    A Highland fling on a tight little island
    Certificate: PG
    Running Time: 79 mins
    Retail Price: £5.99
    Release Date:

    Filmed at Barra in the outer Hebrides, Whisky Galore was based upon a true incident, the foundering of a cargo ship off the Isle Of Eriskay with 50,000 cases of Scotch aboard.

    The Scottish islanders of Todday by-pass war time rationing and delight in smuggling cases of their favourite tipple from the wrecked ship. Basil Radford stars as the teetotal English official, who is totally unable to comprehend the significance of whisky to the islanders.

    Marvellously detailed and well played, it firmly established the richest Ealing vein with the common theme of a small group triumphing over a more powerful opponent.
