Overview
You have a lot of time to think when you're locked away seven years. So criminal mastermind Doc conceives what he believes is the perfect heist.

As in The Maltese Falcon and The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, director John Huston explores the feverish grab for the big score and how it unravels in The Asphalt Jungle, a renowned tale of dishonour among thieves whose cast includes Sam Jaffe as Doc and Sterling Hayden as Doc's unflappable gunsel. Louis Calhern portrays Emmerich, the shady lawyer for whom "crime is only a left-handed form of human endeavour". And rising star Marilyn Monroe grabs everyone's attention as the doxie who briefly provides Emmerich with the most gorgeous alibi ever to reach the screen. Welcome to the jungle, film-noir fans!
