A packed troopship pulls into port. George Harper (George Formby) is back in Blighty and just itching to get on with his life. After being de-mobbed, he and his dodgy pal Fingers (Ronald Shiner) head for George's family pub, The Unicorn, in the idyllic country village of Tumbleford.
The Unicorn has seen better days. The other pub in the village, The Lion, has stolen all the trade and now an unscrupulous banker and his crony are out to get George to sell up - by fair means or foul. Worse still, The Lion's landlord wants to force George out too - because he's got designs on George's childhood sweetheart Mary (Rosalyn Boulter). Can George save his beloved pub...and will it 'all turn out nice again' one last time?
A firm favourite with Formby fans and featuring the legendary Alice In Wonderland dream sequence, George In Civvy Street is a real treat with no less than six songs from the Ukulele Man - We've Been A Long Time Gone, I Was Christened With A Horseshoe, It Could Be, You Don't Need them, The Mad March Hare and I Won't Need A Licence For That.
