Personal Quote:

[on film adaptations of his books] In the case of Dita Saxová (1968), I think the book was better; the screen adaptation of Diamonds of the Night (1964) is as good as the book; in Transport z ráje (1963) the movie sometimes goes beyond the book.


He is survived by his son, Josef, and daughter, Eva. See more »
