Island of Doomed Men is a 1940 American film noir crime film directed by Charles Barton and starring Peter Lorre.


Stephen Danel lures paroled convicts to his isolated island where they are forced to work as slaves for life. Government agent Mark Sheldon (code name 64) allows himself to be convicted of a murder he did not commit so that he can spend time in prison and then be paroled to work on Danel's island. It turns out that Danel's beautiful wife, Lorraine Danel, is a prisoner too.
