Sapphire (1959)


First rate British thriller telling the story of the dogged search by two C.I.D men to find the killer of a young girl of West Indian blood. Made at the time of hightened racial tension following race riots in London, the screenplay seems a little heavy handed at times getting its message over butl an excellent crime drama all the same.
