Karel Effa in Lemonade Joe

Lemonade Joe

1964 NR

This Czechoslovakian spoof of classic Hollywood Westerns features hookers with hearts of gold, evil cattle rustlers, heroic duels and the title character -- a sweet, teetotaling cowboy. When alcoholic villains threaten a gorgeous temperance crusader at the Trigger Whiskey Saloon, Lemonade Joe (Karel Fiala) comes to the rescue. Oldrich Lipsky, the artistic director of Prague's Satirical Theater, helms this silly song-filled send-up.
