R197 Discovery Miles 1 970 Ships in 20 - 25 working days

Collection of four classic sci-fi films. In 'The Incredible Shrinking Man' (1957) Scott Carey (Grant Williams) is enjoying a boating trip when his yacht passes through a mysterious cloud of radioactive mist. Returning home, Scott is shocked to discover that he is slowly shrinking. Before long, ordinary household objects become tools in his battle for survival against previously harmless pests like spiders and even his pet cat. Trapped in the basement of his house, Scott gradually prepares himself to face infinity as he shrinks into a sub-atomic world. In 'The Creature from the Black Lagoon' (1954) an expedition exploring the Amazon River discovers 'Gill Man': half man and half amphibian. Thought by the team to be the missing link in human evolution, the creature is captured and kept under observation. While in captivity it falls in love with the chief scientist (Richard Carlson)'s female assistant (Julie Adams), and embarks on a kidnapping attempt. In 'The Thing from Another World' (1951) an air force crew, led by Captain Henry (Kenneth Tobey), is dispatched from Alaska to investigate a high-impact crash in the Arctic wilderness. The team are shocked to find that the craft is a flying saucer and frantically try to extricate it from the ice. They use too much gelignite, however, and blow the thing to smithereens. Nearby a body is found and immediately covered with a blanket. Unfortunately, the blanket is electric, and brings back to life a murderous creation (James Arness) who proceeds to terrify the crew. In 'It Came from Outer Space' (1953) astronomer John Putnam (Carlson) and his fiance, Ellen Fields (Barbara Rush), are intrigued by what appears to be a meteor in the night skies of Arizona. However, when the object crashes into the desert, Putnam becomes convinced that it is no natural phenomenon. The locals, led by Sheriff Matt Warren (Charles Drake), are distrustful and refuse to listen to his theories. However, when strange things start happening to the inhabitants of the town, even the most incredulous are forced to examine far-fetched explanations.

The Book of Jewish Women's Tales (Hardcover): Barbara Rush The Book of Jewish Women's Tales (Hardcover)

Whenever anyone tells a tale, that tale sends a message to the listener. When a Jewish storyteller tells a tale in a Jewish setting, that tale sends a Jewish message. And when a Jewish woman tells a tale to other Jewish women, she sends a Jewish woman's message: how to act as a Jewish woman - toward her community, toward other people, and toward God. This book is a collection of such women's tales and an analysis of their messages. The Book of Jewish Women's Tales consists of seventy-five stories, told and transmitted within the last two generations by Jewish women from around the world - from places as diverse as Ethiopia, India, Azerbaijan, Yemen, Greece, Eastern Europe, Israel, and the United States. The majority of the stories were culled from the Israel Folktale Archives, a repository of almost 19,000 tales; others Barbara Rush collected personally. Each story begins with an introduction in which Rush identifies its origin, its theme and meaning, and any other pertinent information about the tale, such as the biblical or talmudic passages to which it relates. The volume also includes sources to encourage further study of Jewish women's tales. The book is divided into sections, including life-cycle events such as birth, marriage, motherhood, aging, and death; holidays in the yearly cycle and Shabbat; and sections dealing with women in Israel and the strength of women. Some of the tales read like traditional fairy tales filled with supernatural beings, fairy godmothers, and royalty; others are romantic tales; still others deal with rites of passage and conflicts between men and women or among women. The stories have two things in common: in all of them the women emerge as strong, victorious, and clever, and all of the stories, while they have universal appeal to women, contain distinctly Jewish messages. The heroine does not merely win her beloved; their children carry on the teachings of the Torah. Some of the tales are based on biblical stories in which the faith of pious women is rewarded by God; others are local legends that tell of actual events in Jewish history. The Book of Jewish Women's Tales is a remarkable collection. As an anthology, it will delight and entertain, but as a valuable sourcebook, it will educate and inform. Through her extensive research, Barbara Rush has enabled us to see from a woman's perspective, not only the common elements of Jewish women from all corners of the world, but also what they share with women from all cultures and religions.

"A beautifully designed collection comprises fifteen Jewish tales that span many centuries and come for the most part from countries of the Middle East, Africa, and eastern Europe. There are stories that readers will recognize as familiar tales, moral tales that teach lessons, and there is even a story about a giant who went with Noah on the ark. [Caldecott medalist] Uri Shulevitz's watercolors . . . add just the right touch of wit and fantasy." H.
