The award ceremony was a triumph for director Lau Lauritzen, Jr., who had previously, albeit shared with Bodil Ipsen, received the Bodil for Best Danish Film three times: In 1949, for The Viking Watch of the Danish Seaman, in 1951, for Café Paradis (Paradise Cafe), and in 1952, for Det Sande Ansigt (The True Face). For his direction of Farlig Ungdom he took home the award for Best Danish Film for a fourth time, a record that would stand more than forty years until Lars von Trier in 1997 received his fourth Best Danish Film Bodil for Breaking the Waves.
Foreign films were well represented with Rene Clement's Forbidden Games winning the Bodil Award for Best European Film, and Julius Caesar directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz winning the award for Best American Film.
