Not to be missed Whisky Galore! is a 1949 British comedy film produced by Ealing Studios The story, based on a true event, concerns a shipwreck off a fictional Scottish island, the inhabitants of which have run out of whisky because of wartime rationing. The islanders find out the ship is carrying 50,000 cases of whisky, some of which they salvage, against the opposition of the local Customs and Excise men. Like other Ealing comedies, the film explores the actions of a small insular group facing and overcoming a more powerful opponent. An unspoken sense of community runs through the film.
