Abrham († 82) already has a statue in Moravia: He has been standing there for 66 years!

There is perhaps no more convenient place to hold a Summer Film School than Uherské Hradiště, where the young Josef attended the grammar school. The unsuspecting visitors are supervised by a statue of a young shujah, in which the then 17-year-old is immortalized Abrham. His grandfather, the owner of a brickyard in Kunovice, sold bricks for the construction of workers’ houses even to Baťa.

Director Zelenka about Josef Abrhám († 82): He could make humor without vulgarities

He was able to financially support the local culture and friends of the artist. The sculptor Jan Habart rewarded him with his art. After the death of Abrham’s grandfather, friendly relations did not cool down. When the offer for the monument came, the sculptor reached for the future acting star. He had modeled little Pep once before – he immortalized him in bronze when he was seven. The statuette called The Whistling Boy is located in the gallery of the Slovácko Museum in Uherské Hradiště.

The first role

Six years after standing as a model for the monument in Uherské Hradiště, Josef Abrhám appeared for the first time on camera. It was in the film Ceiling, the debut film Věra Chytilová († 85). Only the 21-year-old actor is trying to seduce Marta’s mannequin in his role. The film was also a success abroad.
