Afterwards, he made The Murderer Hides His Face (Vrah skryvá tvár, 1966) and Po stopách krve (1969), which together with the two previous films makes sort of a trilogy of criminal films with Rudolf Hrusínský as detective Kalas.

He also tried out himself in the genre of comedy with Hodíme se k sobe, milácku..? (1974), Zítra roztocíme, drahousku... (1976), 'Já to tedy beru, séfe..!' (1977), Já uz budu hodný, dedecku! (1979), Co je doma, to se pocítá, pánové... (1980) and Príste budeme chytrejsí, starousku! (1982). He returned to his character of inspector Kalas in the film Diagnóza smrti (1979).
