The Asphalt Jungle

Huston’s noir masterpiece has inspired countless imitations and was vastly admired by the master of the French gangster thriller Jean-Pierre Melville. Menacing blond hunk Dix Handley teams up with criminal mastermind Doc Riedenschneider who’s just got out of jail but wants to pull off one last job before retiring to the pure air of Mexico.

Set amid the bleak, mean streets and sleazy dives of an anonymous Mid-Western city, The Asphalt Jungle is stunningly photographed from first to last. Marilyn Monroe makes a brief but alluring appearance as the mistress of a double-crossing fence.
