Crisis (1950)

Crisis (1950), directed by Richard Brooks.

A surgeon (Cary Grant) and his wife get caught between a dictator and revolutionaries while vacationing in a Latin American country. The president (José Ferrer) needs a brain tumor removed and the rebels want him dead. Neither side has any scruples.

Well made thriller, but slowly paced. This may add to the tension. Rather cynical resolution to the story.

Miklós Rózsa score.
