55 days at Peking by Nicholas Ray( visu )
9 editions published between 1962 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 15 libraries worldwide
The focus of this maligned epic is on the occupying forces in the foreign compound at Peking, besieged during the summer of 1900 by the Boxer rebels supported by the imperial court keen to liberate itself from western influence. To read the production history as recounted by Ray's biographer Bernard Eisenschitz is to wonder how anything of substance could possibly have emerged from the Bronston organisation. Critics reacted predictably. Andrew Marton finished shooting after Ray's collapse from exhaustion. A recent reappraisal by Ray aficionado, Geoff Andrew, finds something quite substantial - a creditable objectifying of viewpoints between the allies and the Chinese, a balancing of the intimate and the epic, the personal - a cold man of action is redeemed by love - and the political

Die Brücke am Kwai ( visu )
7 editions published between 1957 and 2009 in German and Polish and held by 10 libraries worldwide
Siam im Kriegsjahr 1943: Der japanische Kommandant eines Kriegsgefangenenlagers im Dschungel erhält den Befehl, in kürzester Frist eine strategisch wichtige Eisenbahnbrücke über den Fluß Kwai zu errichten. Ein englisches Gefangenenregiment soll die Arbeit ausführen. Doch die britischen Offiziere, angeführt von Oberst Nicholson, weigern sich unter Berufung auf das Kriegsge- fangenenrecht, körperliche Arbeit zu leisten. Lagerkommandant Saito reagiert mit scharfen Diziplinarterror; zwischen ihm und Nicholson entbrennt ein tagelanger Psychokrieg. Unter zunehmen- dem Termindruck beauftragt Saito die Offiziere schließlich mit der Leitung der Bauarbeiten. Nicholson, von Ehrgeiz und mili- tärischem Pflichteifer gepackt, erbringt Höchstleistungen. Doch als "seine" Brücke endlich steht, pirscht sich ein alliiertes Sprengkommando durch den Dschungel heran ... David Leans Cinemascope-Epos wurde zwiespältig aufgenommen: Während Skeptiker in ihm eine Huldigung unbedingter militärischer Pflichterfüllung sahen, werteten es andere als ironische Kritik an der absurden Sinnlosigkeit eben dieses Gehorsams und Ehrgeizes. Das berühmte Bauwerk - mit 35 Metern Höhe und einer Länge von 130 Metern die größte Brückenkulisse der Filmgeschichte - wurde innerhalb von acht Monaten von 1000 Arbeitern mit Hilfe von 35 Elefanten errichtet
