Format: Blu-ray
Solidly Siegel?

No, not really.

Two detectives, Jack Farnham and Cal Bruner are deeply investigating a robbery in which $300,000 was stolen. As their investigation progresses, they, by way of a sultry woman called Lilli Marlowe, manage to find the perp and recover the cash. But Bruner has fallen for Marlowe, and realising she has expensive tastes and that his police salary can not sustain the relationship, he ponders turning to the dark side, with Farnham equally at odds with himself over the pressures of raising a family.

Is Private Hell 36 a Noir film? Well I'm no paid expert on the subject but it certainly has all the ingredients in place. Yet the film, in spite of some watchable attributes, is a largely character driven talky piece of fluff that isn't really raising the bar in film noir. Or, in fact, crime picture history. Certainly it's not a film that screams out that it was directed by Don Siegel. It's a solid premise to work from, and in Ida Lupino (Marlowe) and the great Steve Cochran (Bruner), the picture boasts two very fine performances, with each actor giving the film its emotional weight. A nod of approval also goes to the scoring of the piece by Leith Stevens, as jazzy blues like combos flit in and out to create an ear worthy alliance as our detectives battle with their very conscience. All things considered it's an enjoyable enough piece, but one that fades very quick from the memory. Solid if unspectacular, and reliable if lacking in any major amount of thrills and brain tickling plotting. 5/10

"I can't look in the mirror without gagging." 4 July 2005
By Dymon Enlow - Published on Amazon.com
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)

"lupino and Cochran at their NOIR best!" 19 May 2008
By Dan Celli,X,DJ.Cartoonist/Author - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
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.

A Worthwhile Curiosity 31 Dec 2012
By Barry Lane - 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.

STILL HOLDS UP 13 April 2014

Excellent copy. This noir still holds up with the best of them. For fans of the genre, it doesn't get much better.
Wanting a Piece of the Pie 15 Sep 2014
By Phyllis Le Chat - Published on Amazon.com
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.
