The Killer That Stalked New York

Synopsis: Sheila Bennett returns to New York from Cuba, carrying $40,000 worth of smuggled diamonds...and smallpox, which could start a devastating epidemic in the unprotected city. Treasury agent Johnson loses her but keeps doggedly on the trail; while Public Health doctor Wood searches in vain for the unknown person spreading the deadly disease far and wide. Meanwhile, the increasingly ill Sheila is only concerned with her faithless husband Matt, who plans to abscond with the diamonds...
Director(s): Earl McEvoy
Production: Columbia Pictures

There's somebody waiting downstairs.

- Somebody I don't want to see.

- Freight elevator, out the back way.

My friend might have thought of that, too.

Come on. I know a different way.

- Smart boy.

- Ask anybody. Brainy Danny.

There now.

You'd better come along with me.

- I'll be all right, Officer.

- Will you, now?

Maybe we can get the doctor in the

Health Office here to take a look at you.

I know. The clinic is only supposed to

handle babies and mothers and take x-rays,

but she's an emergency case.


- Feel better?

- Yes, thanks.

I think we'd better let the doctor see you.

Yeah, you'd better, miss.

Well, I'll be getting back to the beat.

- Thanks, Houlihan.

- Not at all. Don't mention it.

Your name?

Agnes. Dean.

- Address?

-621 East 10th.

I'll tell Dr. Wood.

But, Officer, that no parking sign

wasn't here when I drove up.

I'm going to the hospital.

- Is that good?

- In an ambulance.

Great. Gonna get a free ride

in an automobile.

Do you have a little girl?

No. But I wish I did.

Say, that's a mighty big handkerchief

for such a little girl.

Dr. Wood gave me it for when I cough.

It keeps my germs locked up.

- What's your name?

- Walda. That's a pretty pin.

Here, would you like it?

There we are.

But I can take care of her at home.

What about the other kids?

Alec, Timmy, the twins?

Walda's cough is contagious.

That's why the city has hospitals

like Willard Parker.

But she's so little.

She has never been away from home.

She cries so easy.

I'll tell you what. I'll look in on her

myself every night. How's that?

Now, you haven't got a thing to worry about.

Walda's going to be all right.

- Thank you.

- Good night.

- Houlihan brought you a patient.

- Another emergency?

- She fainted.

- All right, send her in.
