In the historic premises of Klas Restaurant at 5734 West Cermak Road the film was viewed with a good Czech beer. The whole area is actually a museum with lots of collected items and period furniture. (Czechoslovak Heritage Museum). One could feel the breath of the 30’s, days when a large community of Czechs and Slovaks lived in Chicago. Even the mayor of Chicago, Anton Cermak was of a Czech origin. The screening attended representatives of American war veterans, Czechs and Slovaks from Masaryk Czech school, film workers, Susan Marcinkus, producer and director of Slovak origin, etc.
