Starci na chmelu (The Hop Pickers)

(also known as Hop Side Story and Green Gold)

This first Czech musical comedy deals with adolescent morality and bureaucracy without being heavy handed. Under school supervision, a group of pre-teen boys and girls are busy picking hops. One might expect a 'communist musical' but it is more a love story. One boy (Vladimír Pucholt) who seeks privacy builds a secret hideaway in an attic. When a schoolgirl (Ivana Pavlová) finds him in his retreat, innocent puppy-love blossoms, but a jealous classmate (Miloš Zavadil) tells the teacher (Irena Kačírková) about the two friends, and they are suspended from school. The boy and girl accept their punishment and form an even stronger bond. The two leave the school together while their classmates ostracize the jealous informant.

Dáma na kolejích (Lady on the Tracks)

The Czech musical comedy about a lady streetcar driver in Prague (Jiřina Bohdalová) who mounts a campaign for women's rights when she discovers her husband's love affair.
