City in Danger

Shot on location, Panic in the Streets is a superior Noir, not only for the Richard Widmark's turn as a good guy, and Jack Palance as a heavy, but the layer added by the danger of a plague getting loose in the city. Did I mention the location shooting? If you are liking Treme these days take a look back and see what the city looked like in 1950.
