Imitation of life by Douglas Sirk( Visual )

21 editions published between 1959 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 903 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film "chronicles two widows and their troubled daughters as they struggle to find true happiness amidst racial prejudice. Lora [is] a single white mother whose Hollywood starlet ambitions come at the expense of any meaningful relationship with her daughter, Susie. Lora's black housekeeper, Annie, has troubles of her own as she faces the rejection of her own fair-skinned daughter, Sarah Jane, who abandons her heritage for a chance to be accepted as white. As years of selfishness and denial pass, tragedy strikes and forces the women to come to terms with their own identities."--Container
Jazz on a summer's day by Bert Stern( Visual )

20 editions published between 1959 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Enshrined in the National Film Registry in 1999, Bert Stern's 1959 film offers precisely what its title promises. Along with a wealth of great music, the film subtly conveys the economic differences between the music's origins and Newport's wealthy citizens, and highlights the concentration and playfulness of great musicians by photographing them as intimately as possible. Despite the title, this concert film's performances--captured over the course of a weekend during the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival--really shine when night falls. As a documentary, it stylishly immortalizes transcendently beautiful music played on a glorious day, suggesting in the process that film might have no higher purpose
