Full movie description "The Blue Parrot":A British film noir featuring John Le Mesurier giving a superbly understated performance in, for him, a non-typical role as a shady Soho nightclub owner. The film gives the viewer a real feel for the seamier side of Post War London and also features the new ideas and methods involved in crime fighting, including a visit from an American cop. Strong supporting roles from many British actors, mostly known for their comedic roles, including Ballard Berkeley (as Supt. Chester), later famous for his role as 'The Major' in Fawlty Towers. Well-written and directed and with some great twists in the plot, which play away from the typical 50's stereotypical characters of the more mainstream crime films of the period. A real gem!
Reviews of the The Blue ParrotIt isn't for nothing this film has such a low score and, although it might have some academic interest to see some early British actors who later achieved greater fame, it has no intrinsic value to justify more than ten minutes watching it.
The script and direction are virtually non-existent and all the acting (except Richard Pearson) is dire.
The use of an American character, who has no reason to exist other than to attract American budget money, is absurdly not played by an American, and would be scoffed at by American audiences - even more so than Dick van Dyke was in 'Mary Poppins', by British audiences.
And this ersatz 'American' is the worst part of the film. The second worst part is that we have no concern or sympathy for the murdered victim, and wonder why Scotland Yard would even be interested - let alone the FBI as well. One would think this was the only murder the police had had that month.
But the most unbelievable aspect of 'The Blue Parrot' is that anybody in the British film industry at that time would have believed they had a winner on their hands.
Finally, just look at the 2-wall sets: the foyer of the club, for example... and the 1-wall corridor outside 'Annie Oakley's' room...
There is no worthwhile reason to consider viewing this film.
