Blue Parrot (1953)

I caught this Brit flick at the gym the other night. An American detective works with Scotland Yard to investigate a murder at a Soho nightclub. You know what I love about these British crime dramas? They have the Noir elements of American films that I love so much, combined with that British sense of style. You get the shiny cards, slick wet nocturnal streets, and the detective in an impeccable trench coat.

I love those dark elements and I love the British sensibility in these. Plus, at just over an hour, it was the perfect length for the gym and the perfect movie for a rainy night.
