A Job Gone Wrong
Hoods and thieves are good friends until its time to divvy up a million dollars worth of stolen diamonds. Then the backstabbing, double-crossing, and murdering begins. In John Hustons 1950 heist movie, The Asphalt Jungle, a newly released convict named Doc Erwin Riedenschneider (Sam Jaffe) plots his comeback caper, gets financing from a crooked lawyer (Louis Calhern), and recruits a gang of pros, thugs, and hunchbacks to carry it all out. The result is a brutal and bloody 112 minutes: A jewelry store gets jacked, an alarm gets tripped, a weak link turns rat, the money man goes rogue, and bodies start dropping like dead trees. The Asphalt Jungle will be shown this Saturday at 7:30 p.m. as part of the summer screening series at Viceroy Spa at Icon Brickell. Now, a footnote: Watch out for 24-year-old, prestardom Marilyn Monroe as Emmerichs spoiled mistress, Angela Phinlay. Shes beautiful, blonde, and dangerous.
