Though Czechoslovakia had already been swallowed up by the Nazi juggernaut in 1939, its film industry remained healthy and prolific. The bizarre Svet Patri Nam (The World Is Ours) endeavors to find humor in Hitler's takeover of Sudetenland. The protagonist is a crooked wax-museum proprietor who tries to make a profit on the fall of the government by creating a "puppet" fascist dictator. He is aided in this task by the comedy team of Voskovec and Werich, cast as a pair of enterprising reporters. Voskovec and Werich also wrote the script, which ends with the two "heroes" attending their own funeral services where they hear themselves lauded as heroes!
