Group 7

We made this audio-visual essay as a contribution to one of the most popular, outstanding and significant comedian in the Czech Republic, Vlasta Burian. His acting career started back in 1914 and continued until 1958. Burian built his acting on improvisation which is one of the reasons why every single one of his characters is so unique and loved in the Czech Republic. He used the same improvisation method not only in movies but also at the theater stage.
With all of this in mind, we put together a series of clips from some of the most popular Czech comedies with Vlasta Burian to demonstrate how this specific type of humor shaped some parts our Czech wit into a version we know today. All of the movies we used are from 1930s, filmed in black-and-white, apart from one that is from 1954 and already in colors.
