Huston salute leads to 'Jungle'

The American Cinematheque's John Huston retrospective continues with his excellent 1950 heist film, "The Asphalt Jungle," based on W.R. Burnett's novel. The fine cast of assorted cons and hangers-on includes Sterling Hayden, Louis Calhern, Jean Hagen, James Whitmore, Sam Jaffe and, of all people, Marilyn Monroe.
