Based on a true event of the stranding of the SS“Politician” it’s a tale of wily islanders versus the state with the latter represented by HM Customs and personified by Basil Radford. A much loved classic from Ealing Studios starring Basil Radford and Joan Greenwood. The real story is much darker but Compton Mackenzie’s screenplay is more whimsical as would be expected from Ealing Studios. This original version can be compared with the 2016 remake to be shown by Tullynessle Hall on 17th. Nov.
