Love on the Dole - Dual Format (Includes DVD)
18,49 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

Originally banned by the British Board of Film Censors for being a ‘very sordid story in very sordid surroundings’, Love on the Dole, was made in 1941 at a time when social conditions had been radically changed by the Second World War. Set in 1930s Salford, at the height of the Great Depression, young Harry Hardcastle (Geoffrey Hibbert, In Which We Serve) and his sister Sally (Deborah Kerr, The King and I) fall victim to poverty and unemployment, meaning they need to make difficult decisions to survive. Although the film deals with the Depression, mass unemployment, poverty and riots, the film retains positivity by reinforcing the view that Britain and its working classes had survived incredible hardships and would conquer anything which faced them. Peppered with references to a new start and a better future, where “everybody lends a hand” the film is optimistic in its nod to the liberal democracy Britain had retained despite the war. Adapted from the novel of the same name by Walter Greenwood the film was much-praised by critics upon its release.

It Can't Happen Here
8,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

"The novel that foreshadowed Donald Trump's authoritarian appeal."-Salon It Can't Happen Here is the only one of Sinclair Lewis's later novels to match the power of Main Street, Babbitt, and Arrowsmith. A cautionary tale about the fragility of democracy, it is an alarming, eerily timeless look at how fascism could take hold in America. Written during the Great Depression, when the country was largely oblivious to Hitler's aggression, it juxtaposes sharp political satire with the chillingly realistic rise of a president who becomes a dictator to save the nation from welfare cheats, sex, crime, and a liberal press. Called "a message to thinking Americans" by the Springfield Republican when it was published in 1935, It Can't Happen Here is a shockingly prescient novel that remains as fresh and contemporary as today's news. With an Introduction by Michael Meyer and an Afterword by Gary Scharnhorst

The Possessed , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 1757min
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Loosely based on sensational press reports of a Moscow student’s murder by fellow revolutionists, The Possessed depicts the destructive chaos caused by outside agitators who move into a provincial town. The enigmatic Stavrogin dominates the novel. His magnetic personality influences his tutor, the liberal intellectual poseur Stepan Verhovensky, and the teacher’s revolutionary son Pyotr, as well as other radicals. Stavrogin is portrayed as a man of strength without direction, capable of goodness and nobility. When Stavrogin loses his faith in God, however, he is seized by brutal desires he does not fully understand. Widely considered the greatest political novel ever written, The Possessed showcases Dostoevsky’s brilliant characterization, amazing insight into the human heart, and crushing criticism of the desire to manipulate the thought and behavior of others. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Patrick Cullen. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/blak/003409/bk_blak_003409_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
