From the celebrated film critic and author of The Biographical Dictionary of Film, an original, seductive account of sexuality in the movies and of how actors and actresses on screen have fed our desire.Film can make us want things we cannot have. But, while sometimes rapturous, the interaction of onscreen beauty and private desire speaks to a crisis in American culture, one that pits delusions of male supremacy against feminist awakening and the spirit of gay resistance. Combining criticism, his encyclopedic knowledge of film history, and memoir, David Thomson examines how film has found the fault lines in traditional masculinity and helped to point the way past it toward a more nuanced understanding of what it means to be a person desiring others. Ranging from advertising to pornography, Rudolph Valentino to Moonlight, Rock Hudson to Call Me by Your Name, Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant to Phantom Thread, Thomson shows us the art and the artists we love under a new light. He illuminates the way in which film as art, entertainment, and business has been a polite cover for a kind of erotic séance. And he makes us see how the way we watch our movies is a kind of training for how we try to live. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Thomson.

Jewel thievery, car chases, and romance on the French Riviera. Alfred Hitchcock´s Oscar-winning film To Catch a Thief brought together Hollywood´s two most glamorous stars, Grace Kelly and Cary Grant, in the most glamorous place on Earth, the French Riviera. It is a tale of jewel thievery, intrigue, false identity, covert investigation, and, most of all, romance. Kelly and Grant strike sparks off each other to a backdrop of sophisticated living and glorious scenery. This iconic and much-loved film was based on a novel by the American thriller and travel writer David Dodge. He took his inspiration from real-life events in the South of France, when he was briefly suspected of being a daring cat burglar and lifting jewelery worth $250,000 from the palatial establishment next door to his small rented villa. Once the real thief was behind bars, Dodge wrote at breakneck speed. Alfred Hitchcock snapped up the film rights before publication, visualizing his two favorite stars in the lead roles. Hitchcock worked with his screenwriter, John Michael Hayes, to produce the film script that would take Hollywood´s finest to the South of France. Mr Dodge, Mr Hitchcock, and the French Riviera tells the true story of the events behind the novel and the film To Catch a Thief. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robin Bloodworth.

From one of the most acclaimed and profound writers in the world of comics comes a thrilling and provocative exploration of humankind´s great modern myth: the superhero. The first superhero comic ever published, Action Comics #1 in 1938, introduced the world to something both unprecedented and timeless: Superman, a caped god for the modern age. In a matter of years, the skies of the imaginary world were filled with strange mutants, aliens, and vigilantes: Batman, Wonder Woman, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, and the X-Men - the list of names is as familiar as our own. In less than a century, they´ve gone from not existing at all to being everywhere we look: on our movie and television screens, in our videogames and dreams. But what are they trying to tell us? For Grant Morrison, arguably the greatest of contemporary chroniclers of the superworld, these heroes are powerful archetypes whose ongoing, decades-spanning story arcs reflect and predict the course of human existence: Through them we tell the story of ourselves, our troubled history, and our starry aspirations. In this exhilarating work of a lifetime, Morrison draws on art, science, mythology, and his own astonishing journeys through this shadow universe to provide the first true history of the superhero - why they matter, why they will always be with us, and what they tell us about who we are... and what we may yet become. ´´Grant Morrison is one of the great comics writers of all time. I wish I didn´t have to compete with someone as good as him.´´ —Stan Lee 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Lee. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/003305/bk_adbl_003305_sample.mp3.
