Ladislav Rychman (1922 – 2007) was a Czech film director, who made the Czechoslovak musical comedies The Hop Pickers (1964) and Lady on the Tracks (1966). Rychman is also considered a key figure in the development of early Czech music videos. 1958's "Dáme si do bytu" ("Let's get to the apartment") differs in style to earlier musical films such as Bessie Smith's St. Louis Blues, in that the narrative is contained within the song and not extrapolated out into a longer form story. It also features heavy art direction and abstraction which was not common in promotional music films at the time.
