Noir City Detroit Double Feature 3: The Asphalt Jungle (1950) and Cry Danger (1951) hosted by Eddie Muller
Big stars, great films! Marilyn Monroe had her first important role as a gangster's girlfriend in this elegant thriller about a doomed jewelry heist from John Huston, also starring noir stalwart Sterling Hayden.
Cry Danger features Dick Powell as an ex con framed from a murder he didn’t commit, enlisting the help of ex-girlfriend Rhonda Fleming, now living in a trailer park. Another noir gem restored by the Film Noir Foundation.
