En Svensk Tiger (A Swedish Tiger) is an entertaining espionage drama set during WW2. The story is predicated on the intelligence efforts to keep General Montgomery's maneuvers secret from the Nazis. To this end, a Swedish actor named Johan Tiger (Edvin Adolphson) is engaged to impersonate "Monty" to throw the Germans off the track. Once this is accomplished, Tiger must extricate himself from a perilous dilemma while travelling homeward on a "doomed" passenger ship. En Svensk Tiger was based on a true story, later filmed a bit more accurately in England as I Was Monty's Double.
