Audience Reviews for The Killer That Stalked New York

  • Feb 08, 2021
    With the Covid virus making most of us more sensitive to the vast killing potential of a pandemic, this 1950 movie about a Smallpox outbreak in New York is especially dramatic now more than 70 years later. My problem with the film is the lack of a captivating lead for the role of Dr. Ben Wood. William Bishop is the actor entrusted with the role and he simply fails to pierce through as he tries to track down the carrier of the disease (well played by Evelyn Keyes). Even his nurse (Dorothy Malone) fends off his advances. He's just too dull.

    Overly earnest in the 50's way with Keyes as a modern Typhoid Mary and many scenes really more proclamations than narrative. Still not without its enjoyments including a supporting cast of familiar faces like Connie Gilchrist and Jim Backus.
