com­edy ⊲ This whim­si­cal Eal­ing com­edy, a big hit in its day (as was its theme mu­sic), still proves as re­fresh­ing as a dram of fresh air. Paul Dou­glas is a delight as the pushy Amer­i­can busi­ness­man who falls foul of an old puffer boat and her crew of ras­cally Scot­tish sea­men. Di­rected by Alexan­der Mack­endrick, who made six of the best Eal­ing films but per­formed dis­ap­point­ingly else­where.

Dir: Alexan­der Mack­endrick 1953, U, 85min
