The Nuthouse (Swedish: Dårskapens hus) is a 1951 Swedish comedy film directed by Hasse Ekman.

Plot summary

During excavations in Stockholm in the year 2248 45,000 feet film from the 1940s by master director Hasse Ekman is found. The material is in disarray but the Society for Ancient Film Research compiles material that is believed to master his artistic intentions.

The story is compiled from several of Hasse Ekman's 40's movies. Among them: Första divisionen, Flames in the Dark, Ombyte av tåg, Excellensen, Kungliga patrasket, Fram för lilla Märta, Lilla Märta kommer tillbaka and Banketten.
