Bistro Bohem will screen "Lemonade Joe" (Limonádový Joe) on May 16, 2017, at 7 pm, as part of the ongoing film and beer series. In this musical comedy satirizing the American Western genre, clean-cut gunfighter Lemonade Joe takes on a town full of whiskey-drinking cowboys.
Straight shooting Lemonade Joe cleans up Stetson City, in this musical parody of early Westerns, after shooting the pants off villain Old Pistol. Joe’s endorsement of Kolaloka (Crazy Cola) lemonade as the refresher that assures deadly aim, convinces the Arizona sin-town to abstain from alcohol. The film was based on the 1963 Czech stage production. Meanwhile, Trigger Whiskey maker Duke Badman’s brother, the devious gunslinger Hogofogo, comes to save his sibling’s saloon from Joe’s allies, father and daughter temperance revivalists, the Goodmans.
