The Life and Times of Jindrich Plachta

To study the life, work and times of Jindrich Plachta. Plachta was a comic theater and film actor and a writer of feuilletons in Czech newspapers. He was active from the 1920's. until the 1950's. He functioned under three extremely different political systems: the democratic first Czechoslovak Republic; the German Protectorate; and finally, the Communist Republic. Study will determine how this was accomplished. Such an in depth study of Plachta, who had close contact with Social Democratic leaders and writers, will add another dimension to the study of popular culture and its impact on the party's development.
