Panic in the Streets

Elia Kazan USA, 1950

Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Unter Geheimbefehl

A sharply-crafted crime thriller from director Elia Kazan highlighted by intense performances by a top-notch cast, particularly Richard Widmark and a young Jack Palance at their best. A classic, but not quite on the level of some of Kazan's other masterpieces.
