's up to Berlin's star detective, Inspector Lohmann (Otto Wernicke, reprising his role from M) to connect the most fragmented, maddening clues in a case unlike any other. A sequel to his enormously successful silent film Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler, Fritz Lang's The Testament of Dr. Mabuse reunites the director with the character that had effectively launched his career. Lang put slogans and ideas expounded by the Nazis into the mouth of a madman, warning his audience of an imminent menace, which was soon to become a reality. Nazi Minister of Information Joseph Goebbels saw the film as an instruction manual for terrorist action against the government and banned it for "endangering public order and security". A landmark of mystery and suspense for countless espionage and noir thrillers to come, this is the complete, uncut original director's version in a stunning new transfer
Kolberg by Veit Harlan( Visual )

3 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in German and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"... re-create the true story of a Prussian town's rebellion against Napoleon's army of occupation. Laced with anti-Christian symbolism and National Socialist ideology, the film is a mirror of Hitler Germany's own war for survival. In its characterization of Kolberg's besieged citizenry, the epic allegorically reflects the spirit of fanatical resolve to fight on, that Nazi propaganda was attempting to instill in the German population during the final years of World War II"--Container
Lang ist der Weg( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in Yiddish and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A forgotten classic and a film of passionate restraint, made by and about Jewish Displaced Persons. Produced in the American zone of occupied Germany in the aftermath of World War II, this first feature film to represent the Holocaust from a Jewish point of view has the power of a collective self-portrait. The young hero is deported in the liquidation of the Warsaw Ghetto, jumps an Auschwitz-bound transport to take his chances in the countryside, and ultimately survives the war with a band of Jewish partisans to search for his family in the ruins of liberated Poland

M : a film by Thea von Harbou( Book )

3 editions published between 1931 and 2011 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Berlin 1931 - eine Stadt in Angst und Schrecken: Ein psychopathischer Kindermörder geht um, der von der Polizei nicht zu fassen ist. Aufgeheizt durch die allgemeine Hysterie intensiviert die Polizei ihre Bemühungen, ihn zu schnappen. Dabei dringt sie immer weiter in das Terrain der Berliner Unterwelt vor und macht deren Geschäfte fast unmöglich. Da der Mörder die gesamte Unterwelt in Verruf bringt, beschließen die Gangster, um sich die Polizei vom Leib zu halten, sich ebenfalls auf die Jagd nach dem Täter zu machen... Ein legendärer Klassiker der Filmgeschichte, von Fritz Lang inszeniert. Lang ließ sich durch eine Mordserie während der 20er Jahre zum diesem Film - sein erster Tonfilm überhaupt - inspirieren. Die herausragende filmhistorische Bedeutung, die "M" zu recht genießt, ließe sich allein schon anhand der ästhetischen Gestaltung dieses Films aufweisen. Die von Fritz Lang an dem für ihn völlig neuen Medium Tonfilm durchgeführten Experimente gelten heute wie damals als "Beispiel für eine vorbildliche Bewältigung des Mediums Ton". Die konzeptuelle Idee dieses Films war durch aktuelle Zeitungsmeldungen entstanden, die über die Fälle der Serienmörder Haarmann und Kürten berichteten. Dem zeitgenössischen Trend zur "Neuen Sachlichkeit" folgend, wollte Lang einen Film realisieren, der rein auf Tatsachenberichten aufbauen sollte. [...]
