Sapphire (1959)

A college student named Sapphire Robbins is murdered in London's Hampstead Heath. When police superintendent Robert Hazard discovers that the victim was a light-skinned black woman passing as white, it upends his initial assumptions. Hazard and his openly racist assistant explore the city's racially tense underground jazz scene as they interview suspects, including Sapphire's white fiancé.
