Released in 1934, this proletarian comedy delivers such wacky delights as a musical number in which stars Jan Werich and Jiri Voskovec cavort before a giant bar graph of rising unemployment. Werich plays a factory owner who’s ruined by a scheming competitor, and Voskovec is the revolutionary-minded worker who shows him how the other half lives. Their adventures on the road play like a Laurel and Hardy version of Sullivan’s Travels, though the balance of the film centers on the factory’s revival by a jubilant workers’ collective. A popular comedy team in Czechoslovakia, Werich and Voskovec fled to the U.S. in 1939, where Voskovec, using the name George, enjoyed a long career as a character actor (most memorably in 12 Angry Men). Martin Fric directed. 87 min.
