Kráčmera the gardener promises his former employer that he will continue to tend his garden. Soon the Kráčmeras buy a new house.

Mrs. Kráčmerová takes the place of the bellringer, who has fallen asleep. (Verleiher-Text)

Englisch A delight based on the book by Popelka Biliánová. So far I have compared Anton and Slavínský's versions and it is too difficult to choose, but both versions of the first adventures of Kráčmerka are significantly equal. Although the silent version oscillates between the 1920s and the top Austro-Hungarian apparatus, it is nevertheless delightful in the number of women of such a level that even Milka Balek-Brodská stands out among them as a true cinema star. While Slavínský elevated the lottery ticket plot to a modern mid-30s show and equipped his heroes with two million, here a much smaller sum was used. The moment I see Speerger as attractive, it's clear that this is an epic-level film. ()
