Karel Zeman’s 1962 film The Outrageous Baron Munchausen (Baron Prásil) takes as its starting point the tales of the fictional German nobleman of the title. Worlds collide when a young astronaut, Tommy, finds the rococo braggart on the moon and the two explorers set off together on a series of fantastical adventures. Setting the action against deliberately artificial backgrounds, the film mixes live action with animation and stop-motion to tell a story that is as outrageous as the title promises. In Czech with English subtitles. (HD) Karel Zeman Museum
