Synopsis

A filmed documentary of the last days in free Czechoslovakia before Hitler invaded. The film was not yet complete, or certain parts of it even processed, before German tanks came rolling into Prague. The raw footage was smuggled out piecemeal by the then-refugee filmmakers, who met in New York in 1939 to complete and screen the film, which ultimately played. It is, as one can imagine, heavily anti-fascist in tone, and remains a valuable document of life in Czechoslovakia between the wars. ~ David Lewis, Rovi
