(CBS, 1/7/1972, 120 mins). A doctor’s battle to stem a diphtheria outbreak puts him in conflict with a police captain who is using all his manpower to track down a cop killer. Many elements of this one revive memories of Elia Kazan’s stunning “Panic in the Street” (1950). The original title until the eve of airing: “The City by Night.”
