Die Büchse der Pandora : Variationen auf das Thema Frank Wedekinds Lulu = Pandora's box : variations on the theme of Frank Wedekind's Lulu by G. W Pabst( Visual )

22 editions published between 1928 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 994 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
Das Testament des Dr. Mabuse by Fritz Lang( Visual )

17 editions published between 1932 and 2016 in German and held by 576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Locked away in an asylum for a decade and teetering between life and death, the criminal mastermind Dr. Mabuse 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, to connect the fragmented, maddening clues in a case unlike any other. The Testament of Dr. Mabuse appropriates slogans and ideas from the newly ascendant Nazi party and puts them into the mouth of a madman, warning the audience of the horrible menace that was rapidly becoming a reality

12 editions published between 1931 and 2015 in German and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sly melodies of composer Kurt Weill and the daring of dramatist Bertolt Brecht come together on-screen under the direction of German auteur G.W. Pabst (Pandora's Box) in this classic adaptation of the Weimar-era theatrical sensation. Set in the impoverished back alleys of Victorian London, The Threepenny Opera follows underworld antihero Mackie Messer (a.k.a.

With its palpable evocation of corruption and dread, set to Weill's irresistible score, The Threepenny Opera remains a benchmark of early sound cinema

1 edition published in 1998 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
