Popular Swedish director-star Sigurd Wallen is as usual the whole show in Var Herr Luggar Johansson (Johansson Gets Scolded). The title character, played by Wallen, is a small-time businessman with big-time notions. Intending to improve her social status, Mrs. Johansson (Dagmar Ebbeseu) brings nothing but headaches to her husband. Then there's Johansson's son Olle (Anders Ek), who is falsely accused of a crime simply because he can't account for his whereabouts. Adding to Johansson's woes is his garrulous mother-in-law, a staple character in Swedish comedies of the era. Substitute Edgar Kennedy for Sigurd Wallen, and one might be able to glean an amusing 2-reeler out of this limp comedy.
