Asphalt Jungle 1950


From Amazon: The dark urban world of The Asphalt Jungle is one of the essential destinations in film noir, but be warned: despite tough guy Sterling Hayden's dreams of bucolic escape, there is no way out. John Huston directed this superbly calibrated crime classic, which displays his usual wry appreciation of fringies and down-and-outers. This time the task for Huston's eccentric ensemble is a jewel robbery, which--this being a Huston film--can't possibly work out as well as its plan.

Asphalt Jungle Movie Review by AJ (6/5/2006)

A gritty noir classic, The Asphalt Jungle is a dark, suspenseful film about the planning of a bank heist, the inevitable execution, and the surprising aftermath.
