Did You Know?
This movie remained almost unseen for 57 years. It was based on a real double murder in 1926, but when the film was set to premiere in 1950 one of the murderers, having served a full sentence, went to court to have the film stopped. In 1954, the Norwegian Supreme Court banned the film. Since then, only a few people have seen the film. However, as of January 31st, 2007, the film will be available to the public. A legal panel reviewed the film and found that it no longer interferes with any persons right of privacy as all those involved has since passed away. Also, the legal panel noted that had the same case gone to trail today, the outcome would most likely have differed, with freedom of speech outweighing the right to privacy. See more
