Trivia

Stig Järrel had been very successful as the lead in the farce "Charley's Aunt", which Terrafilm failed to acquire the rights for. Hasse Ekman then supposedly said "If we want Stig in drag we can bring that about ourselves" and came up with the story for this film. See more »

Some 14 years ahead of "Some like it hot"
7 February 1999 | by FoxxSee all my reviews

Stig Järrel, dressed up as a female cellist, is hilarious in this light-weighted comedy. Terrafilms greatest succes ever! *** (out of five)
