Whisky Galore And The Maggie. Colin McArthur covers two films, both made by Alexander Mackendrick. Whisky Galore! appeared in 1949 in postwar "austerity Britain", and The Maggie in 1953 when Britain was emerging into relative affluence. Both films are Ealing Studios productions, providing the opportunity to explore this remarkable outfit, and both offer distinct and fascinating representations of Scotland and the Scots.
