National Film Archive has signed a contract with Janus Films for cinema screening of more than thirty Czech classics in North America. Also, all the films will gradually appear in the Criterion Collection.

...and they've also confirmed that they'll be upgrading Diamonds of the Night to Blu-ray.

That's great news, Michael. Have you been asked to contribute a commentary to it as well?

No. Although in all fairness they didn't commission the Black Peter commentary upfront either - I pitched it to them after writing this Forman obituary and realising that I had far more information about the Czech period of his career than I could possibly squeeze into a 1,500-word piece that was supposed to cover the whole of it.

(The original plan was for the commentary to focus heavily on Forman's early career, but in the event I came up with a surprising amount to say about Black Peter specifically. Which is just as well, as I didn't know at the time that they were also licensing a substantial Forman interview covering his life up to 1964, which I watched with some trepidation before signing off on the commentary - but in the event there was virtually no content overlap at all, and I couldn't bring myself to remove the one anecdote that they had in common, as it would have been perverse not to have told the story of the woman playing the mother and her overzealous on-set baking over the shots of her doing just that.)

It seems like Třicet jedna ve stínu (Ninety Degrees in the Shade) (1965) was shot in English (with actors from the UK in major roles) and was available on UK DVD from Odeon (which now appears out-of-print), so hopefully, the Czech DVD is not simply dubbed in Czech with English subtitles.

It's a bit more complicated than that - as far as I'm aware, the film was shot back to back in English and Czech, as clearly different takes are used for the dialogue scenes and different editors are credited for each version (whose running times also differ, with the Czech version being a fair bit shorter). Further evidence comes from the fact that Rudolf Hrušínský is obviously dubbed in the English version, but the lip-sync is close enough to suggest that he was acting in English - but he's unquestionably speaking Czech in his own voice in the Czech version.

So I'm assuming (and I'd be surprised if this wasn't the case) that this is the Czech cut of the film, with Hrušínský and most of the supporting cast acting in their native language but with the four British actors dubbed into Czech.
