The Killer that Stalked New York | Museum of the Gulf Coast

Port Arthur native Evelyn Keyes once starred in a film entitled The Killer that Stalked New York in 1950. Her performance is excellent as a diamond smuggler who unknowingly is spreading smallpox throughout the city of New York. The film is a dramatization of the smallpox outbreak there in 1947. Although largely forgotten now, this black and white, film noir styled movie may see a resurgence in interest due to the amount of time it spends explaining how outbreaks start, how they are spread, the challenges that go with stopping them, and what it looks like when public officials are quick to recognize a health threat and do something about it. What we call “contact tracing” now takes up a large part of the script. Keyes is given the difficult task of starting out ill and becoming even more so in each scene. It is also interesting because it was shot on location in New York, and not on an L.A. backlot. The cinematography, advertised as “shot-on-the-spot,” is remarkable, and the print I viewed had obviously been expertly restored. By the time the story ends, it was apparent that the writer and director were almost as concerned with educating the public as they were with telling a good story. It is currently available on Youtube at no charge. Search for “The Killer that Stalked New York (1950).”
