Trivia

Bent Fabricius Bjerre, the composer, told Erik Balling that he couldn't make the overture of Elverhøj fit the musical cues in the storyboards for the famous scene at The Royal Theatre. Balling refused to change the storyboards and told Bjerre to change the overture to match the storyboards. Bjerre was hesitant because he was sure people would notice it and complain about it. Bjerre managed to tweak the overture and never received any complaints about it. See more »

What starts out as an okay entry in the long running Olsen-Banden series that started in 1968, emerges as one of the best, with a climactic heist in the Royal Danish Theatre with our gang blasting and drilling their way through the theatre to obtain the usual McGuffin (The Red Briefcase), set to the tunes of Kuhlau´s "Elverhøj", a cinematic moment of sheer genius, conceived and executed to perfection. That´s actor/director Asbjørn Andersen ("Reptilicus") in a cameo (his last) dressed as King Christian IV of Denmark. ***
