On This Day...Crisis (1950)

Crisis was Cary Grant's 55th full length feature film.

Grant plays a famous brain surgeon who, along with his wife, is kidnapped.
He is told to operate on a sick dictator, Raoul Farrago, played by Jose Ferrer.
The good doctor is then told he must kill Farrago, whilst on the operating table!

With Paula Raymond.

With Paula Raymond and Jose Ferrer.

"Crisis is a bold piece of movie adventuring...Grant is more brittle and more diamond-brilliant than before as the enlightened doctor. His sincerity in the story's guts is its premise for being believed." 
- The Mirror (Los Angeles)

With Jose Ferrer (Lying on the floor).

With Ramon Novarro, Paula Raymond and Leon Ames.
