This is one of the best movies made in Sweden during WW2. It's just so much fun and with an all-star cast and Hildebrand in charge how could it not be? It's just one of the many collaborations of Hildebrand/Söderblom/Modéen/Botvid where-in Hildebrand directed the other three and often other celebrated comedic actors of the time. His first shot to fame was of course with 'Pensionat Paradiset'(1937) - a film that created a whole new genre in Scandinavian film-making and was quite amusing at that...
'Lilla Helgonet' is hilarious and boasts great performances from all its cast. I think they must have had fun shooting it and it shows off in their acting, apparently Hildebrand also knew how to bring out the best in all of them. It's well worth watching, many times over...
