This article offers an analysis of the Polish-Czechoslovak co-production
What Will My Wife Say to This? (Co řekne žena, 1958, directed by Jaroslav
Mach) as seen from the perspective of production-related and cultural factors.
It provides a methodological background useful for the study of co-productions
made in communist countries and presents the general circumstances of Polish-Czechoslovak
co-operation in 1948–1958. The analysis of the film – the
first Polish-Czechoslovak post-war co-production – shows the process of production
as a field of conflicting goals and interests.
