Abstract: The goal of the thesis is to compare the profitability of Czechoslovak New Wave
movies with the rest of the movies made in 1960s in Czechoslovakia. The comparison
uses statistical tests and visualising using boxplots. The comparison consists of three
steps; the comparison of gains, the comparison of production costs and the comparison
of attendance. The comparison of production costs is supplemented by comparison of
the exterior filming typical for Czechoslovak New Wave and by regression model showing
which factors had influence on production costs. Among the factors are exterior filming,
atelier filming, whole production time and the model contains also dummies: film color,
film format and whether the movie is Czechoslovak New Wave movie or not. This analysis
is put into Czechoslovak political and economic background since 1945 to 1970. The thesis
briefly describes the Czechoslovak New Wave movement and describes the development
of Czechoslovak film industry since 1945 to 1970 and its indicators such as number of
cinemas and seats, attendance and number of produced movies.
