Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Filmed in the Philippines, No Place to Hide effectively juxtaposes the innocence of children with the horror of a potential plague. The kids (Hugh Corcoran, Ika Jariega Jr.) find themselves in the possession of a handful of pretty colored pellets. They take off on a hike through the city and countryside, intending somewhere along the way to open their pellets and see what treasures lie therein. Meanwhile, the authorities, aware that those pellets contain disease-carrying chemicals, frantically conduct a search for the missing kids. This 1955 film bears no relation to the 1991 No Place to Hide, a cop miller starring Kris Kristofferson and Drew Barrymore.
