Plot & Details
Karl for Sin Hatt (The Man of the Forest) was the brainchild of the prolific Hasse Ekman, who wrote both screenplay and story. Adolf Jahr essays the title character, a roughneck lumberjack named Ole Hansson. When beautiful heiress Gun (Birgit Tengroth) gets lost during a snowstorm, she takes refuge in Ole's humble shack. Falling in love with Ole, Gun takes him back with her to the big city (Stockholm, that is) to meet her family and become accustomed to the ways of civilization. In other words, it's Crocodile Dundee, Swedish style. Emil Fjellstrom performs the comedy-relief duties as the heroine's gouty-but-lovable uncle.
