the great Eva Dahlbeck (March 8, 1920-February 8, 2008), as the actress Desiree Armfeldt, has a visit with her mother (played by Naima Wifstrand) trading ripostes in an almost Wildean manner.

Eva Dahlbeck attended the Royal Dramatic Theatre (Dramatens elevskola) in 1941-44, then had many triumphs on stage and screen. She retired from acting years ago to write.

Naima Wifstrand grew up very poor, but the shop owner who employed the young girl pushed her to follow her dreams. She eventually had quite a career on the stage in operetta and plays , both in Sweden and London. Bertolt Brecht wrote Mother Courage for her.

Original Music by Erik Nordgren

Sommarnattens leende (1955). Written by Ingmar Bergman
