Editorial Reviews

Ida Lupino co-wrote and stars in this classic film noir about a desperate cop (Steve Cochran) straying off the straight-and-narrow, falling for a world-weary lounge singer (Lupino), and betraying his honest partner (Howard Duff). Directed with grim, artful efficiency by Don Siegel (Charley Varrick), Private Hell 36 is a thriller that revels in the claustrophobic tawdriness of its characters and is much smarter and potent than its gears-turning plot first reveals. The stellar cast includes Dean Jagger as the detectives' Captain and Dorothy Malone as Duff's understandably worried wife.

Customer Reviews

Great talent, etc.
Janice
Dorothy Malone stands out as Howard Duff's loving wife - to me, one of the most well acted roles.
Phyllis Le Chat
Too late for Noir.

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)

IDA LUPINO BRINGS HER TOP GAME TO THE SCREEN. HER CHARACTER IS A CYNICAL WORLD WISE WOMAN.
BUT DEEP DOWN IS LOOKING FOR A LOVING RELATIONSHIP WITH A FEW BUCKS THROWN IN FOR GOOD
MEASURE. 2 COP'S FIND STOLEN MONEY, AND ONE OF THEM KEEPS SOME OF IT FOR HIM SELF.
GUESS WHICH ONE IS THE BAD COP? HOWARD DUFF&STEVE COCHRAN PLAY THE 2 COP'S.
THE GREAT DEAN JAGGER IS ALSO IN THIS SPECIAL FILM NOIR.
THIS FILM IS WORTH ADDING TO YOUR NOIR COLLECTION!
P.S. VIDEO BEAT:DVD.

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.

Excellent copy. This noir still holds up with the best of them. For fans of the genre, it doesn't get much better.

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...

Just another pair of detectives, good cop bad cop, one happily married the other...yearning for more. Ida Lupino co-wrote and co-stars in this Drama. Her character makes a reference to Dragnet in one scene, making me smile. She and Cochran are coupled up, fair chemistry. Dorothy Malone stands out as Howard Duff's loving wife - to me, one of the most well acted roles. A bit of a twist at the end, the movie felt brief. Worth watching these actors, not an involved "detective" or even "crime" story, more a sketch of characters reacting to temptation. Nothing deep here, but not film garbage, either.
