A former writer called this a B-movie, well it's actually not, it's the kind of movie that we made tons of in the 1930's, light entertainment with crooks slightly overdone, and therefor easy to point out. This movie would have been totally forgotten if it wasn't for the debut of Ingrid Bergman, and she is young and charming in this one. This kind of folksy commedies was very popular with the audiences at the time, but set wrath on critics who labeled this kind of movies Pilsner-movies (Pilsner was a non sparkling beer back then in the 1930s).
The alcoholic jokes in this movie dates back , like in USA they wanted the citizens to be sober once , and in Sweden we had something called the Mot-Book, that restricted any citizen to take out more than his or her ransion of alcohol per month.
