The puppet films of Jiri Trnka The emperor's nightingale ( Visual )
6 editions published between 1984 and 1999 in Czech and English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Story of the bass cello is based on Chekhov's story about a bass player whose clothes are stolen while he's bathing in a river. The song of the prairie is a parody of the wild American West where the pistol rules, timidity has no place, and love blossoms. The merry circus, created by using paper cut-outs and stop-action photography, shows an afternoon at a circus. A drop too much is the tragic tale of a motorcyclist who, happily on his way to meet his fiancee, stops at a tavern with disastrous results. The hand tells the story of a happy artist who devotes his time to making a pot for his favorite flower until he is ordered by a giant hand to create a statue instead. Jiri Trnka, puppet animation master is a brief documentary that includes clips of the artist working on his puppets and excerpts from some of his films. The emperor's nightingale is based on the story by Hans Christian Andersen in which the emperor loves the song of the nightingale so much that he buys an artificical bird which breaks the real nightingale's heart
