The film was a Quota quickie made at Nettlefold Studios in Walton-on-Thames by the producer George Smith and distributed by Fox, enabling it to meet the annual quota for handling British films imposed by the government. It was based on a novel by Gordon Phillips. Despite its low budget and short running time the film proved a considerable hit with audiences on its general release.
