Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The title of this Swedish comedy translates to Sailors, giving audiences of 1946 a good idea of what they were in for. Comedies about lovesick sailors had always been popular with Scandinavian filmgoers, and this one was no exception. The star of the proceedings is Nils Poppe, Sweden's favorite comic actor of the 1940s. Poppe also co-wrote the screenplay, which revived all the old maritime-flick cliches and even invented a few new ones. Blajackor was adapted from the hit musical play by Louis Laital, ensuring a built-in following for this breezy confection.
