|My paper concerns film adaptations of literary works undertaken in Communist Czechoslovakia over the period from 1948 to 1955. I aim to show that not all adaptations produced by the state - controlled film industry were just artistically uninspired flops whose sole aspiration was to expound official ideology by other means. Although the Party apparatchiks strived to mold film adaptations according to the spirit of Marxism - Leninism, not every movie coming out of this ideological pressure cooker turned into a mere passive mouthpiece of doctrine emanating from high above.
