Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Swedish actor Bengt Ekkeroth made his directorial debut with Det Glada Kalaset. The title translates as The Gay Party, said party dominating the proceedings throughout. Most of the film is a showcase for the vocal talents of Swedish pop singer Alice Babs, who offers several of her recent hits. The thinnish plotline, involving the preparations for the party, is carried by the antics of Olof Winnerstrand and Sicken Carlsson. One of the more financially successful Scandanavian films of 1946, Det Glada Kalaset was not exactly a smash in English-speaking markets.
