Operatic Western

A musical parody of the classic westerns, mainly inspired in the characters and situations in "Stagecoach", this Jiøí Trnka animated short is not only an art direction exercise in a genre foreign to Czech filmmakers but a variation of the usual main premise: this time the heroic cowboy does not fall for the bad girl with a heart of gold, but instead he sings his love (out of the blue) to the refined dame (not pregnant), the villain is a gambler, while the driver's companion consumes all the whiskey in sight. The non-stop singing links the film more to the European operatic tradition than to a musical. A funny short and an opportunity to see a master at work.
