Emigrants, The Movie Trivia Items

When filming the scene towards the end of The Emigrants, in which Karl Oskar walks off to find a better place for his settlement, director Jan Troell forgot to yell, "Cut." Max von Sydow just kept walking and walking, waiting for a "cut", and nobody realized he was still walking until they took a lunch break.

The Emigrants director Jan Troell and writer Wilhelm Moberg had a disagreement as to whether or not the actors should use dialects. Troell wanted all actors to speak Småländska (the dialect spoken in county Småland where the story takes place) while Moberg wanted no dialects. As a compromise, Karl Oskar and Kristina speak with a dialect, while many of the others, including Robert and Arvid, only speak with a very light accent.
