    Both of the Basil Deardin Brit noirs that Kino released, this one and Pool of London are great watches, and so different from the American noirs of the same time frame.

    *** 1st Annual HTF Noirvember Physical Media Challenge***

    I know the feeling myself, and the abbreviated date is a flexible "gray" area, that has been changed to incorporate the whole month.
