From the classic Ealing Comedy “Whisky Galore!”, Gordon Jackson & Morland Graham, with whisky bottle crates, pair of stylish pop art prints.
A classic comedy, very much rooted in its Scottish location but appealing to cinemagoers worldwide, “Whisky Galore!” tells the story, apparently based on true events, of a fictional Scottish island in the Outer Hebrides that has run dry of whisky but whose inhabitants are gifted a shipwreck carrying 50,000 cases of the spirit.
With opposition from the local law enforcers, the islanders plot to salvage and hide the drink. Like other Ealing comedies, “Whisky Galore!” presents the tale of the small underdog battling a larger enemy, in this case the state bureaucracy of the Home Guard & customs officials.
The film opened in two London cinemas on June 16th 1949, the Haymarket Gaumont & the Marble Arch Pavilion.
