The unknown film revealed at last!!!
You might recognize this image from my Darkstrider website.... posted there as the thumbnail for Unknown Movie. I found it on a Kratke Film promo tape Ted Sydor (my Czech Connection) sent me a few years ago. It was just the clip as posted on my website.... no name or information associated with it. Well, at long last, someone has contacted me and ended the ignorance! Here's the email I got tonight from someone calling himself Off the Shelf Productions:
Ha, Ha I know what the Unknown film is... Dalibor's Tower it was Directed by Ivan Renc and Designed by Milada Kucerova. It is a picture based on the old Prague legend. It is a well-known story of a chieftain named Dalibor who defended his serfs and, as a result, was imprisoned in the Prague castle in a tower. He endeared himself in the hearts of the Prague citizens by playing violin there. After he was executed, Prague people started to call the tower Dalibor's Tower.
I'm assuming This is a Czech because, well, he knows Czech things, and he kinda talks funny. Anyway, whoever you are, thank you immensely!
Oh, and if you didn't already figure this out, click on the image to see the clip.
