Also directed by Alexander Mackendrick is the well-crafted and heart warming comedy The Maggie. Beautifully photographed on location in Scotland, the film tells the story of a skipper who tricks a wealthy American into entrusting him to ship valuable cargo on a dilapidated old puffer boat called The Maggie. The American tycoon realises his mistake and tries to straighten it out, but he is up against the scheming crew of the Maggie who are determined to outwit the American and keep the contract. A thoroughly delightful comedy about the clash of the modern world with antiquated ways of life, The Maggie is one of Ealing Studio’s forgotten treasures and a must-see for fans of the genre.
