...and a little later there was Mieheke.They both are from the same year, 1936, and they're both directed and written by the same persons, Valentin Vaala and Hilja Valtonen.Tauno Palo's seen also in this movie.Ansa Ikonen's replaced by the extremely beautiful Tuulikki Paananen in this one, the lady who went to Hollywood.She plays Irmeli Venes who applies for the job as a secretary but finds out they prefer married women.So she lies she's married and makes a total stranger her husband.That stranger is Reino Lahtinen (Palo).All kind of funny stuff comes along as they go on with their little scheme.This is a very good example of old Finnish comedy, a kind of movie they don't make these days.It's of course very well acted.Tuulikki Paananen didn't go to Hollywood for nothing.She's got the talents that are required in the business.Tauno Palo is always great.There's also the beautiful and gifted Regina Linnanheimo in the role of Virma Suokuma.Uuno Laakso is Heikki Markkula, Hilma Jorma plays his wife and their son Ensio is played by Helmer Kaski.There are in smaller roles names like Siiri Angerkoski (Angry woman outside phone booth) and Risto Orko (Manager of Suomi-Filmi).There are plenty of hilarious moments in the film.One of my favorites is where Irmeli and Reino find a big empty house in the middle of nowhere and start playing house.I recommend this movie for all the Suomi-Filmi fans.
