This is one of a series of notes for A Chronological Biography of Akira Kurosawa.

An alcoholic doctor's determination to cure a gangster of tuberculosis provides a metaphor for the difficulties of post-war reconstruction.

Note: This was Toshiro Mifune's second film. This was the first film that Kurosawa worked on with composer Fumio Hayakawa.
