Ah truer words have never been spoken. Here’s tonight’s offering with a host of characters, The Asphalt Jungle.
Recently released from prison, Dix Handley (Sterling Hayden) concocts a plan to steal $1 million in jewels. Dix gathers a team of small-time crooks, including a safecracker (Anthony Caruso) and a lawyer (Louis Calhern), and the heist is a success until a stray bullet kills one of the men. As they scramble to pick up the pieces after the theft, the men let their greed get the best of them while entangling themselves in webs of deceit, treachery, and murder. Check it out tonight@ 11PM CST on TCM, or Sunday morning @ 9AM CST and watch the trailer below.
