Review

Rating: 2 out of 5.

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.
