Four-disc set includes:

Whisky Galore! (1949)

From Ealing Studios comes this droll British comedy set during World War II on the Scottish island of Todday, where rationing forces the residents to cope without alcohol. That is, until a shipload of whiskey is stranded just off their shores. The islanders will now have to deal with by-the-book Home Guard official Captain Waggett (Basil Radford) as they try to stage a planned "rescue" run. Catherine Lacey, Bruce Seton, Joan Greenwood also star. AKA: "Tight Little Island." 82 min. BW/Rtg: NR

Passport To Pimlico (1949)

In postwar London, the detonation of unexploded ordnance in Pimlico caused some unanticipated aftershocks--as it unearthed an ancient document declaring that the neighborhood was under the legal rule of Burgundy. The cockeyed efforts of the locals to form their own government, and to deal with the outside pressure from a very unhappy British bureaucracy, fuel this early Ealing Studios romp; Margaret Rutherford, Stanley Holloway, Hermione Baddeley, Paul Dupuis star. 85 min. BW/Rtg: NR

The Titfield Thunderbolt (1953)

When the residents of a remote English village are faced with losing their local train service, they take it upon themselves to challenge British Rail and operate the line--vintage locomotive and all--on their own. This doesn’t sit well with the local entrepreneurs looking to start a bus company, who scheme to sabotage the train ahead of the government’s inspection. Whimsical Ealing Studios comedy stars Stanley Holloway, George Relph, Naunton Wayne, Godfrey Tearle, and Hugh Griffith. 84 min. C/Rtg: NR

The Maggie (1954)

A rapscallious captain (Alex Mackenzie), who skippers his run-down boat the Maggie along the Scottish coast, hatches a scheme to make some fast cash when an American businessman (Paul Douglas) hires him to transport material to his new island home, in this Ealing nautical farce. James Copeland, Hubert Gregg also star. AKA: "High and Dry." 92 min. BW/Rtg: NR
