Crime melodrama about two sailors in London, an American open to theft and smuggling and an honest Jamaican, and the crooks and girls they know. A jewel theft goes wrong and those involved must decide whether to try to get away or to do the right thing. Superb photography of postwar central London when almost empty of people on a Sunday.
A drama of the river underworld

When you're at the wheel of a ship at night, far at sea and nothing else to do, you think about a lot of things you don't understand. You wonder why one man is born white and another isn't. And how about God himself? What color is he? And the stars seem so close and the world so small in comparison to all the other worlds above you. It doesn't seem to matter so much how we were born.
