It turns out that English cinema snatched up
"The Silver Darlings" and hurried to make a film out of it.
Novelist Neil M. Gunn assisted with the adaptation.
The film can be looked up on the Internet Movie Data Base.
Like the novel, the film was before 1950.

Don't know if the film met with success at the time,
but it seems to have sunk into oblivion since.

Perhaps a fresh attempt at filming it is in order,
working from the stage adaptation?

As for Neil M. Gunn's novel,
there's no shortage of second-hand copies for sale online,
and English publisher Faber & Faber
have since reissued the book in both hardcover and paperback.
