Prague: Barrandov, 1966. First Edition, one of 1000 copies issued in English. A promotional book produced by Czechoslovakian Barrandov Studios to advertise their services to the wider professional filmmaking world. With a presentation slip from the studio and a business card belonging to the studio's press secretary laid in. Profusely illustrated throughout with photographs of the studio's facilities, stills from films produced there, and people at work, and a list of awards won by films produced there from 1963 through 1965.
Often referred to as the "Hollywood of the East," Barrandov Studios is one of the largest and oldest film studios in Europe. In the 1960s, it was instrumental as the studio of the Czechoslovak New Wave, producing films by directors Milos Foreman, Jan Nemec, Elmar Klos and Jan Kadar. Films both foreign and domestic continue to be produced there today.
Very Good plus in flexible boards with light foxing.
