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

- What do you do for a living?

- I'm a singer.

- Eat regularly?

- Mostly on the run.

- Try slowing down for a while.

- It's nothing serious, is it?

No, I don't think so, but see

your own doctor. He'll make some tests.

Meanwhile take this medicine as directed.



Yeah. Tired of worrying about

where people live and how they live

and whether the water

they drink is polluted and...

- I'll buy you a sandwich?

- Can't.

- Have some lab work to finish.

- Even on your own time?

I get my bad habits from you.

You didn't have to promise

to look in on Walda every night either.


- Matt!

- Who is it?

It's me Matt, Sheila.


Hey, hey, let a husband get to his wife.

- Hello, baby.

- Hello.

I hadn't figured on you for a couple of days.

I lost the cop, Matt.

Are you sure?

He may have followed you here.

- He's still waiting at the hotel.

- Matt called me right after he talked to you.

- It's good to be home again.

- Just like old times, the three of us.

Only I'm not sharing

my husband with anybody.

Well, it looks like I'm a crowd.

I'll talk to you tomorrow, Sheila.

Now we can go away.

Are you sure the cop didn't

see you mail those stones?

I was very careful, Matt.

With $50,000 in diamonds,

we can go anywhere we want to

and not worry about a thing.

And you never saw her again

after you brought her up, huh?

No, sir. But I thought she was

up to something, the way she was acting.

How was she acting?

Well, you know, shifty, kind of.

Any idea how she got out?

No, sir. I couldn't say.

All right, you can go.

Spread the word around

to the rest of the boys.

They'll do better to talk now.


- Find anything?

- Nothing we don't already know.

She's a singer, uses an obvious alias

and smuggles diamonds.
