TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE

1948 / 126min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: JOHN HUSTON

CAST: HUMPHREY BOGART, WALTER HUSTON, TIM HOLT

The purest distillation of Huston’s jaundiced worldview, which might be summed up in the proverb “Man is a wolf to man.” Fortune hunters Humphrey Bogart, Tim Holt, and Walter Huston (a Best Supporting Actor winner for the part) go searching for gold in the mountains of Mexico, but the real troubles begin when they actually find the precious yellow stuff, unleashing an epidemic infection of paranoia and greed.

Treasure of the Sierra Madre is screening as part of Metrograph A to Z, a collection of films we think everybody should see. Click here for more info.
