Share

July 29, 2012

Program Locations:

Mid-Manhattan Library

Please join us on Sunday, July 29 at 2 p.m. for John Huston's Asphalt Jungle (1950, 112 min) on the sixth floor of the Mid-Manhattan Library.

Film Noir is part of Mystery Summer and a full schedule is available online at: bit.ly/mysterysummer. All screenings are FREE and seating is first-come, first-served.

"One of the first films to depict crime from the point of view of the deviants rather than the police, this seminal film (arguably Huston's best) had a huge influence on the genre, manifest in the early work of Kubrick—and decades later Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs" —Emanuel Levy, emanuellevy.com
