Starring Paul Douglas, Alex MacKenzie and James Copeland.
When you're the skipper of an old decrepit puffer boat chugging between the islands of the West Highlands of Scotland, life is tough. Cargo is hard to find and there is barely enough money to pay the crew, let alone carry out repairs.
It looks as if 'The Maggie' is destined for the scrapyard until an American shipping company accidentaly awards the puffer boat a valuable contract. When the mistake is discoverd, the head of the company himself decides to put things right. Calvin B. Marshall is a first rate hustler but the puffer crew outsmart him at every turn to keep their contract. Then the little ship is threatened with disaster and their American antagonist is faced with a life-changing decision.
Filmed amid stunning scenery THE MAGGIE is one of Ealing Studio's forgotten gems, a literate, charming and thoroughly British comedy with a first rate story.
