Written and directed by Ragner Hylten-Cavalius, Klockorna I Gamia Sta'n was the first Swedish film to be lensed in color. The title translates as The Bells in Old Town, a reference to the "old" section of modern Stockholm. The story is a mosaic of the lives and loves of the denizens of Old Town, with some stories culminating happily, others not so happily. For ideal color reproduction, director Hylten-Cavalius enlisted the services of Paramount's Technicolor specialist James B. Shackleford, who worked in close harmony with Sweden's own Olle Nordemar. It was the color angle, rather than the film's rather banal storyline, which proved to be the biggest selling card of Klockorna I Gamia Sta'n.
