Lásky jedné plavovlásky = Loves of a blond by Miloš Forman( Visual )

A tender and humorous look at Andula's journey, from the first pangs of romance to its inevitable disappointments, Loves of a Blonde(Lásky jedné plavovlásky) immediately became a classic of the Czech New Wave and earned Milos Forman the first of his Academy Award nominations."--Website
Hoří, má panenko = The firemen's ball by Miloš Forman( Visual )

47 editions published between 1967 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Synopsis: A milestone of the Czech New Wave, Milos Forman's first color film The Firemen's Ball (Horí, má panenko) is both a dazzling comedy and a provocative political satire. A hilarious saga of good intentions confounded, the story chronicles a firemen's ball where nothing goes right-from a beauty pageant whose reluctant participants embarrass the organizers to a lottery from which nearly all the prizes are pilfered. Presumed to be a commentary on the floundering Czech leadership, the film was "banned forever" in Czechoslovakia following the Russian invasion and prompted Forman's move to America."--Website

16-year-old Petr has just started his first job--patrolling for shoplifters in a grocery store. An unsure young man, he is now an agent of the established order, yet he looks on complacently when a stout woman steals some candy. His father, a part time bandmaster, is a petty dictator--Petr resists playing audience to his habitual old-school monologues. His father lacks any direction for the future and Petr is confused and adrift. The disappointments and bewilderments of youth, traditional generational conflict, and a sense of cultural paralysis animate this slender story of human moments that bind, rather than divide, young and old

Turnaround : a memoir by Miloš Forman( Book )

11 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In these pages are wonderful stories of the artist as a young man: tales of finding love in a deranged Communist bureaucracy, fleeing his beloved homeland, living in the bohemian Chelsea Hotel in the late sixties, discovering free spirits in Greenwich Village, learning the peculiar ways and means of Hollywood, reaching the pinnacle of professional success, and, finally, being allowed to return home to film the life of another young genius, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. But above all, Forman's life story can be read as a chronicle of the bittersweet intersection of life, love, politics, and art. Frank, vibrant, passionate, Turnaround is a triumph."--Jacket
