A bombshell blonde returns to the Big Apple from Cuba, smuggling diamonds... and smallpox! It's basically Panic in the Streets, but without the star power, action, or budget. But it does a certain Poverty Row charm to it, and a little bit of style. Evelyn Keyes is pretty good in the lead, helped out by the makeup artist who makes her look more and more ragged as her disease rages on, until she looks like walking death and the film's spectacular climax. Some memorable supporting performances as well, including Jim Backus, Whit Bissell, Connie Gilchrist and Charles Korvin... his European accent amusingly slipping through at times. The movie is over-the-top melodramatic, and has a lot of terrific overblown dialogue and narration. Silly, but a load of fun.
