Film at Filmový přehled


Working from the story Poslední klíč (The Last Key) written by Karel Štorkán and Vladimír Kalina, director Ivo Toman created Slečny přijdou později (The Girls Will Turn Up Later, 1966). The detective story follows members of Prague CID as they investigate a group of people in the hospitality industry who have expanded their range of services for foreign visitors to include paid sex. However, the Prague hotel that is a focal point of the investigation is also plagued by a spate of deaths –a suspicious number of people have fallen out of its windows. More accustomed to investigating property-related crime, police detective Captain Roháč (Bohumil Šmída) thus finds himself investigating two related murders as well… The part of the barber Forejt, involved along with his pals in the sinister business, was played by Svatopluk Beneš, otherwise rarely cast during the 1960s. The then star of the silver screen Olga Schoberová played the prostitute Saša. Although the role of the hotel’s porter was rather small, it did not stop Pavel Landovský from excelling in it, while director Juraj Herz makes an appearance as the Egyptian tourist Salim.
