Whiskey Galore!
It is 1943 and the tiny remote Hebridean island of Todday is plunged into the depths of despair. Everyone is affected. Spirits are at zero – for Todday is without whisky. Then a ship founders on the rocks, and the islanders guide the crew to safety. The ship’s captain and mate reveal that they had on board a cargo of 50,000 cases of whisky bound for America. Held up for a day because it is the Sabbath, the islanders eventually succeed in removing a considerable amount of the cargo and the dawn breaks with a rosy glow on a brighter, happier island. But the whisky does not last forever… Inspired by a true story.

The Maggie
“Maggie” is one of the fifty-odd puffer boats which chug among the Western Isles of Scotland. Squat, unprepossessing, and badly in need of paint, she is destined for the scrap yard unless her skipper can get her repaired. This seems a forlorn hope – until Mr. Pusey makes his mistake. Mr. Pusey works for the high-pressure American businessman, Calvin B. Marshall, who has a valuable cargo to be shipped to one of the isles. And Mr. Pusey’s disastrous error is in allowing, through a misunderstanding, the cargo to be entrusted to the humble ‘Maggie’ with her crew of four. Originally released in the US as High and Dry.
