American pulp fiction recreated the Czech way. Director Oldřich Lipský and screenwriter Jiří Brdečka made three wonderful comedies that are both parodies and homage to popular film genres: a western story about sinful Arizona town, love and alcohol-free lemonade; Prague-based adventures of genius American detective Nick Carter; and mysterious dark story emerging from Jules Verne imagination but mixing it with a very Czech approach. All three films became true classics, despite the fact that local people had no or very little access to “low capitalist entertainment”. They combine witty and well-timed screenplays, wonderful visuals (Jan Švankmajer worked on two of them) and great cast.
