Jiří Trnka’s adaptation of the classic Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale about a Chinese emperor entranced by the song of a mechanical nightingale is an enchanting animated jewel box awash in hallucinatory storybook imagery. Program includes the animated shorts “The Two Frosts” (1954, 12 min. Dir. Jiří Trnka) and “Song of the Prairie” (1949, 20 min. Dir. Jiří Trnka).
Presented by the American Cinematheque and Comeback Company
“The Two Frosts” (Dva mrazíci) (1954, Czechoslovakia, 12 min. Dir. Jiří Trnka) Two mischievous frost spirits — voiced by famed comedian Vlasta Burian and author, popular actor, and satirist Jan Werich — make things chilly for a pair of travelers in this wintry comic folktale. In Czech wi...th English subtitles.
“Song of the Prairie” (Arie prerie) (1949, Czechoslovakia, 20 min. Dir. Jiří Trnka) One of Trnka’s most delightfully silly efforts is a slapstick spoof of John Ford’s Stagecoach and Hollywood singing cowboy Westerns based on a popular novel by Jiří Brdečka, who would later direct his own adaptation, the cult favorite LEMONADE JOE.
