| Professor Masa
A shallow "social" comedy about a conservative professor of social science whose conscience makes him want to know the working class a bit closer, so he becomes a dock worker by night and keeps on lecturing at the university by day. The workers take him as one of their own, and while the conservatives nominate him as their candidate for the minister of one-or-the-other, the dock workers (i.e. the working class) does the same. A bit implausible situation, not helped by the fact that the enthusiastic lady journalist who lodges at the professor's apartment and is overly smitten about the hero of the working class while giving her newspaper an exclusive about him, never even suspects the two are one and the same - because one has a bit of smut on his face, and the other never does.

A very old fashioned comedy of mix up, not terribly interesting or witty. The golden voices of the Finnish cinema, Ansa Ikonen and Tauno Palo don't get to sing a note.

Released as a double feature with their 1948 film "The song of the outskirts" on DVD in Finland.
