HIGH SIERRA) and eventually to tension and backstabbing between the two partners when they steal $80k of the money.
It might not be action-packed, but PRIVATE HELL 36 is still a great little film. The acting is top-notch. The story is interesting and hard-boiled. The direction by Don Siegel - who'd later go on to direct four Eastwood flicks- is excellent with numerous scenes shot on city streets and a 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. Would be a great double feature with ARMORED CAR ROBBERY.
