There were a period at Barrandov studios when naked women were not allowed in film. You couldn’t show naked breasts. Actually, you could show only one naked breast, not both. In my film THE APPLE GAME, actress Dasa Blahova sits by fire and takes off everything. Her breasts are very small and i used it in connection with her line, “it is interesting how little you need to be happy.” That’s what she says when she reveals her breasts. It had a secondary meaning. This scene raised hell. They said it was pornography and tried to ban the film. My colleagues started the whole nonsense, of course-why should i be allowed to show two breasts when they can’t? Then film was shown at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival. I was not invited but i went there on my own anyway, just to make a scandal. I went to a party, pulled out the General Manager Jiri Purs and some other guy and asked him, “What jerk came up with an idea that only one breast can be shown on the screen?” And Purs said, “That was my idea.” He confessed. It was a funny situation and he was ashamed.
