The life of Emile Zola ( visu )
7 editions published between 1985 and 2007 in English and French and held by 1,097 libraries worldwide
In 1862 Paris, Emile Zola is barely scratching out a living writing muckraking articles about the poverty of the French people and the corruption of their leaders. Until "Nana," about the life of a prostitute, becomes a smash hit and turns Zola into a celebrity, champion of the people. As he churns out a string of similar books that make him quite rich, his old friend Paul Cezanne tells him "An artist should remain poor." His determined intervention in the Dreyfus Affair, at the request of Dreyfus's wife Lucie, results in "J'accuse!" his famous denunciation of the Army, and leads to a conviction for libel. He flees to England, where he remains until granted amnesty. Unfortunately, he dies before the news that Dreyfus was exonerated and reinstated to full rank can reach him. Indicative of the mores of its time, during the course of this clear story about institutionalized anti-Semitism, the word "Jew" is never mentioned. And while most Hollywood biographies must be taken with a grain--if not a handful--of salt, the film makes a reasonable effort at accuracy and completeness

The fountainhead by Turner Home Entertainment (Firm)( visu )
11 editions published between 1948 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 919 libraries worldwide
This film focuses on a four-cornered conflict of egoism between architect Roark (inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright), a newspaper magnate, his daughter and an opposed, socialistically inclined architecture critic. Vidor's celebration of an ordinary man as one of The Crowd and New Deal collectivism in Our Daily Bread, here gives way to Rand's philosophy of implacable egoism. The combination of Rand's one-dimensionally didactic dialogue, Vidor's engagement with the theme of the spirituality of creativity, his proclivity for soaring love-hate sexuality and an architectural vision in the design, make this a deliriously extreme celebration of individualism in American cinema

James Cagney is Rocky Sullivan, a hoodlum who had always been on the wrong side of the law from an early age and was destined to spend his life in and out of jail. Rocky is effectively contrasted by his boyhood pal Jerry Connolly, who becomes the neighbourhood priest. What gives this 1938 movie its uniqueness is the fact that Cagney's no-good but dashing hoodlum is idolised by the youngsters on the block. Nominated for three Academy Awards, the film comes to a chilling climax with Rocky on death-row facing the electric chair
