NOIR CITY 19: They Tried to Warn Us! THE KILLER THAT STALKED NEW YORK
3:00
THE KILLER THAT STALKED NEW YORK

1950, Columbia Pictures [Sony Pictures Classics]. 79 minutes
Screenplay by Harry Essex, from a Cosmopolitan magazine article by Milton Lehman
Produced by Robert Cohn
Directed by Earl McEvoy

Petty crook Matt Krane (Charles Korvin) returns to New York City from Cuba, using his girlfriend, Sheila (Evelyn Keyes), as a mule to smuggle $40,000 worth of diamonds. What he doesn't realize is that Sheila is carrying something more dangerous: smallpox. What Sheila doesn't realize is that Matt plans on double-crossing her and running away with her sister Francie and the jewels. Sheila must elude the police to exact revenge on the two-timing louse, but with every step she threatens to unleash an epidemic that could infect eight million people. This fictionalized version of a true story was until recently an antiquated curio, a campy time capsule of an earlier era. Well, nobody's laughing now. Part suspenseful crime thriller, part public service announcement, The Killer That Stalked New York, beautifully filmed by the great Joseph Biroc, recalls a bygone America where citizens trusted each other, the government, and miracles of modern science.

CAST: Evelyn Keyes (Sheila Bennet), Charles Korvin (Matt Krane), William Bishop (Dr. Ben Wood), Dorothy Malone (Alice Lorie), Lola Albright (Francie Bennet), Barry Kelley (treasury agent Johnson), Carl Benton Reid (health commissioner Ellis), Ludwig Donath (Dr. Cooper), Art Smith (Anthony Moss), Whit Bissell (Sid Bennet), Roy Roberts (mayor), Jim Backus (Willie Dennis), Peter Brocco (wino), Richard Egan (treasurey agent Owney), Billy Gray (Pinkie), Peter Virgo (Joe Dominic), Reed Hadley (narrator)
