Torrent description

Temptation seems set to corrupt two detectives when they find stolen cash worth $300,000. Thriller starring and scripted by Ida Lupino, and directed by Don Siegel
Don Siegel made two important films in 1954. Riot In Cell Block 11 was a superb jail-bound story that woke Hollywood up to the fact that this former editor had it in him to make compelling features. Although less widely praised, Private Hell 36 also represented a breakthrough for the two-time Oscar winner. Hired to shoot the film by his good friend the actress, director and writer Ida Lupino, Siegel would have a tough time appeasing his leading lady and her husband and collaborator Collier Young. When he came to write his autobiography, 'A Siegel Film', the man who'd go on to 'make' Clint Eastwood would all but dismiss this early B-picture. Like many an artist before and after him, Siegel was to prove a lousy judge of his own work. Like a Jim Thompson novel made flesh, Private Hell 36 is a cracking crime story centering upon cops Steve Cochran and Howard Duff chancing upon $300,000 in stolen loot. The right thing would be to turn the money over to the authorities, but with this being a film noir and with one of the officers having a high maintenance girlfriend, it's not long before the cash is being stashed in a cabana, the number '36' of the title.

With a typically indomitable performance from Ida Lupino and strong work for the often underrated Dean Jagger, Private Hell 36 is a nice and nasty thriller that recalls the very best things about dime fiction. And if Siegel didn't appreciate the close attention of Lupino and Young, he didn't let it interfere with his filmmaking. For as low-rent as it is, at its best this film prefigures his 1970s crime classic Charley Varrick.One of the great B-movies, Private Hell 36 illustrates how, even when everything was going against him, Don Siegel delivered diverting films.
