Once Upon a Time, There Was a King...

Byl jednou jeden král...

Directed by Bořivoj Zeman
Czechoslovakia, 1955
Fantasy, Comedy


A king, who calls himself “I the First”, wants to know, who of his three daughters loves him most. The youngest of them, Maruška, states that she loves him like salt. The king is flamed up, because salt is just a “worthless mineral”, and he expels her out of the palace.
