The best Arbuckle/Keaton collection( Visual )

A rising star who rose from bit player to writer, director, and star of comedies for Mack Sennett's Keystone Film Company, Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle recruited up-and-coming vaudeville comic Buster Keaton for a series of films from 1917 through 1919. Presented chronologically, these shorts demonstrate Keaton's evolution from bit player to full partner as both men honed their comedic skills. Following the 1921 scandal that was inflamed by a publicity-seeking prosecutor and the tabloid press, Arbuckle's films were withdrawn from circulation in America. The films in this collection were gathered from international archives and private collections, with new English intertitles and digitally mastered from 35mm, some directly from the nitrate originals. Shorts: The Butcher Boy, The Rough House, His Wedding Night, Oh Doctor!, Coney Island, Out West, The Bell Boy, Moonshine (fragment), Good Night, Nurse, Back Stage, The Hayseed, The Garage

Spuren der Verirrten : eine Oper( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in German and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The opera starts with an empty stage and the surprising character of The Spectator who imagines and introduces entrances and exits of couples and groups of people walking along with their quarrels and hopes, aims and fears, conflicts, obsessions and longings for happiness. Scene by scene the number of people on stage grows. They end up in a kind of "mass migration" which has to cope with questions of leadership, war and helplessness. Some of them seem to be taken from a street around the corner, some of them are mysterious, several are obviously connected with ancient myths and fairy tales. Everybody is looking for a chance to survive and to find a place to live in peace-- but something is missing: communication becomes difficult, the fellow man, the opposite partner is vanishing and time is dissolving..."--http://www.philipglass.com/music/compositions/SpurenDerVerirrten.php
