The famous stage production of A Walk Worthwhile by legendary writing duo Jirí Suchý & Jirí Slitr was created for Semafor Theatre in 1965. Several generations of audiences grew up on the original music of Jirí Slitr, the poetic texts of Jirí Suchý and the entire Semafor ensemble. Milos Forman and Ján Rohác shot A Walk Worthwhile in 1966 as a television film A Well Paid Walk (1966). The new premiere of the theatre production was held in Prague's National Theatre in 2007, directed by Milos Forman in association with his sons, director Petr Forman and stage designer Matej Forman; and this also gave rise to a new film version of the exquisitely staged, comic jazz opera. Uli and Vanilka are getting a divorce. They are in the middle of sorting out snags in the divorce proceedings with the Advocate when the Postman delivers two mysterious telegrams from Liverpool. Rich Auntie has decided to bequeath to Vanilka's future child one million pounds. In the wake of this news, Vanilka, Uli, the ... Written by catalogue IFF Karlovy Vary
