After the good success of "Vaimoke" (1936) Valentin Vaala decided to order a complete script for screen from its writer Hilja Valtonen. Instead of Ansa Ikonen the leading role went to a new star Tuulikki Paananen who even managed to get to Hollywood one day.
The idea is about the same as last time when our girl has to pretend a marriage with the first man she meets to keep her job. Temperamental Paananen does her job well and so do the others. In the end the tempo speeds up even near the classic screw-balls of the era.
Though Vaalas directing is somewhat clumsy "Mieheke" is still definitely a great piece of face comedy.
