This review is from: The Maggie [DVD] (DVD)
This wee film is "chust sublime" to quote the best known "Pufferman" of all. It describes the antics of the crew of an old boat in need of refit and the shifts the Skipper is put to. Alex MacKenzie's portrayal of the Skipper and Paul Douglas's of the American superbly demonstrate their differing thought processes. His (Douglas's) total incomprehension at the machinations of MacKenzie is perfect.
Most people will probably be unaware that the incident of the boat stuck on the Subway is, I believe, based on Warnock's "Faithful" doing just that! Then there is the "Birthday Party", with, if you listen carefully, telegrams from all around the world, a delightful touch and a not uncommon occurrence. Truly " a graand fillum" of a quieter and gentler time.
