Synopsis

Watch: Panic in the Streets 1950 123movies, Full Movie Online – When a body is found in the New Orleans docks, it’s pretty obvious that he died from gun shot wounds. The police surgeon notices that the man is also displaying other symptoms and Lt. Commander Clint Reed, a doctor with the U.S. Public Health Service, diagnoses a highly contagious disease, pneumonic plague. He tries to convince local officials to find everyone who may have been in contact with the dead man. The Mayor supports his efforts but many, including the police, are doubtful. Reed wants to avoid publicity so as not to panic the public. They have little information to go on – they don’t know the dead man’s identity – and Reed estimates they have 48 hours before disease begins to spread. With police Capt. Tom Warren going through the motions, Reed sets out to find the killers..
Plot: One night in the New Orleans slums, vicious hoodlum Blackie and his friends kill an illegal immigrant who won too much in a card game. The next morning, Dr. Clint Reed of the Public Health Service confirms the dead man had pneumonic plague. To prevent a catastrophic epidemic, Clint must find and inoculate the killers and their associates, with the reluctant aid of police captain Tom Warren, despite official skepticism, and in total secrecy, lest panic empties the city. Can a doctor turn detective? He has 48 hours to try.

excellent drama
When plague breaks out in New Orleans, it’s Richard Widmark to the rescue in “Panic in the Streets,” one of the lesser-celebrated films of the great Elia Kazan. Kazan keeps the pace brisk, and there are lots of marvelous touches – the scenes between Widmark and Barbara Bel Geddes, who plays his wife and the scene in the police station show family life and work life and the relationships of average citizens, which is in sharp contrast to the lives and relationships of the low-lifes, portrayed by a menacing Jack Palance, his weak yes man, Zero Mostel, Tommy Cook, and Louis Charles. There are also some interesting visuals – Palance has a couple of scenes with actors who seem to come up to his knees in height.

The acting is marvelous and the dialogue sharp if the story isn’t quite up to the direction and performances. It has a few questionable aspects which will be spotted by the viewer quite easily. That aside, it’s well worth viewing. Kazan was a masterful director.

“Keep asking questions Doc, you finally get answers.”
Not every black and white melodrama from the Fifties needs to be considered a noir film; that designation doesn’t work for me here. Nor does the title actually, because there’s really never any panic to speak of except in the feverish race by authorities to find the source of pneumonic plague brought into the country by a stowaway on a cargo ship. For what it is though, there are some intermittent thrills as Dr. Clint Reed (Richard Widmark) and Police Captain Tom Warren (Paul Douglas) combine forces to methodically pinpoint the the cause of the infection and bring those responsible to light.

The one to keep your eyes on here is gangster Blackie, ‘Walter’ Jack Palance in his big screen debut. Almost gangly in comparison to his later film roles, Palance brings a hostile malice to his character that seethes in every scene he’s in. Which made it almost comical to me why he seemed so determined to pin down subordinate Poldi (Guy Thomajan) for some undetermined loot that he thought cousin Kochak smuggled into the country (it turned out to be perfume!). You knew Blackie could play rough, but I never expected to see him throw Poldi over the stairwell with his mother watching – yikes!

Richard Widmark’s character takes charge right from the start after he’s called in from his day off as a naval medical officer. The picture juxtaposes his high pressure job requirements with a serene home life, but he always exhibits an intensity throughout, even as his wife tries to keep him grounded in family responsibilities. Funny, but every time I saw Barbara Bel Geddes I couldn’t help thinking of June Cleaver waiting for Wally and the Beaver to come walking through the door any minute.

The finale was a pretty realistic nail biter considering how Palance, Mostel and Widmark had to maneuver their way around those slick pilings under the warehouse dock. I was expecting one of them to lose their balance and go completely in the drink, and had to wonder whether they did that all in one take. I never doubted Palance’s athleticism though, after watching him maneuver his way up the tow line of the docked ship in port. The film makers really put him through the wringer for his very first picture.
