Karel Zeman: 'Baron Prášil' / 'The Fabulous Baron Munchausen' (1962)

Karel Zeman's Baron Prášil / The Fabulous Baron Munchausen / The Outrageous Baron Munchausen (1962), a strangely smooth film that may help put you in an altered state, stars the fabulous Miloš Kopecký (1922-1996) as Baron Munchausen, and the also fabulous Jana Brejchova (born 1940) as Princess Bianca. Tonik / Tony (aka Moonman) is played by Rudolf Jelínek (born 1935). 
Which reminds me of: "They've got a moonman on the telephone / Project X, hey Houston control . . .."  ~ Iggy Pop, "Houston is Hot Tonight" (1981)
Nothing quite like The Fabulous Baron Munchausen. Go where the magic ink flows . . . 
Princess Bianca writes a letter. Hey kids, do you know what a letter is? Do you know what writing is?
