The soundtrack was composed by Francis Chagrin, conducted by Muir Mathieson.
The story, adapted from a 1949 novel by Robin Maugham The Line on Ginger, which tells of a commanding officer of a 2nd World War British tank regiment who is burgled by a former soldier who had fought under his command. The officer sets out to discover why one of his best men became involved in crime after he was de-mobbed. This is reflected in several flash-back episodes in which events during the war are contrasted with how each of the main characters cope with life in civvy street.
Post-war London is the backdrop including Belgravia, Covent Garden market, Loughborough Junction and the Dulwich Hospital.
A contemporary critic commented that the film treated the subject "with intelligence, taste, and a feeling for the medium"; he also wrote "Medwin... gives a brilliant study of a good fellow gone wrong".
