Nittioettau Karlssons Permis Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

This broad Swedish comedy was based on the popular Scandinavian comic-strip character Private Karlsson. Though the title translates as Private Karlsson on Leave, the film gets many of its laughs by satirizing army-camp protocol and discipline. [[Performer~P219400~Gus Dahlstrom~gusdahlstrom]] plays the title character, getting into all sorts of jams when he mingles with the civilians. Non-Swedish audiences tended to find some of the routines dull and offensive, but domestic audiences howled with hilarity. Like most service comedies of the era, Nittioettan Karlssons Permis struck its most responsive chord with ex-servicemen. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
