Whisky Galore! review

Spirits are low in this 1949 Ealing classic in more ways than one: on the Hebridean island of Todday, the whisky has run out and glum faces are everywhere.

When a ship laden with booze is wrecked off the coast, the parched islanders scramble to salvage what they can.

Standing in their way is the Sassenach captain of the local Home Guard (Basil Radford, blustering brilliantly) who calls in the revenue inspectors to investigate.

A whimsical tale of Celtic self-reliance vs English stuffiness, this wee comedy dram warms the heart as surely as a blended malt.
