Judah Ben-Hur is a young Jewish nobleman from a prominent family who is reunited with his childhood friend Messala. Messala returns to Judea as a Roman tribune. There is a genuine friendship between the two men, yet the clash of their cultures drives a wedge between them. That wedge finally drives Messala to banish Judah to the slave galleys and sends his mother and his sister to prison. From that point forward, Judah's life becomes a quest: a quest to survive and a quest for vengeance. Judah survives the galleys to become the adopted son of a Roman general, and his triumphant return to Judea permits him to challenge and subsequently confront Messala in a chariot race

Bird of paradise by Joel McCrea ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1932 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This implausibly exotic South Seas romance between an American interloper and a doomed native princess pares down thematically to a collision between sexuality and civilisation not unlike a sort of anti-puritan Western with island natives substituted for Indians. Vidor and Selznick were to come together again to depict racially crossed love ending with delirious death in Duel in the Sun (1946)

1 edition published in 1945 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"When two geologists vanish while exploring a huge swamp alleged to contain the gold of pirate Henry Morgan, officials of the United Oil Company, for which the missing men worked, send for Smith, a private detective from Brooklyn. Smith arrives on the tiny Caribbean island and meets Governor Gerald McCracken, Sr.; his secretary, Felix Ikert; police commissioner Col. Lane; coroner and town physician Rene Marcel and police lieutenant Bowman Hall. Lane and Hall are infuriated by the oil company's hiring of the wise-cracking, seemingly incompetent Smith, but Smith proposes that the scientists, as well as the other six people who have disappeared, could not have been merely lost in the swamp or killed by alligators, as Lane maintains. Smith substantiates his theory by showing the men the bullet hole in his hat, made when someone shot at him while he was wandering through the outskirts of the swamp. He also tells the officials that his associate, Carroll Gates, has been on the island conducting an undercover investigation. When Smith goes to Gates's hotel room, however, he discovers that his partner has been murdered. Mrs. Jean Gilbert, the hotel hostess, shows Smith into the adjoining room, and the ex-policeman begins his investigation in earnest. Later that night, Smith is almost hit by a knife thrown by an unseen assailant, but quickly jokes away his nervousness. He is then visited by Jean, who reveals that she and Gates had become friends during his stay. Gates believed that the disappearances were deliberate murders and gave Jean a map of the swamp to pass on to Smith if something happened to him. After their talk, Jean is murdered with the same dagger that was thrown at Smith, and because the weapon had been hanging on McCracken's wall, Smith becomes suspicious of one of the men who was present at his initial interview with the governor. The men laugh at Smith's assumption that pirate treasure is the motive behind the killings, and Lane vows to reveal the murderer at his house at ten o'clock that night. When the group arrives at the Lane home, however, they find that the police commissioner and his daughter Linda have been abducted. McCracken's son, Gerald, Jr., who is in love with Linda, accompanies Smith into the swamp, where he believes the Lanes were taken. The pair wander for two days until Smith fires his pistol in the belief that whoever committed the murders will take them to the island in the middle of the morass. They are found and taken to former rum runner Captain Van den Bark, who, along with the secret leader of the gang, is extracting pirate gold from the swamp and smuggling it to the United States. Van den Bark orders his righthand man, Hartshorn, to kill Smith and Gerald, but they succeed in wounding him and escaping. While Van den Bark and his other men load up the gold and prepare to leave the island, Smith and Gerald find Lane and Linda, who have not been harmed. Smith then captures Van den Bark, but as they board a boat to leave, Lane shoots him and states that he was trying to escape. Frustrated that Lane has killed his only witness, Smith claims that Van den Bark is only wounded, and then concocts an elaborate scheme back in town, where Dr. Praskins of the local hospital pretends to operate on the 'injured' man. Knowing that the ringleader will try to kill Van den Bark, Smith lies in wait and soon captures Dr. Marcel. Marcel confesses that he was smuggling the gold out in coffins and committed the murders to protect his operation. Later, with the case wrapped up, Smith enjoys a game of darts with Linda and Gerald"--AFI catalog, 1941-1950

Tarzan and his mate by Cedric Gibbons ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1934 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The second Tarzan film starring Johnny Weissmuller who succeeded Elmo Lincoln (the 'silent' Tarzan) as the King of the Apes finds him settled with the Englishwoman Jane in their jungle domain until disturbed by two white hunters from Mayfair (one a former beau of Jane's) in search of ivory. The thirties MGM series, of which Tarzan and His Mate is widely considered to be the best, had above average production values (set designer Cedric Gibbons is credited here as co-director) with well staged action in the studio jungle. Pre-dating the stiffening of the industry censorship code in the thirties, Tarzan and His Mate is considerably less coy about sexuality than the later entrants in the series
