Bootleggers or Moonshiners (Russian: Самогонщики, romanizedSamogonshchiki) is a 1961 Soviet short comedy film directed by Leonid Gaidai.

Plot summary[edit]

The trio of Fool, Coward, and Experienced decides to get rich with the help of their samogon-making apparatus. The making of samogon goes well, and towards the end of their "work shift", they decide to try some of their product. During dinner, they think that someone had approached their izba (concealed in woods with a false "nature reserve" sign to deter people). While the trio is distracted, their dog smashes some bottles of samogon. The dog also takes the condenser coil, and while being chased by the trio, leads them to the militsiya.
