From the shtetl to the stage : the odyssey of a wandering actor by Alexander Granach( )

7 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alexander Granach, who died while he was acting on Broadway in 1945, brilliantly relates the remarkable story of his unlikely path from a poverty-stricken, rough-and-tumble childhood to success on the German stage. This is the account of a daring, curiosity-filled, and perceptive Jewish child from poor towns in Galicia who was seized with a passion for the theater when he saw his first show at the age of 14. He overcame great odds to become a leading stage and film actor in Weimar Germany - and he had to have both legs broken to do it! Born in what is now southern Ukraine, Granach began working at the age of six in his father's bakery, where his heavy tasks left him visibly knock-kneed. With very little formal education but open for adventure and willing to work hard, Alexander ran away several times, the last time to Berlin, at the age of 16, where his talent and charm won him a place in Max Reinhardt's theater school. His career was abruptly interrupted by World War I and his time as a prisoner of war in Italy, but after a daring escape and the end of the war he resumed his rise to prominence in German artistic life. A natural storyteller, Granach's autobiography captures equally the charms, adventures, and trials of his shtetl days, the horrors of trench warfare, and the glamour and excitement of the German theater before Hitler came to power."--Provided by publisher
Nosferatu : a symphony of horror( Visual )

5 editions published in 2007 in German and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rather than depict Dracula as a shape-shifting monster or debonair gentleman, Murnau's Graf Orlok is a nightmarish, spidery creature with a bulbous head and taloned claws. The present restoration was performed during 2005-06 by Luciano Berriatua for the Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau Stiftung. It is based on a nitrate element from 1922 that has French intertitles and the original color tints. Missing shots were supplemented from a 1939 preservation copy from the Budnesarchiv-Filmarchiv

7 editions published between 1990 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"German expressionist cinema was at its height in the 1920s, and few films embodied the movement as much as Warning Shadows ... a mysterious traveler and illusionist who performs shadow puppetry arrives to provide some entertainment at an otherwise routine dinner party. The host of the party is already mad with jealousy over the presence of his wife's four suitors, but when the puppet show begins, passions overtake reason and reality is not what it appears to be. Shadows, reflections and silhouettes are the dominant imagery ... "--Container notes
Nosferatu : eine Symphonie des Grauens by F. W Murnau( Visual )

13 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An estate agent's clerk (von Wangenheim) leaves his bride (Schroeder) in the city of Bremen to conduct business in the distant Carpathian mountains, with an eccentric client named Graf Orlok (Schreck). However, the closer he gets to his destination, the more terrified become the people he meets. What he finds at Orlok's sinister castle is more horrifying than he could possibly have imagined ... This was the very first film to be based on Bram Stoker's now infamous novel "Dracula". Names and locations were changed but Stoker's estate, who had not given permission for the novel to be filmed, recognised the obvious and alarming similarities and sued the producers. An English judge ordered all copies of the film to be destroyed and the original negative burned. Fortunately for us, prints survived in Germany
