Two Line Reviews - #148

Movie: The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948)

Plot: Two unemployed beggar-like blokes get enthused by an old man's story on the quest for gold & the three of them set themselves on an expedition to mine gold. When they end up getting enough gold greed,doubts,betrayal & fights creep in because of one in the three & this causes trouble.

  • Humphrey Bogart proves his versatility with a role that is as different from his posh image as possible & he excels with his cunning ways when the evil gets into him.
  • The persons who have played Howard & Curtin are brilliant too. Especially, the old man. He shines.
  • The making - Credits for the team for making this big an outdoor film such a long time back; & the sentiments associated with gold are explained through some superb scenes.
My Rating: 9.4/10
