This short subject concerns a memo from June 1916 discovered in an attic at Nordisk Film's studios in Valby, Copenhagen, written by General Manager Ole Olsen of Nordisk Films Kompagni to the company's directors. The memo is a dressing-down of the directors; contrary to the assumption that the company was blind to the quality of its films, the memo demonstrates Ole Olsen and the management's concern that quality has declined.
