Coming Soon

Possibly the best crime drama ever filmed, this taut, gritty caper begins with a meticulously planned robbery executed with clockwork precision. But bit by bit, unanticipated events and the criminals' character flaws begin to unravel a seemingly perfect heist. Starring Sterling Hayden, Jean Hagen, Louis Calhern and Sam Jaffe and based on W.R. Burnett's novel, The Asphalt Jungle received Academy Award nominations for Best Director (John Huston, The African Queen), Best Actor in a Leading Role (Jaffe), Best Screenplay (Ben Maddow, John Huston) and Best B&W Cinematography (Harold Rosson). Also of memorable note is a young Marilyn Monroe who is featured in a small, but star-making performance.
