The asphalt jungle by John Huston( Visual )

14 editions published between 1950 and 2008 in English and Italian and held by 1,115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A criminal gang plans an elaborate jewel robbery. What is distinctive in the telling is the straightforward way Huston humanises the criminals while showing their professional approach to crime as 'a left-handed form of human endeavour'. In place of psychosis are all-to-human weaknesses so that the failure of endeavour is not so much fated as fortuitous. The sense of irony and alienation - the police are portrayed as the agents of a hostile world - is, however, wholly noir
