Metropolis by Fritz Lang ( Visual )
43 editions published between 1926 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 2,307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The future. Metropolis is a wonderful city, high above the ground its towers stand. The people prosper, the economy is flourishing, the suspended streets are busy. But Metropolis also has a great secret, so hidden that not even Freder Fredersen, son of founder Joh Fredersen knows about it. He is spending his free time in the Eternal Gardens, when suddenly a woman shows up, with what looks like a class of children. They're from the City of Workers, in the depth, Freder learns. "These are your brothers," she tells the children, before she is forced to leave. Freder is so intrigued he follows them into the depth and doesn't like what he sees. The workers are exploited, they must do labor like robots. Freder tries to convince his father to change, while the woman tries to keep workers' morale high by predicting a man will stand up that will mediate. Someone that will use both hands and head, someone that will be the heart." -- www.imdb.com

Wunder der Schöpfung by Hanns Walter Kornblum ( Visual )
4 editions published in 2009 in German and Multiple languages and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is beautifully colored, using tinting and toning in a very elaborate way. Some visual ideas in the sequences with a space shuttle visiting different planets in the universe seem to have been the inspiration for Stanley Kubrick's 2001: a space odyssey

Das Testament des Dr. Mabuse by Fritz Lang ( Visual )
3 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in German and held by 11 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. Banned by the Nazis, the film is one of Fritz Lang's most inventive crime thrillers

Ludwig II., König von Bayern ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2009 in German and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ludwig II, King of Bavaria, his famous castles and the mysterious circumstances of his death, have inspired a lot of filmmakers throughout the ages. This DVD set contains newly restored versions of the two surviving silent films about Ludwig II. Rolf Raffe's 'Das Schweigen am Starnbergersee' (The Silence at the Starnberg Lake), focuses on the conflict between the King and his family, while Wilhelm Dieterle's 'Ludwig der Zweite' (Ludwig II: King of Bavaria), describes how the King changed in becoming a madman. As a consequence, the film was severely censored and forbidden for screenings in Bavaria. Christian Rischert's documentary 'Im Ozean der Sehnsucht' (In the Ocean of Longing), throws light on the historical background and traces the thoughts of Ludwig II, by visiting his galleries, castles and artificial grottos
