"The legendary Bette Davis stars as Mrs. Taggart, a venomous one-eyed matriarch who -- despite her husband being long dead -- demands her three grown sons gather for her 40th anniversary. Eldest Henry is a mild-mannered cross-dresser; middle child Terry is a henpecked weakling; and carefree youngest son Thomas arrives with his pregnant fiancée. But this bumpy night has only just begun, as family secrets will be revealed, cruel insults hurled, and frilly underwear stolen. Even if the siblings can survive the festivities unscathed, does the biggest mother of them all have a shocking final surprise for everyone?"--Container
The mind of Mr. Soames ( visu )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 15 libraries worldwide
"This fascinating sci-fi thriller prefigures the rise of reality television and modern day questions of medical ethics, as the progress of a recently awakened coma victim is nationally televised. John Soames (Terence Stamp) has been surgically awakened by the neurosurgeon Michael Bergen (Robert Vaughn), and then goes through a rigorous training program to cram thirty years of education and experience into a few weeks' time. Will this experiment prove successful or will Soames' accelerated education neglect the essentials of true maturity?"--Container

Un maestro novato se enfrenta a una clase de rudos e indisciplinados punks en esta clásica película que refleja algunos de los problemas y miedos de los adolescentes en los años '60s. Sidney Poitier nos brinda una de sus mejores actuaciones como Mark Thackeray, un ingeniero sin trabajo que se convierte en maestro en el Este de Londres. La clase por graduarse, lidereada por Denham (Christian Roberts), Pamela (Judy Geeson) y Barbara (Lulu, quien también cánta el hit del título de la película), se proponen destruir a Thackeray de la misma manera en la que lo hicieron con el anterior maestro rompiendo su espíritu. Pero Thackeray, no ajeno a la hostilidad, enfrenta el reto tratando a sus estudiantes como jóvenes adultos que pronto entrarán a formar parte de la fuerza laboral en donde triunfarán o fracasarán por ellos mismos. Cuando le ofrecen un trabajo como ingeniero, Thackeray deberá decidir si quiere quedarse
