Panic in the Streets

Jumping on the Covid-19 viewing bandwagon here.

Widmark and Palance both great here plus some compelling faces along the way. Love the real locations, particularly the banana/coffee warehouse chase at the end.

Very procedural though, a bit too much as it scantly mounts the dramatic tension/excitement that it needs.

Contrary to the title however, the streets remain free of panic. That’s a little irksome.
