Pretty Much 100% Scandinavian Saga 2

$ 19.99

A lighthearted exploration of the humor that has tickled the funny-bones of Scendinavian Americans from the immigrant Swedish American vaudevillian "Olle i Skratthult" to contemporaries such as Norwegian Americans Leroy Larson and Art Lee, Swedish American Merrilyn Belgum, and a variety of nighborhood joke-tellers tracing roots to Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden.

Stefan Quinth, world renowned Swedish filmmaker, and Dr. William Beyer, former education, collections, and programs director for the American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis, have teamed up to create this ramble through Scandinavian Minnesota, and bit into neighboring states. This is the second in a series of films about contemporary Scandinavian America.
