Did You Know?


The odd big-eyed figures seen in the background of some scenes at Robin Hood's camp are large versions of Fauni trolls, created by Helena Kuuskoski. These were popular at the time and even had their own theme park in a forest near Järvenpää, about 40km from Helsinki. Later Kuuskoski moved to America where she continued making troll figurines.

Medieval fun with Spede and friends

Noin 7 veljestä shows us a various group of funny men in medieval surroundings.Juhani Kumpulainen is Linnanherra von Wurtzburg, Spede Pasanen is in a double role as Sir Wilhelm and Robin Hood, Simo Salminen is Mauno Munalukko, Leo Jokela is Seppä Leonardo, Helge Herala is Rautahanska, Vesa-Matti Loiri is Huovi, Ere Kokkonen is Pitkä-Jussi, Jukka Virtanen is Veli Tuck, Olavi Ahonen is Pappi, Veikko Sinisalo as Takku and the legendary singer Danny is the troubadour.Then there are the beautiful women Pirkko Kankaanpää as Venla, Kaisu Vuoristo as Helena and Krista Sihvo as Leonardo's wife.This movie was directed by Jukka Virtanen in 1968 and Ere Kokkonen and Spede Pasanen wrote it.The late Jaakko Salo made the music to it.Spede movies were funniest among all Finnish movies.This isn't an exception.I found myself laughing at loud many times.And so did my whole family.Spede movies are great fun for the whole family.I have watched these movies with my family since I was a kid so I was very sad when I heard three years ago that Spede Pasanen has died.He was a great comedian.Sort of like Finnish Jerry Lewis.I could say Finnish comedy movies were funnier in general in the old days than they are now.Just take a look at this movie.I mean, when you see Spede singing his hilarious song, you can't do nothing but laugh.
