The movie was shot and filmed in Nazi occupied Norway. It was early in the war and the occupational forces were not as strict as they became later in the war when the German political commissioner Josef Terboven's "bullying tactics" (as Josef Goebbels described them) got a much firmer grip on Norway. The lead actor Leif Juster was later imprisoned by the Gestapo for mocking the occupational forces on stage. See more »
Apparently inspired by the escapades of the American comedy team Laurel and Hardy, DEN FORSVUNDNE PØLSEMAKER teams up two of the most celebrated Norwegian comedians of their time, Leif Juster and Ernst Diesen, as detectives in search of a sausage-maker who has mysteriously disappeared. The film made Juster, already a well-known stage presence, into a household name also among movie audiences, and holds up well to this day. One part may be said to even be iconic: Juster's frustrated "song about the disappeared sausage-maker," which is often thought of as the thing most freuently associated with him to this day.
To illustrate how big the film was upon its initial release, I could mention that my father, a small boy at that time, claims to have literally cried when he arrived too late for tickets! His own father had promised to take him along to the film, but had to postpone it several times; and when they finally did go, all seats were taken.
