First Monday Movies - The Asphalt Jungle

Welcome to the 2011 Season of First Monday Movies at Excelsior Branch. The year's theme is Film Noir Part 2, continuing our most popular theme yet.

The Asphalt Jungle (1950, 112 min.)
Directed by John Huston

Criminal mastermind Doc Erwin Riedenschneider (Sam Jaffe) blows into town with a caper that the local hoods can't resist. He sets up the deal with big-time lawyer Alonzo D. Emmerich (Louis Calhern) and chooses Dix Handley (Sterling Hayden) as the muscle for the job. Unfortunately, Emmerich is hatching a doublecross and plans to take the loot and skip with his mistress Angela Phinlay (Marilyn Monroe). The dark urban world of The Asphalt Jungle is one of the essential destinations in film noir.

Monday, January 3 @ 6:30 p.m.


The Excelsior Branch and all SFPL branches will close at 5:00pm on Friday December 24 and will be closed Saturday, December 25 for Christmas.
