" I've seen a ton of Marilyn Monroe pictures. I think this is the best movie she's done. Too bad she's hardly in it. Her role is the very definition of comic relief. She gets two scenes (one uneventful, the second unforgettable) in a very intense heist movie of angst, loneliness, and indignation. Cops and criminals fight against each other and between themselves. The movie would be a superior crime drama with or without Marilyn, but her hysterically funny second scene is the proverbial cherry on "

New-to-Me Films of 2013 (520 movies items)

"With his filmic adaption of The Maltese Falcon, John Huston proved that he can do film-noir and do it well. Though not quite as sharp as this early film, The Asphalt Jungle continues to prove his talent with directing these sleek crime dramas, especially in the height of Hollywood's Golden Age. For a film like this, the cast is absolutely perfect. I think Sterling Hayden is such an underrated actor, and his performance as the slick, yet troubled Dix Handley is tops. Louis Calhern as the corrupt"
