The Asphalt Jungle

One of director Huston's most memorable efforts, this taut drama is a brilliantly stylized crime story about a group of hoods plotting a major heist. Led by a curious, almost mystical German expatriate, the gang woos the local establishment for backing. With Sterling Hayden, James Whitmore and Marilyn Monroe.
