Movie Matinee - The Asphalt Jungle (1950)
Join us for a classic movie every Wednesday morning.
This week's movie is: The Asphalt Jungle (1950). Tension builds as a couple of small-time losers plan a jewel heist. The plot of this classic film has been borrowed many times, but John Huston's tight direction gave the film a powerful urgency that has yet to be rivaled. Sterling Hayden is perfect as the thieves’ leader.
Starring Sterling Hayden and Jean Hagen. Turner/MGM Black and White. Not rated. 112 minutes.
