Die 3 groschen oper The 3 penny opera by Kurt Weill( Visual )
5 editions published between 1931 and 1980 in German and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
German film reconstructed in the 1960s, years after the Nazis destroyed the original negative. Combines realism and expressionism for a biting satire of "respectable" society. Set in Victorian London in which both government and underworld are portrayed as amoral and polluted by economic and political chaos. A dashing thief called Mack the Knife gets away with robbery on a daily basis until he marries Polly Peachum, daughter of the king of the beggars. When the outraged king sends a force of crooked cops after Mack, the bandit must run for his life. Favorites from Weill's music score include Moritat, which became the 1957 pop hit Mack the Knife, and Pirate Jenny
Büchse der Pandora Pandora's box by G. W Pabst( Visual )
9 editions published between 1928 and 2006 in 4 languages and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Starring the remarkable American silent film actress Louise Brooks, Pandora's Box is the story of Lulu, a femme fatale, who, after leaving a path of destruction in her wake, is murdered by Jack the Ripper. Banned by Hitler, Pabst's silent melodrama captured the laissez faire sexual mores of Weimar Republic Germany. Prostitution, same sex relationships and murder provide the background for an unforgettable performance by Louise Brooks. The 23 year old Brooks broke her contract with Paramount in order to work with Pabst in Germany and Pabst made two films with her before she returned to the United States. Although her performance in Pandora's Box is now considered to be one of the great silent screen performances, Louise Brooks' acting career ended with the advent of sound, (possibly due to her snub of Paramount). Pabst would go on making films until his health failed in 1956
