Six Bears and a Clown posterSix Bears and a Clown (Sest medvedu s Cibulkou)
      1972 | Czechoslovakia | Laughs: 3.5 (Watch Once) | imdb: 6.9
      who was involved?

Six circus bears on the run end up at the local school. The clown (who is also a master of disguise) and his chimpanzee has to cover up for them. This is one of those rare movies for kids that adults can also watch without cringing. No doubt the movie was also an excuse to show off some superbly trained animals. I enjoyed it, but I'd only suggest watching it if you have kids around who are tolerant of older movies and subtitles. (Last viewed: July 2014)

The White Lady posterThe White Lady (Bílá paní)
      1965 | Czechoslovakia | Laughs: 2.8 (Light-Hearted) | imdb: 7.4
      who was involved?

In the old castle of a country town, a lady steps out of a painting at full moon to grant people their wishes, causing headaches for the authorities, committed as they are to a purely material, non-spiritual viewpoint. Although I didn't laugh, I enjoyed this funny movie that probably does a good job of capturing something of the bureaucracy behind the iron curtain in the mid 1960s. (Last viewed: July 2014)

The Firemen's BallThe Firemen's Ball (a.k.a The Fireman's Ball) (Hoří, má panenko)
      1967 | Czechoslovakia | Laughs: 2.0 (Watch Once) | imdb: 7.7
      wikipedia | who was involved?

A light comedy about a ball given by a small town's fire brigade in honor of their former chairman. Probably nothing to make you break into a laugh, but the movie scores points for the cultural experience it provides—a trip back in time to a country that no longer exists, and to a film tradition far removed from present-day Hollywood.

How to Drown Dr. Mracek, the Lawyer posterHow to Drown Dr. Mracek, the Lawyer
      1975 | Czechoslovakia | Laughs: 2.0 (Light-Hearted) | imdb: 7.6
      wikipedia | who was involved?

This is a terrific movie about water sprites (immortal humanoids who can turn into fish and travel through plumbing) who are faced with extinction. To avoid eviction, they need to drown a lawyer, but he and a female sprite fall in love. The movie didn't make me laugh, but it sure had me smiling the whole time. Highly unusual and highly recommended. (Last viewed: July 2014)
