SHIELD FOR MURDER
1954, MGM/Park Circus, 82 min, USA, Dir: Edmond O'Brien, Howard Koch

The poster’s tagline says it all: “Dame-Hungry Killer Cop Runs Berserk!” Money-mad dirty cop Barney Nolan (Edmond O’Brien) bumps off a numbers runner and pockets $25,000 for a down payment on his dream house in the ’burbs. A deaf mute who witnessed the crime may force Barney to become a serial killer! Featuring dishy Carolyn Jones. Once again, a crackerjack script from ace crime scribe John C. Higgins, co-directed by O’Brien himself and Howard Koch (BIG HOUSE, USA). NOT ON DVD


PRIVATE HELL 36
1954, BFI, 81 min, USA, Dir: Don Siegel

Ida Lupino co-wrote and stars in this brawny, booze-fueled drama about a desperate cop (Steve Cochran) straying off the straight-and-narrow, falling for a world-weary lounge singer (Lupino) and betraying his partner (Howard Duff). Don Siegel directs the character-driven script with his usual vigor, but this time his patented punch is tempered by Lupino’s more leisurely storytelling style - and the bourbon-soaked performances of a once-vital cast hurtling headlong toward has-been status. NOT ON DVD


No passes accepted.
