Director Elia Kazan broke away from his typical message pictures to make this fast-paced, extremely satisfying melodrama about a trio of low-level thugs (Jack Palance, Zero Mostel, and Guy Thomajan) who may be inadvertent carriers of plague in 1950 New Orleans. Richard Widmark is the hero, with Paul Douglas as a blustery police chief. The climatic foot chase is wonderful to watch. Shows as part of CCA and Santa Fe Institute’s Science on Screen series, with an introduction by epidemiologist Ben Althouse. Not rated. 96 minutes. Center for Contemporary Arts, Santa Fe. See Screen Gems.
