What about B films like SHERLOCK HOLMES IN WASHINGTON (1943)..?

Maybe, the author is using that "visual style" that I keep harping about, rather than any checklist approach. There was supposed to be two tables of films US and Brit with the Article but glossing it over I didn't see the links.

I would say The 39 Steps (1935) is a contender also

Yeah. Enjoy one of these 'in-name-only' noirs ("visual-style") and then...maybe saunter down to the local hospital and offer to help out the docs performing heart surgery because ...you've seen pictures of operations... ^_^

"The Thirty-Nine Steps"!?

:blink:

::banging forehead on keyboard::

You're dramatics are quite amusing, get over it, you're coming off as quite the pompous ______

"The Thirty-Nine Steps"!? If it's got the same visual style of the early French Noir's why not.

This one was really unimpressive. Probably my least favorite early Hitchcock.
