When Sheila is convinced to go to the clinic, the nurse offers her a glass of water. That would not be done if her temperature had to be taken. It would possibly give a false reading. Plus, any good nurse would have spotted her as "sick" the moment she laid eyes on Sheila. See more »
Dr. Wood was right when he said there was a drive in that girl.

From 1950 comes a neat thriller about a couple smuggling diamonds from abroad and also the contagious disease smallpox. Evelyn Keyes pulls out all stops as the essential victim of this film-noir. Once back in the United States she is not aware that she could be spreading the disease on everyone and everything she comes in contact with. Eventually she is pursued and must be stopped before an epidemic occurs. Other than Keyes striking performance there is good support from villainous Charles Korvin, William Bishop, Dorothy Malone, Lola Albright and Whit Bissell. The finale is a humdinger with Miss Keyes on the ledge of a building with spotlights and hundreds of spectators below. A good B flick!
