Based on a play by Helge Krog, Pa Solisdan (On the Sunny Side) was one of Gustav Molander's most popular films. Lars Hanson stars as wealthy Harold Ribe, who steals naïve provincial girl Eve (Ingrid Bergman) away from lothario novelist Joachim Brink (Edvin Adolphson). Feeling that Eve lacks sophistication, Harold introduces him to his city friends, only to find himself battling for the girl's attentions with another man. Meanwhile, Brink finds solace in a romance with Harold's sister Kajsa (Marianne Lofgren). In 1936, American critics were impressed by most of the cast, though they tended to ignore newcomer Ingrid Bergman in her first starring role. Pa Solisdan was remade for Swedish television in 1966.
