HASH(0x9f36bec4) out of 5 stars "I can't look in the mirror without gagging." July 4 2005
By Dymon Enlow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape Verified Purchase
Would make a perfect double feature with DOUBLE INDEMNITY.

A man in NYC is murdered and robbed of $300,000 in marked money. A year later some of the bills start showing up in Los Angeles. Detectives Bruner and Farnum are assigned to follow the money trail. It leads to lounge singer Ida Lupino and eventually tension and backstabbing between the two partners.

It might not be action-packed, but I enjoyed it quite a bit. The acting is top-notch. The story is interesting and hard-boiled. The direction by Don Siegel - who'd later go on to direct DIRTY HARRY- is excellent with numerous scenes shot on city streets and the horse track (I loved watching the crowd and seeing the old cars). Any fan of classic film noir and older crime movies should have this in their collection. If it came out on DVD I'd buy it in a second.

D: Don Siegel (THE KILLERS, INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS)

Lilli Marlowe - Ida Lupino (THEY DRIVE BY NIGHT, HIGH SIERRA)

Cal Bruner - Steve Cochran (WHITE HEAT, THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES)

Jack Farnham - Howard Duff (BRUTE FORCE, THE NAKED CITY)

Captain Michaels - Dean Jagger (ELMER GANTRY, BAD DAY AT BLACK ROCK)

Francey Farnham - Dorothy Malone (BASIC INSTINCT, THE BIG SLEEP)

Sam Marvin, bartender - Dabbs Greer (THE GREEN MILE, INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS)

HASH(0x9f327a8c) out of 5 stars A Worthwhile Curiosity Dec 31 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Ida Lupino co-authored the screenplay, co-produced the film and is the only reason to get on board with this underproduced and dully directed picture. It is enough. She is alluring and dynamic holding not only the screen but the entire picture together. The supporting cast, Steve Cochran, Howard Duff and Dean Jagger are all more than adequate in their perfunctory way. Dorothy Malone, co-starred but barely in the picture, registers in her brief part as Duff's on-screen wife. The Blu Ray presentation is satisfactory but not more than that.

HASH(0x9f3273cc) out of 5 stars "You Dirty Little Cop!"... Dec 22 2014
By Bindy Sue Frønkünschtein - Published on Amazon.com
While investigating a robbery, detectives Cal Bruner (Steve Cochran) and Jack Farnham (Howard Duff) attempt to track down the man who used a certain $50 bill. This bill came from a previous robbery and murder. Bruner and Farnham enlist the help of Lilli Marlowe (Ida Lupino), a woman who received the fateful fifty as a tip from the killer at a local bar. This leads the detectives to stake out a horse track. It also leads to romance for Bruner and Marlowe! The stake-out pays off when the prime suspect shows up and leads our heroes on a chase, resulting in the crook's fatal crash. The two cops soon discover that the assailant's wrecked car is loaded w/ stolen money! Bruner decides to help himself to several stacks of the illegal tender, while Farnham wants to do the right thing and turn it in. A moral dilemma ensues. Farnham feels the pressure to share in the money, since his wife (Dorothy Malone) has been hassling him to get a less dangerous job. Plus, they've got a new baby to support. Of course, his conscience won't allow him to do anything so criminal. Meanwhile, Bruner seems blissfully unaffected by guilt or concern. The tension builds between Bruner and Farnham, leading to an inevitable conclusion. PRIVATE HELL 36 is a fable wrapped in a cops 'n' robbers veneer. Co-stars Dean Jagger as Captain Michaels. Well worth a watch...

HASH(0x9f327c30) out of 5 stars Good minor noir Oct. 25 2015
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Good minor noir. Ida Lupino shines throughout. What comes through is what an intelligent actress she was. It is no surprise that she excelled as a director and screenwriter in other noir features. She definitely was a pioneer for women in Hollywood. The other actors in the film were very good. The theme of corrupt cops is a touchy subject that was often handled very well in films in the 1940's and 1050's. Somehow today we have become very timid as a culture in acknowledging that criminal behavior and corruption exist in our nation's police force. I'm not sure this film could be made today. Any criticism of the police today is seen as supporting criminals. As a society, this would be a big mistake. As the film shows, we are all vulnerable to temptation and greed. I wish today we could feel free enough to make these kind of films.
