100 dragspel och en flicka ("100 Accordions and One Girl") is a Swedish comedy film from 1946 directed by Ragnar Frisk. The film's title is a reference to One Hundred Men and a Girl.[1]


Two inventors, Ville and Rulle (Elof Ahrle and Bengt Logardt) have developed a revolutionary new accordion; however, they have competition. Twelve-year-old Pelle Borell (Anders Nyström) gets to show off the instrument in front of the Swedish accordion elite in Stockholm.


The film was positively received at the time of its release, with Elof Ahrle receiving particular praise. Stockholmstidningen wrote: "Ahrle gets his best comical role in a long time". Aftontidningen wrote: "A film that will go straight into the Swedish people's heart. Elof Ahrle's character has the potential to become a future classic." Expressen gave the film a more negative review, while still praising Ahrle.[1]


The film was first screened in Sundsvall on 31 January 1946.
