Story of the Bass Cello


I was putting together a list of movies, The More Refined One Is, the More Unhappy, based on Chekhov stories and plays, and came across a couple of fun shorties drawn from his story, Romance with a Double Bass.  The first stars John Cleese and Connie Booth, a year before they teamed up on Fawlty Towers .  The second is a wonderful Czech animated feature by Jiri Trnka, which dates from 1949.    Oddly enough, I'm not able to find a copy of the story online.
