KILLER THAT STALKED NEW YORK, THE
Sheila Bennet (Evelyn Keyes) arrives in the metropolis from Cuba with a cache of smuggled diamonds and an incurable smallpox virus. She mails the diamonds to her unfaithful husband (Charles Korvin), who can't fence them because they're too hot. The wilting villainess spreads smallpox throughout the city while the authorities simultaneously seek the source of the epidemic and the smuggler of the diamonds, not knowing that they are in fact the same woman. The film finds its unlikely heroes in a street-smart Treasury Department Agent (Barry Kelley) and a dashing public health doctor (William Bishop). With an obscure premise that seems eerily contemporary, director Earl McEvoy's Cold War artifact employs one of the stranger femme fatale characters of the genre. (Note courtesy of Noir City.) DIR Earl McEvoy; SCR Harry Essex, from a story by Milton Lehman; PROD Robert Cohn. U.S., 1950, b&w, 79 min. NOT RATED
