The Eichmann Show
14,99 € *

The behind-the-scenes true life story of ground-breaking producer Milton Fruchtman and blacklisted TV director Leo Hurwitz, who, overcoming enormous obstacles, set out to capture the testimony of one of the war's most notorious Nazis, Adolf Eichmann. He is accused of executing the 'final solution' and organising the murder of six million Jews. This is the extraordinary story of how Eichmann's trial came to be televised and the team that made it happen. Filmed at the trial in Jerusalem in 1961, the production became the world's first ever global TV documentary series, where, for the first time, the horror of the camps was heard directly from the mouths of its victims. It was edited daily and broadcast in Germany, America, Israel and 34 other countries. People fainted when they saw it on TV. Never before had there been such drama in the use of cameras, their positioning or the revolutionary effect of operators being able to adjust frame and position to match subject and content.

A onetime baseball catcher confronts the murder of a McCarthyist politician at Yankee Stadium. In 1953 America, McCarthyism is everywhere. Congressman Rex Harwood Simmons is among the leaders who single-mindedly hunt down suspected Communists; he even claims that Communism has infiltrated America’s favorite pastime. But while watching a Yankee game one afternoon, he becomes a target. As the crowd cheers for a home run, Simmons is shot dead in his seat. The task of solving the crime falls to onetime ballplayer and Korean War veteran Russ Garrett, who collaborates with “Vicious Aloysius” Murphy, a Bronx homicide detective. The investigation won’t be easy, since there are plenty of people with a motive to plug Simmons. Several clues point to a blacklisted intellectual - but he was driven to suicide years ago. And as Garrett hunts for the killer, a new conspiracy comes to light: a plot to murder Yankee star Mickey Mantle. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Delgado.

The Curtlees are a powerful force in San Francisco, unscrupulous billionaires who’ve lined every important pocket in the Bay Area in pursuit of their own ascent. So when the family’s heir, Ro Curtlee, was convicted of rape and murder a decade ago, the fallout for those who helped to bring him to justice was swift and uncompromising. The jury foreman was fired from his job and blacklisted in his industry. The lead prosecutor was pushed off the fast track, her dreams of becoming district attorney dashed. And head homicide detective Abe Glitsky was reassigned to the police department’s payroll office. Eventually, all three were able to rebuild their lives. And then Ro Curtlee’s lawyers won him a retrial, and he was released from jail. Within twenty-four hours, a fire destroys the home of the original trial’s star witness, her abused remains discovered in the ruins. When a second fire claims a participant in the case, Abe is convinced: Ro is out for revenge. But with no hard evidence and an on-the-take media eager to vilify anyone who challenges Ro, can Abe stop the violence before he finds himself in its crosshairs? How much more can he sacrifice to put Ro back behind bars? 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Colacci. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/brll/002652/bk_brll_002652_sample.mp3.

Engaging.... Profound.... Darkly humorous (Kirkus Reviews)"Taut pacing, interesting character development.... Twists and turns abound" (Blue Ink Review)StarBash is the hottest thing on TV. Featuring desperate actors facing off in madcap competitions to win a movie deal, the reality show is famous for making fools of its fame-starved participants.So it seems odd that respected Hollywood A-lister Cassandra "Casmo" Moreaux would become a contestant. But her motivation is simple: revenge against the program's producer, Lenora Danmore, the legendary movie star who blacklisted Casmo's mother during the McCarthy era. Casmo plans to use StarBash to confront and embarrass Lenora in front of the entire country - but what Casmo doesn't know could kill her.Vindictive and wicked, Lenora is determined to set a trap for the upstart movie star. But when Casmo unexpectedly falls in love with the show's wry host - Lenora's illegitimate son - the murder plot bubbles over with unforeseen complications.Featuring sarcastic celebrities, murderous androids, and off-the-wall humor from beginning to end, Death of a Movie Star masterfully pulls Hollywood culture apart at the seams. It's a Tinseltown romp that's part mystery, part suspense, and two parts roller derby!Rating: This story does not contain any graphic violence, language, or sexual encounters. Its rating would be similar to PG-13 movie. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Campbell. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/120502/bk_acx0_120502_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
