Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Swedish director Hasse Ekman might have seen the multistoried Hollywood film Tales from Manhattan before embarking on his own Flickan Fran Tredje Raden. In Manhattan, the prop common to all of the stories was a dress suit. In Flickan, a valuable ring passes from one owner to the next. The title character, played by Eve Henning, is a woman of reduced circumstances who sells the ring to pay for food, thereby setting the first episode (and all subsequent episodes) in motion. Director Ekman also wrote the screenplay and cast himself in an important role.
