The Lord of The Rings : The Fellowship of the Ring [Special Extended VHS edition]

By Tolkien, J.R.R & Jackson, Peter

Toronto: Alliance Atlantis, 2002. The extended VHS edition of the first part of Peter Jackson's movie version of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring ...30 minutes longer than the theatre version....But the changes- ....make for a richer film. There's more of the spirit of J.R.R. Tolkien, embodied in more songs and a longer opening focusing on Hobbiton. There's more character development, and more background into what is to come in the two subsequent films, such as Galadriel's gifts to the Fellowship and Aragorn's burden of lineage. And some additions make more sense to the plot, or are merely worth seeing, such as the wood elves leaving Middle-earth or the view of Caras Galadhon (but sorry, there's still no Tom Bombadil). Brand new two cassete set in original, still sealed,box. . Playing time 200 minutes. First Thus. DVD BOX. New. Video Cassette - VHS.

The Republic of Whores : a Fragment from the Time of the Cults

By Skvorecky, Josef

Toronto: Knopf Canada, 1993. Orignally published in Czech as " Tankovy Prapor"1971 by 68 Publishers.Translated by Paul Wilson, Illustrations by Jan Brychta. "Skvorecky's raucous account of life on a Czech army base brings to mind Catch - 22 and proves that the black humor of enlisted men is nearly universal. Written in 1971, the novel, whose title refers to the state to which the Czechs sank under Soviet occupation, also has an anguished side. Set in the tumultuous 1950s, it details the rebellion of recruits who refuse to attend political indoctrination meetings and are bent on sabotaging their military exercises. Danny Smiricky, who has a Ph.D. in philosophy (and who has served as the author's alter-ego in several novels, including The Engineer of Human Souls ), proves a perfect foil for the microcosm of humanity that has washed up at the base. A tank commander, Smiricky is nearly through with his military service and seems unfazed by the mayhem going on around him. Though Smiricky is no saint--he sleeps with an officer's wife and goes AWOL in order to see his girlfriend in Prague--his behavior seems mild compared to the rambunctious prank-playing of the other recruits. The author pokes fun at everyone--the suspicious, often illiterate enlistees; Czech officers ludicrously bent on aping their Soviet superiors; the Soviet general who arrives to supervise military exercises and proceeds to get drunk--and this hilarious novel should appeal to a readership beyond the usual fans of Czech literature. ". 1st Can Ed. Hardcover. New/As New. Illus. by Jan Brychta.

Dean Spanley : My Talks with Dean Spanley; Dean Spanley the Screenplay

By Plunkett, Edward, Lord Dunsany

London: HarperCollins, 2008. The classic humorous novel about an alcohol-loving clergyman who thinks he is the reincarnation of a Spanley is the very archetype of a bland churchman: affable, conventional, prudent without being a prig. Only his keen interest in the transmigration of souls and almost excessive enthusiasm for dogs betray any shadow of eccentricity. And then, richly primed with a few glasses of Imperial Tokay, he slips over the threshold between past and present and becomes a dog. Or are his canine memories no more than fancy? Surely no mere dean could speak so vividly, with such total conviction, of the joys of hunting, of rolling in fresh dung, of baying the moon? No human could know so much of rabbiting, the importance of buying bones, the contemptibility of pigs. My Talks With Dean Spanley, first published in 1936, is certainly Lord Dunsany's funniest book and, in its unique way, a remarkable tour de force. Now adapted by Alan Sharp into a new comedy-drama feature film ... it follows a father and son as they encounter the eponymous eccentric in this story of reincarnation and reconciliation set in Edwardian England. This special edition includes Lord Dunsany's witty and inventive original novel, as well as Alan Sharp's hilarious screenplay, which faithfully adapts and also expands upon the events in the book... with colour photos and interviews with the principal film-makers. 320p. illus.. First Thus. Hardcover. New/Book Band for Film Edition.
