Summary/Abstract: The study interpretes the results of research focused on the specific area of the work of the famous Slovak writer Dominik Tatarka (1913 – 1989). During the years 1948 – 1972, Tatarka devoted himself to film work. This is evidenced by the preserved film stories, treatments or literary scenarios, as well as documentation on the literary-dramaturgical preparation of individual works (contracts, correspondence, reviews). The author of the study utilised materials available from the National Film Archive of the Slovak Film Institute in Bratislava, in conjunction with materials found at Tatarka’s estate in the Literary Archive of the Museum of Czech Literature in Prague. On the basis of the research, it can be stated that only one feature-length film based on Tatark’s scenario was created in the reviewed period: Miraculous Virgin directed by Štefan Uher (1966).
