Cary Grant 's utter credibility in the role of a brilliant, world-famous brain surgeon Dr. Eugene Norland Ferguson is the single element that keeps Crisis afloat. While vacationing in a politically unstable Latin American country, Ferguson and his wife, Helen ( Paula Raymond ), find themselves the unwilling house guests of dictator Raoul Farrago ( José Ferrer ). Suffering from a brain tumor, Farrago insists that Ferguson operate at once. The "crisis" of the title arises when revolutionary leader Gonzales ( Gilbert Roland ) demands that Farrago be killed on the operating table -- and kidnaps Dr. Ferguson 's wife to bind the bargain. Unaware of his wife's plight, Ferguson proceeds with the operation, setting into motion a series of events leading to a grimly ironic denouement. Director Richard Brooks adapted the screenplay of Crisis from a story by George Tabori . ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
