When Elvis Hansen (Steen Springborg), his wife Herdis (Lone Helmer), and their son Brian (Jorn Lendorph) move into a new home, a comedy of manners begins. The loud and loutish Elvis and family cause their wealthy neighbors no end of grief as social classes collide. Kirsten Rolphe plays the snooty society woman Putte who, with husband Brian (Poul Bundgaard), reacts to the invasion of their lower class neighbors. The English translation of the title is Elvis Hansen - A Pillar of Society (in Denmark, Pillar of Society is a colloquialism for beer bottle opener, which certainly applies to Elvis Hansen).
