City lights : a comedy romance in pantomime by Charlie Chaplin( visu )
6 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and No Linguistic Content and held by 1,078 libraries worldwide
"Lichter der Grossstadt" beginnt mit einer brüllend komischen Persiflage pompöser Förmlichkeiten und endet in einer der berühmtesten Schlusseinstellungen der Filmgeschichte. Er geht uns von Anfang bis zum Schluss derart ans Herz und erschüttert unser Zwerchfell, dass er 1998 vom American Institute in die Liste der 100 Besten amerikanischen Filme aufgenommen wurde. Der Tonfilm hatte sich bereits durchgesetzt, als sich Charles Chaplin hartnäckig gegen die neue Art des Filmemachens stemmte und diesen unsterblichen Klassiker ohne Dialog drehte - auf der Tonspur sind nur Musik und Geräusche zu hören. Die Geschichte zeigt die Versuche des Tramps, Geld für eine Operation zu verdienen, durch die ein blindes Blumenmädchen das Augenlicht wieder erlangen soll. Dadurch schafft sich der Star einen idealen Rahmen für Gags und grosse Gefühle. Der Tramp jobbt abwechselnd als Strassenkehrer und Boxer, er gibt sich als reicher Mann aus und bewahrt einen Millionär vor dem Selbstmord. Die Botschaft des Films wird zwar nicht ausgesprochen, aber dennoch in aller Welt verstanden: Liebe macht blind. (Quelle: Umschlag)

From Peep Show to Palace recounts the enchanting early years of film, beginning with the primitive motion of the "magic lantern" in the fifteenth century and continuing, most significantly, with the explosion of research from 1893 to 1913, when the modern motion picture was born. Respected film critic David Robinson offers this vivid account of the haphazard process, "like the assembly of the pieces of a puzzle," which was the birth of American film

A nous la liberté by René Clair( visu )
1 edition published in 2002 in French and held by 541 libraries worldwide
"Synopsis: One of the all-time comedy classics, René Clair's A nous la liberté tells the story of Louis, an escaped convict who becomes a wealthy industrialist. Unfortunately, his past returns (in the form of old jail pal Emile) to upset his carefully laid plans. Featuring lighthearted wit, tremendous visual innovation, and masterful manipulation of sound, A nous la liberté is both a potent indictment of mechanized modern society and an uproarious comic delight."--Website
