This crime drama from the Ealing Studios had a large amount of filming take place in Weymouth. As a consequence, the tracks of the Weymouth tramway are visible in several shots, but no trains feature. The film is based on a story written by Nicholas Monsarrat, which originally appeared in Lilliput magazine in 1952. It was later published in a collection of short stories, The Ship That Died of Shame and other stories, in 1959.
