A Classic Movie About Greed
The Treasure of the Sierra Madre is a film written and directed by John Huston, a feature film adaptation of B. Traven's 1927 novel of the same name, in which two impecunious Americans Fred C. Dobbs (Humphrey Bogart) and Bob Curtin (Tim Holt) during the 1920s in Mexico join with an old- timer, Howard (Walter Huston, the director's father), to prospect for gold. The old-timer accurately predicts trouble, but is willing to go anyway.

John Huston's 1948 treasure-hunt classic begins as drifter Fred C. Dobbs ,down and out in Tampico, Mexico, impulsively spends his last bit of dough on a lottery ticket. Later on, Dobbs and fellow indigent Curtin seek shelter in a cheap flophouse and meet Howard, a toothless, garrulous old coot who regales them with stories about prospecting for gold. Forcibly collecting their pay from their shifty boss, Dobbs and Curtin combine this money with Dobbs's unexpected windfall from a lottery ticket and, together with Howard, buy the tools for a prospecting expedition. Dobbs has pledged that anything they dig up will be split three ways, but Howard, who's heard that song before, doesn't quite swallow this. As the gold is mined and measured, Dobbs grows increasingly paranoid and distrustful, and the men gradually turn against each other on the way toward a bitterly ironic conclusion.

The Treasure of the Sierra Madre is a superior morality play and one of the best movie treatments of the corrosiveness of greed and this darkly humorous morality tale represents John Huston at his finest.Greed, a despicable passion out of which other base ferments may spawn, is seldom treated in the movies with the frank and ironic contempt that is vividly manifested toward the movie.But nevertheless,it has never really been about gold but about character, and Bogart fearlessly makes Fred C. Dobbs into a pathetic, frightened, selfish man -- so sick we would be tempted to pity him, if he were not so undeserving of pity.

A timeless adventure classic
Despite being almost 70 years old, the influence and lasting legacy of legendary director John Huston's The Treasure of the Sierra Madre can't be underestimated.

A driving force behind Paul Thomas Anderson's oil opus There Will Be Blood, a winner of 3 Oscars at the 1949 Academy Awards and perhaps most telling of all, a ranking in the top 120 best films of all time on the constantly fluctuating IMDb Top 250, Huston's gold hunting adventure film that also marks itself with some truly memorable dark comedic moments, may've aged in areas over the years but there's little denying the power at the heart of this cautionary tale.

Following the exploits of a trio of desperate yet determined Americans, we are joined together with Humphrey Bogart's cold hearted Dobbs, Tim Holt's good natured Curtain and Walter (John's father) Huston's experienced gold prospector Howard (a turn that garnered the legendary actor a Best Supporting Actor Oscar) as the men work together and work out each other for fear of betrayal as they prospect deep in the barren landscape of the Mexican countryside, with nothing more than the potential of great gains driving them forward on their quest.

Huston and his team of fine performers perfectly capture the uneasy friendship of such a fools dream as the group delve further and further into their venture, fighting off bandits, the elements and most tellingly, their internal demons that could potentially drive them over the edge at any given moment.

It's not hard to see where a filmmaker such as Paul Thomas Anderson would've got his inspiration for There Will Be Blood from.

Day Lewis's legendary turn as oil baron Daniel Plainview is clearly cut from the same cloth as Bogart's Dobbs, the two sharing an uneasy nature, an ambition to strike it rich no matter the personal or external cost and watching Bogart quietly work his performance from beginning to memorable end is quite the treat, as one of Hollywood's greats delivers one of his most fully formed acting turns.

The performances are one of the ageless joys of Huston's film and while not everything in the film stands the test of time, such as some questionable dialogue and character choices, Sierra Madre is one of those rare films of an early Hollywood vintage that could doubtfully be done better be it made today.

This fact can only but be seen as further proof of the longstanding notion that John Huston is and will always be one of cinema's finest ever directors.

Final Say –

Filmed on some stunning sets and captured with wonderfully attuned black and white cinematography, John Huston's quintessential treasure hunting adventure, that portrays a relevant story of greed and the ever present madness of it is a must watch golden era classic that overcomes its slight age flaws to still be a film worthy of it's standing as one of cinema's all-time great events.

Music score
Max Steiner score is excellent, particularly the guitars on the San Joaquin Valley bit as Tim Holt recalls his youth, and later when Walter Huston suggests that Tim go and visit Cody's widow.

But I really liked the Mexican music, mariachi and folk, in the beginning of the film.

I've tried for years to find/track down the mariachi music used in the background when Bogart gets out of the barber chair. Anyone have a clue to the name of this tune?

And the song that is played as Holt and Bogart enter the Oso Negro, the flop-house where they meet Walter Huston.

They didn't find gold, they found themselves.
I had the great pleasure of being shown this film in my Screen writing course at my University and from the moment it ended, it has stayed with me. The Treasure of the Sierra Madre is a very hard film for me to categorize. It is a film that exists outside of the boundaries and genres; thus creating it's own style in the process. It appears that many films since have borrowed several elements from the story (Raiders of the Lost Ark, There Will Be Blood, etc.) but I can think of none that are exactly like it.

The story is kept neat and simple; three men head off on a journey into the Mexican mountains to find gold. Yes, gold is what they came for but what they found was much more complex. Each character in the film discovers something about themselves as the film progresses. It's more than just a simple screen story; it's an amazing study of character and drama.

Now, for all of my praise the film does suffer from a few inadequacies. I did not particularly care for the second act nor did I find the antagonists very threatening. They played more for comic relief than anything else. However, these are very trivial errors when you compare them to the film's more amazing qualities.

Humphrey Bogart gives a very menacing and powerful performance in this film, though he is not initially frightening. The audience is instead forced to sit and watch as his character slowly descends into madness and is completely corrupted by greed. The role appeals to our morbidly curious side; we crave to look away from the destruction that unfolds from within his character's psyche and yet we cannot pull our gaze away from it. It is Bogart's best acting. Yes even better than Rick from Casablanca and I do not feel bold in the slightest for saying so.

The lead star is only matched by his supporting cast. Walter Huston, speaking about one hundred words a minute in his incredibly endearing, academy award winning role. Tim Holt is also highly capable as the young, impressionable sidekick to Bogart. He stays morally and ethically sound; remaining firmly on the side of goodness and integrity. You can well imagine what kind of brutal conflict this creates between him and Bogart; some of their shared scenes are among my favourites in the film.

This review would be a failure if I never mentioned Max Steiner's amazing score. Sierra Madre contains some of the best accompanying music I've ever heard from a film of it's age. The main theme in particular is exhilarating, powerful and adventurous. I do have the very distinct feeling that John Williams was influenced by this score.

I could probably sit here and write page after page of why this film is so significant, but the best way to know why is to just experience it for yourself. Once again, this film is more than just a simple story. One by one, it progressively peals back layers of itself to reveal the true story underneath. The human psyche, moral codes and relational conflict are all explored to a great extreme and I enjoyed every moment of it. The third act in particular is absolutely exceptional. This film is a mirror to humanity; displaying all of it's worst and all of it's best. Watch The Treasure of the Sierra Madre and you will know yourself better than you ever thought you did.

Greed has its price
Bogey should have won an academy award as Fred C Dobbs, a down-n-outer in Tampico Mexico who constantly bums money off gringos he runs into on the streets. There he meets Curtin, who together with Walter Huston, ex- prospector, decide to have a go for the gold in the Sierra Madre mountains.

This movie grabs you with it's gritty reality of life for the working man who grinds out a living from the dirt of the earth. That work takes a toll on your body, and the thoughts of money start to take a toll on your mind.

Terrific screenplay, terrific acting, terrific cinematography, this movie has it all. And of course, the famous - Badges - we ain't got no badges, we don't need no stinkin badges - line, will make you cheer and laugh and cry with the resolution of reality.

In the end, we leave the world with what we came into it, and everything else blows away in the end.

This is a must-see gem, with an outstanding Bogey performance. Enjoy.

A great tale about the darker side of human nature...
There are already a lot of reviews for this film and it's in the Top 250 list on IMDb, so I don't feel quite as much need to talk about his film in great depth--after all, it's all been pretty much said. This is an exceptional film for many reasons--most notably because it looks into the darker side of human nature--something you don't often see in films during this era.

The film begins in Mexico. Two Americans (Time Holt and Humphrey Bogart) are stranded there and haven't a peso between them. Their needs are few--they just want to get enough to buy a meal and find a place to flop. Through this first portion of the film, both men seem like decent enough sorts and the audience tends to empathize with them--even when they are involved in a vicious brawl with Barton MacLane--you feel the guy has it coming when the two give him a beating.

Later, however, their prospects change when they hit on the idea of hooking up with an old coot (Walter Huston) who seems to know a lot about gold mining. The three take off for the Mexican wilderness--and much like the story "Heart of Darkness", the good and bad within them is slowly revealed--all brought about by greed.

What I particularly liked about this film is what a great professional Humphrey Bogart was. His character was extremely flawed and later in the film he was very easy to hate. Many stars of the day probably wouldn't have accepted this less role of a less than honorable man. Nor, I think, they would have been so willing to play a guy who wasn't all that macho.

Apart from Bogart, the acting all around was very good, the script exciting and insightful and the direction just dandy. One of the best films of the era.

A compelling adventure
We are slowly drawn into the lives of three men who go off into the mountains in search of gold. The story seduces the viewer with its seeming simplicity. We come to know these three men as real people and become involved with what they are doing and what happens to them.

The theme is simple: there is something more valuable than gold. But the way the theme is presented to us is the real art. Consider the scene around the campfire which is followed by the scene in the Indian village. These two simple settings present the theme without turning it into a sermon.

The plot is probably ancient. Chaucer used it in one of the CANTERBURY TALES. But the plot endures because it makes us look at why we are alive.

It's The All-Time Number One
There are many reasons why this masterwork of art is the greatest film ever made but there are two major ones. First, it is the best combination of creative expression and realism ever put on film. Second it touches on more genres (adventure, character study, drama, murder, psychology, cultures and social values) than any other film. All these genres are wrapped around the central theme of GREED. The other reasons are, of course, named Huston, Bogart, Huston and Traven. The great John Huston outdid himself with both his screenplay and direction in this film which he took many years to undertake and finish. His incomparable scene making is displayed in monumental glory here. Huston insisted on much of the film being made on location in Mexico (extremely rare in Hollywood at the time) and WB was in the end despite the cost, thrilled when they saw the outcome. Huston's dad, Walter was nothing short of sensational in this, his career performance. Bogart's Fred C. Dobbs was perhaps only topped by Capt. Queeg among his many singularly memorable fictional film characters. Huston as the supreme screen writer he was, worked with the book's mysterious author B. Traven and stayed close to the book's story. This film was nothing like Hollywood had ever produced up to that time and was more like an "arty-Euro" film. There were two injustices inflicted on the appreciation side of this amazing film experience. Neither Bogart or Bedoya were even nominated by the academy for their riveting and unique performances. Needless to say, this is the number one "must see" in American film.

This movie is perfection :D
I'm left speechless. This movie is perfect. John Huston did awesome job researching background for this movie, writing screenplay and directing one of the best movies of all time. He won two Oscars for same movie and his father got third one. Walter Huston is one of the best actors of his time and, though he had supporting role, he stole the movie from much more famous Bogart. To be honest, Bogart deserves Oscar for this movie too and Holt is not far behind either. I can not recall last time I saw movie whom I can not find any faults. Although story has very complex and deep characterization, all roles are perfectly played and overall atmosphere of the movie is simply magical. It sucked me in completely and two hours just flew in a blink of an eye. Ending is karmically perfect. It gives us innuendo of how stories of our heroes end and more than anything I wished to see those endings, but instead I got only ending credits. Happy endings are left to our imaginations.

One of the very best movies I ever saw. Pure 10/10.

"It's a great joke played on us by the lord, fate, nature or whatever"
Film noir takes a Mexican holiday in this gritty adventure from John Huston. Pessimistic and full of irony, yet with a sense of adventure and a moralist edge to it, this is typical Huston material.

Huston insisted on shooting on location in Mexico, which riled up studio executives no end, but it paid off in the quality of the picture. Treasure of the Sierra Madre would have really suffered in the canned air of a studio. By using the real thing, he perfectly achieves the stark and dusty atmosphere of the poverty riddled Mexican city in the earliest scenes. The sense of scale and grandeur of the mountains in the main part of the film is also very important in achieving the right effect.

Huston's background was in fine art, and it's at this point in his career as a director that it really starts to show. The use of lighting is painterly in a way that is almost impossible to achieve in black and white – particularly in the scene in the peasant village which looks almost biblical. Huston also has this unique style of framing, whereby he uses figures in the foreground and background to give the effect of a close-up and a mid-shot simultaneously. It's a look that is totally at odds with anything else produced in Hollywood at that time.

Actor wise, Treasure of the Sierra Madre turns the clock back to the 1930s, putting the director's father Walter Huston in a starring role, and casting Humphrey Bogart as a seedy villain. The cast is rounded off by the too-little-seen Tim Holt. All three of them are spot on. The spry old prospector is a role Huston senior seems to have been waiting to play all his life. Bogart is also great playing the sort of character he made his name with a decade earlier. Also worth a mention is Mexican actor Alfonso Bedoya who gives what is for this era an incredibly naturalistic performance as the bandit leader.

Huston's forte was in his cinematography, his shot composition and the rhythm of his films, not so much in his handling of action or actors, which is why his pictures tend to be a bit hit and miss. This one is a hit though, thanks to the strength of its story and the quality of the cast, not to mention Huston's persistence for authenticity. Not my absolute favourite of his work, but certainly one of the best.
