Film Review

I first saw this gem when in high school, with two other buddies. It was showing at a local college for free, so being three geeks with nothing else to do, off we went…what we saw, was a movie riddled with scenes that never ever leave you, ever!! Funny, that one of my buddies last name happened to be Curtin (like the Tim Holt character), so for weeks afterward's, whenever the other amigo and myself would run into him, we would just have to yell.."Couiten!….Couiten!!….COUITEN!!!!!" a la the unforgettable scene where Bogart is in a panic, trying to find the erstwhile Tim Holt.Another favorite scene is when Tim Holt, who turned in a very believable, professional performance, sees the Gila monster go under a rock, which just happens to be the hiding place of Bogarts share of the gold. Holt starts to turn the rock over when Bogart sees him and thinks he is stealing his booty. While holding a gun on Holt, and calling him a liar and a thief, Bogart starts to nervously re…

Based on the novel of the same name by B. Traven. Two penniless men, Dobbs and Curtin(Humphrey Bogart and Tim Holt), meet in a Mexican town and decide to go searching for gold, bringing along Howard (Walter Huston), an old-timer and expert of the field they encounter. They arrive at the Sierra Madre mountains, and find the gold. Paranoia and suspicion soon poison Dobbs' mind for good. 3 Oscars: Director John Huston, his father Walter (Best Supporting Actor), best adapted screenplay. Well structured narrative-wise, as it is expected from Huston, entertaining, and dense with clear themes such as greed, poverty, trust and betrayal, that perfectly fit within the historical context of the setting. Perhaps a bit overrated because of its conventionality and predictable nature, although it is one of the very first films that was for the most part shot outdoors, rather than in the studio.

John Huston's "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre" is regarded as one of the finest adventure films ever to come out of Hollywood. In it, three down on their luck Americans in Tampico, Mexico set out with plans of making their fortune in gold. However, with riches within their grasp greed threatens to undo all of their hard work.Humphrey Bogart is the star of the film and he delivers one of the best performances of his career. Apparently the Academy didn't see things that way, though, since he went unnominated at Oscar time. Walter Huston, on the other hand, won an Oscar for his memorable supporting role. Rounding out the three is Tim Holt, the least interesting of the bunch but not bad, per se. The rest of the cast is acceptable but nothing to write home about.John Huston received Oscars for both his screenplay and his direction. The recognition for directing was certainly warranted but the film is supposedly quite faithful to the novel, so perhaps B. Traven deserve…
