The Blue Parrot

The Blue Parrot

John Harlow (1953)

A Certificate


Our Score
This is about as original as its title, which irresistibly recalls the Graham Greene-inspired thriller The Green Cockatoo. The budget was clearly tight, and the story of an American cop who solves a case and falls for a pretty English girl while on secondment to Scotland Yard is hardly riveting stuff. Dermot Walsh does his best with some lacklustre material, and John Le Mesurier turns up in a supporting slot, but there's little else here to recommend.


A murder occurs in a nightclub, so the establishment's hostess and her boyfriend go in search of the killer. Crime drama, starring Dermot Walsh and Jacqueline Hill.
