Event

NOIR CITY 15: CRISS CROSS / THE ASPHALT JUNGLE
Friday, January 20

The price of admission gets you into the double bill.

7:15
CRISS CROSS

(USA, 1949. Universal-International. 88 min.)

Screenplay by Daniel Fuchs, Bill Bowers (uncredited), from the novel by Don Tracy
Produced by Michel Kraike. Directed by Robert Siodmak

How bad does Steve Thompson (Burt Lancaster) have it for his old flame Anna (Yvonne De Carlo)? Bad enough to concoct an armored car robbery as an excuse to keep seeing her. Bad enough to cut a deal with her gangster husband, the always slippery Dan Duryea. Bad enough to see his scheme through to the bitter, bitter end. Siodmak, pound for pound the greatest director of film noir, delivers the pure, uncut stuff here, infusing this classic crime caper with an intoxicating aura of doomed romanticism. Film noir's ultimate expression of amour fou. Presented in 35mm


9:10
THE ASPHALT JUNGLE

(USA, 1950. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (Warner Bros.). 112 min.)

Screenplay by Ben Maddow and John Huston, from the novel by W. R. Burnett
Produced by Arthur Hornblow, Jr. Directed by John Huston

What better way to kick off NOIR CITY's salute to heist films than with the gold standard of the genre? Wily Doc Riedenschneider (Sam Jaffe) gets sprung from the joint and immediately plans a jewelry store job with a can't-miss crew of professionals. There's no perfect crime -- and no perfect criminals -- because each man carries the seeds of his own destruction. Boasting perhaps the greatest ensemble cast ever -- Sterling Hayden, Jean Hagen, Louis Calhern, Anthony Caruso, Brad Dexter, Marc Lawrence -- and a tempestuous turn that put Marilyn Monroe on the map. Presented in 35mm
