Widower and single dad, oil company executive Bob Holcomb (Bob Hope, The Road to Hong Kong) accepts a transfer to Sweden in hopes of keeping his daughter JoJo (Tuesday Weld, Pretty Poison) far away from her carefree, guitar-playing, marriage-minded boyfriend Kenny (Frankie Avalon, Beach Blanket Bingo). Little does Bob know that Sweden provides a more liberal view of all things romantic. So, it’s out of the frying pan and into the fire. But JoJo isn’t the only one with romance on her mind when Bob meets attractive interior designer Karin (Dina Merrill, Operation Petticoat). Plans for a romantic mountain resort weekend will turn into a slapstick roundelay when Kenny turns up with former girlfriend Marti (Rosemarie Frankland, A Hard Day’s Night) and Bob’s assistant Erik (Jeremy Slate, Girls! Girls! Girls!), a wolf in sheep’s clothing, sets his sights on JoJo. The Land of the Midnight Sun will never be the same when Bob Hope and crew land on her shores in the romantic comedy I’ll Take Sweden.
Directed by Frederick De Cordova (Bedtime for Bonzo) from a screenplay by Nat Perrin (based on a story by Perrin, Bob Fisher and Arthur Marx), I’ll Take Sweden co-stars Fay DeWitt (The Shakiest Gun in the West), Walter Sande (To Have and Have Not) and John Qualen (Casablanca).
