Just a shame Kazan turned out to be an untrustworthy weasel. Ah well.

This movie is by far the best movie made in New Orleans...great time capsule to see the city way back then...of course not much has changed. Kazan shot in the city and used lots of locals not only as extras but in small speaking parts to get that authentic new orleans feel...wonder if this help inspire him to make "Streetcar" the next year. Great film...good choice Quint.

I'll be adding this one to my queue. Have no idea when I'll watch them all, though.

I mentioned it in a n earlier TB, but I will mention "The Killer That Stalked New York". It is the b-movie version of Panic in the Streets, staring Evelyn Keyes and makes a very good double feature with this.

Well said Quint. You can see the influence of the style of this movie throughout 70's cinema. Everything feels REAL, everything moves (If that make sense) the camera work...very French Connection. And the waterfront is almost its own character.

I agree entirely about "The Killer that Stalked New York"; those two together would make for a great night of cinema.
