THE ASPHALT JUNGLE (1950)

11/22 at 10pm     11/23 at 1pm  &  7:30pm   11/24 at 5pm  11/25 at 7pm

It is Noir November at the ESQUIRE THEATRE and we could not let it pass without showing the classic Noir filmed here in Cincinnati, THE ASPHALT JUNGLE.

Directed by one of the all-time greats John Huston and starring Sterling Hayden this film explores the "best of the bad" in Film Noir with crime, treachery and murder at the core. An inspiration for Quentin Tarantino's RESERVOIR DOGS that put him on the radar screen, THE ASPHALT JUNGLE involves a jewelry robbery that "goes south" and includes an early Marilyn Monroe appearance.

Scoring a 97% on Rotten Tomatoes, the Critics Consensus: "The Asphalt Jungle is an expertly told crime story with attention paid to the crime and characters in equal measure."
