Amazon.ca

An amazingly effective film noir action movie, shot on location in New Orleans in 1950, that has twists of plot and explosions of violence that can still make audiences gasp. Elia Kazan, of all people, directed this story of a public health worker (Richard Widmark) and a police detective (Paul Douglas) who have only a few hours in which to capture some fleeing felons who may be infected with the plague. The bad guys are played, with enormous relish, by Jack Palance and Zero Mostel, the latter only a few years before Kazan ratted him out to the House Un-American Activities Committee. In retrospect, this modest crime picture looks like a crucial turning point in the formation of Kazan's distinctive style, a clear precursor to the blistering location work of landmark films like On the Waterfront, Baby Doll, and America, America. --David Chute --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: VHS Tape
This is one of the most unjustly forgotten thrillers of the 1950's, especially considering the talent involved. Widmark and Douglas are both great as the public health official and police officer who are in a literally life-and-death race to locate carriers of pneumonic plague before the disease can hit the general populace of New Orleans. The aftermath of 9/11 has given this fifty-two-year-old thriller an incredible immediacy. The villians are a memorable lot, headed by a young pre-"Shane" Jack Palance and abetted by Zero Mostel. Look for Barbara Bel Geddes ("Dallas") and young Tommy Rettig ("The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T" and "Lassie") as Widmark's wife and son.

The casting in this movie was fantastic. There are parts in this movie that are quite believable. The New Orleans setting adds greatly to this story. This movie is a combination of mystery, action and high emotions.
It is a black and white film, and probably should remain this way to best dramatitize this film. This movie is a prime example of how excellent casting can make or break the effectiveness of a movie.
Even if the story line is not of great interest to you, the acting quality and the filming is a quite a treat.

"Panic in the Streets" is a great film for who stars in it as well as where it is filmed. The film is made without use of studio sets. It was filmed on location, interiors and exteriors in New Orleans. Jack Palance is at his evil best as "Blackie". Because this was filmed inside and out on location, it's a true slice of life from the early 50's. ENJOY.

This is a picture about a man (Jack Palance) smuggled off of a ship and has the plague.
A polieceman and a doctor (Paul Douglas and Richard Widmark) have their work cut out as they search high and low through the streets of New Orleans to contain the disease and catch Palance before everything gets out of hand.
Acting,music and directing are all fives.

Not a bad story, but not much panic, and not as exciting as I thought it would be.
