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 )

18 editions published between 1933 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1922 Fritz Lang made the two-part film "Dr Mabuse, der Spieler" ("Dr Mabuse, the gambler"). He revived his evil genius in 1933 for this talkie sequel which picks up precisely where the original had ended, with Mabuse's madness, capture and incarceration. Mabuse has been in an asylum for ten years, but his crime organisation is still perpetrating an insane orgy of wanton destruction, threats, shoot-outs, thefts, explosions, bombings, burnings, and floodings
Kolberg by Veit Harlan( Visual )

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

"Mobilized Germany's most talented artists ... to 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 43 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 le maudit by Fritz Lang( Visual )

7 editions published between 1931 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Berlin au début des années 30. Un tueur d'enfants vient de faire une nouvelle victime. La police multiplie alors les rafles dans les bas-fonds. Gênée par toute cette agitation, la pègre décide de retrouver elle-même le criminel... [D'après la jaquette] Inspiré par le vampire de Düsseldorf, une histoire authentique de meurtrier sadique, M, chef-d'œuvre de Lang est, au-delà d'un portrait de psychopathe, une peinture de l'Allemagne du début des années trente en proie à la crise et à la montée du nazisme. Le premier titre de l'œuvre devait être "Les assassins sont parmi nous" mais les nazis firent pression pour qu'il soit modifié. Remarquablement mis en scène, le film est aussi chargé d'émotion, notamment lors des aveux du meurtrier, magistralement campé par un Peter Lorre qui se confondra à tout jamais avec ce rôle. [Jean Tulard - Guide des Films - Ed. Robert Laffont (1997)]
