The 300 Spartans by Rudolph Maté( visu )

It's Spartan King Leonidis versus Persian king Xerxes, locked in a legendary battle pitting 300 brave Spartans against a Persian force twenty times that size. At stake: the course of Western civilisation as we know it! The 300 Spartans is an account of the 480 B.C. Battle of Thermopylae, in which the Spartan King Leonidis, played by Richard Egan, led a remarkably small number of men to victory over an invading Persian army led by evil King Xerxes that was about 20 times as large. This spectacular conflict gave the Grecians enough time to organize a force to ultimately repel the Persians, and thus changing the course of Western civilisation

Vampyr by Carl Theodor Dreyer( visu )
23 editions published between 1930 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 652 libraries worldwide
The religious rather than the sexual overtones in the vampire myth are emphasised in this adaptation of a story of young women threatened by a long buried female vampire and her living agents. Although its plot offers an apparently conventional opposition of good and evil central to the classic horror film, 'Vampyr' ultimately escapes easy generic classification. In the construction of the subjectivity of David Gray it captures some of the elusiveness of dreams and challenges the spectator's perception, blurring the distinction between hallucination and reality, as, through images of diffused light and shadow, the conventions of space, time and logic appear to be denied
