Country boy Mikko Syvärivi lands a job as a floor manager at the TV studios in Helsinki. He finds no place to stay in the capital, so he works as night guard. Ambitious Mikko writes some material of his own, but becomes an instant TV success after failing comically in a small role, which leads to a series of TV shows based on slapstick door tricks. But when he decides to raise his act onto a new level - window tricks! - his ratings plummet and the show is put off the air. Love and money fly out the window too, but Mikko won't give up easily. Written by Markku Kuoppamäki

Spede Pasanen, a great humorist

Mikko Syvärivi is an organizer for Yleisradio.He fantasizes of becoming a comedian, like his idol Simo Salminen.And soon he gets his chance.He becomes a comedian that calls himself K. Mikko Ovimikko, and he specializes on gags done with doors.Näköradiomiehen Ihmeelliset Siekailut (1969) is directed by Ere Kokkonen.Its written by Ere, Spede Pasanen and Jukka Virtanen.Jaakko Salo is behind the music.Pasanen is terrific in the lead.Vesa-Matti Loiri is hilarious as Antti Vasa.Leo Jokela sure made me laugh as Iivari Päreistöniemi.Tarja-Tuulikki Tarsala is wonderful as Mikko's love interest Sirkku.Simo Salminen is great portraying himself.You've got to like Veikko Sinisalo as Poliisi.Tamara Lund is very fine as Ester.Spede's ex-wife, Pirjo Pasanen, plays Liisa.Marjatta Rinne is Raija.Mirjam Himberg and Juhani Kumpulainen are Mikko's parents.Irja Seikkula is Opettaja.Jukka Virtanen portrays Ohjaaja.Aarre Elo plays Head of Entertainment Department.Rally driver Timo Mäkinen is seen driving fast.Cinematographer Kari Sohlberg is Mies Kadulla.Juha Watt Vainio is seen as Ölman.Danny gets to sing a song.Teija Sopanen gets to announce on TV.Spede, who passed away ten years ago, shows us in this movie what a great humorist he was.I found myself laughing out loud several times.I just started reading the man's autobiography from 2002, written by Tommi Autio.I also bought today another fantastic film of his, Pähkähullu Suomi.That movie, and this are two comic gems of the 60's. In this one Spede gets to prove his acting skills in the scenes that show the downfall of the comic.You know, when he wants to move on doing window comedy.I found it hilarious how Spede laughs every time he sees Simo.And Simo draws a caricature of a serious comedian, who's funny only on TV.Spede writing a mystery story is very funny.Mikko's folks back home is a riot to watch.They seem like taken from the 19th century, but with a TV set.Mikko's first appearance on TV is a lot of fun.There's a good spirit in this movie.It brings you in a good mood.And isn't that the task of a comedy movie?
