"The action is set in a fictional Arizona, where Doug Badman, owner of the Trigger Whisky saloon, controls a small town, and entertains himself by sponsoring saloon girl musical numbers and what may be the longest, craziest bar brawl of all time. When Badman's glass-eating thug menaces temperance crusader Ezra Goodman, and his luscious daughter Winnifred, Lemonade Joe shows up to save the day in his own inimitable style. Joe's arrival sets off a moderately vicious battle for the minds (and wallets) of the town's residents between Goodman's newly founded Kolaloka outlet, and Badman's depraved whisky den. Events are complicated by the arrival of Doug Badman's even worse brother Horace Badman, and by Tornado Lou, the local torch singer, who has been waiting for a champion like Joe and does not want competition from the demure Winnifred."--David Austin,

Baron Prášil( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in Czech and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1961, Karel Zeman made the finest film adaptation of the outlandish tales of Baron Munchausen, made famous in the 1786 book by Gottfried August Bürger. The incredible adventures of the bragging Baron come to life in a film celebrating the courage and imagination of dreamers and poets. Zeman took inspiration from the engravings in the 1862 edition, the work of one of the greatest illustrators of the 19th century Gustave Doré. The director achieved a visually captivating style by color-tinting the original black and white footage. In the movie, Munchausen's humorous narrative contrasts with the romantic tale of a modern fantasist Tony, who becomes the good Baron's rival in love."--Container

Kolty bez pozlátka by Jiří Brdečka( Book )

6 editions published between 1956 and 1987 in Czech and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Známý autor satirického Limonádového Joe napsal tentokráte seriosní vyprávění o třech populárních pistolnících Divokého západu, kteří kdysi v revolverových mythech, pokřiveni falešnými retušemi, vzněcovali fantasii mládí. Jsou to příběhy Divokého Billa Hickoka, Billy Kida a Jesse Jamese, líčené (pokud byly autoru prameny dostupny) tak, aby historická pravda a skutečnost co nejhodnověrněji vystoupila. Je tu nejen zachycena životní dráha těchto osob, ale také doba, tehdejší způsob života, vývoj osobnosti v určitých společenských a historických podmínkách. Autentické fotografie, doprovázející text, pomáhají dokreslit reálnou představu, na rozdíl od barvotiskových rodokapsových seriálů falešné romantické legendy

"In this parody of classic horror films set in 1897 (the year "Dracula" was published), the operatic tenor Count Felix Teleke and the winsome Salsa Verde are in the forbidding castle of Baron Gore, located close to Werewolfville. The sinister Baron lusts after Salsa but also feels a deep passion for invention and has hired a crazed inventor to work full time. Instead of Frankenstein or a vampire, the inventor comes up with a television, a tape recorder, and a camera."
