Well concluded movie
Dobbs and Curtin are two guys that are desperate from living on streets and after meeting Howard they decide to go on gold searching journey which will bring a lot to table. All three of them went there with hopes to find anything that will give them some kind of life but after realizing how much they could get Dobbs starts to change attitude towards them leaving with quantity of gold they have. Dobbs slowly but surely starts to lose himself in so much gold that starts to eat him and now his mistrust is pointed into everybody. After encountering Cody, there arrives trouble with bandits and now they are face to face and trying to survive. Cody ends up dead and bandits running away from Federals and now three companions decide to leave. One night they come in touch with indios that seek help for their kid and Howard decides to help them and tomorrow they are going away but villagers are determined that Howard stays and enjoys with them leaving Dobbs and Curtin to carry his gold. Dobbs finally lost it and in his madness he shots Curtin taking all gold and hoping to leave with everything. Dobbs soon after gets caught recognized by bandits which led to his death and Curtin was found by indios so now they are leaving to find Dobbs. Their discovery shocked them but it had a great sarcastic ending. It was a great journey and adventure but sometimes movie feels to slow and to long but it had a a great point of view on humans. There were some great and intense moments alongside with a great script by John Huston. All three men Bogart (Dobbs), Holt (Curtin) and Walter Huston were great in the movie giving three different portrayals of men but original. 9.4/10
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.
The Treasure of the Sierra Madre
Humphrey Bogart and John Huston collaborated on five films together, among them, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre. The 1948 film also starring Walter Huston and Tim Holt has remained a classic for both the noted actor and director. This is one of my favorite Bogart-had- to-play-this roles. I'm just not convinced that the film would have translated as well had it not been for Bogart playing the down-on- his-luck, then paranoid, amateur prospector. The story of two impoverished men overcome by greed when they finally have a chance to strike it rich in Mexico was also a perfect tale for Huston to tell and audiences have been gifted with the perfect collaboration since its release nearly 70 years ago.

Fred Dobbs (Humphrey Bogart) is an American desperately searching for work in Mexico. Unable to find a job, hes taken to panhandling until he meets Bob Curtin (Tim Holt), a fellow American also looking for work. The two consider themselves fortunate when asked to do a job that pays $8 a day when the job is finished. Soon after the job's completion, the two are never paid and realize they were scammed out of the money they've earned. They venture into town to find the man who scammed them, after a certain brand of persuasion, they are given their dues. Dobbs and Curtin then meet a gold prospector and decide to pool their financial resources and efforts in searching for gold. What begins as a valiant team effort searching for financial independence, quickly turns to severe paranoia and greed once they realize they may have riches in their midst.

No matter how hard I may try, I can never get through a review of a Humphrey Bogart movie without gushing over the actor. Yes, Bogart has played this type of role (the hardened tough guy) in other films, but the reason he was sought after for the role so many times is because he was fantastic at playing it. Bogart had a way of encapsulating the tormented tough guy and the vulnerable, isolated parts of the same person like no one I have ever seen before. John Huston is truly the master of the adventure film, continuously finding a way to keep audiences engaged. The best thing about Huston's adventure films is that they keep one engaged without constant action. The action scenes are wonderful, no doubt, but Huston was also masterful in establishing tension between characters and illustrating it well enough for the audiences to be enough a part of it that they are on the edge of their seats the whole time. The part of Cody, the intruder who tries to partner up with Dobbs and Curtin, seems tailor-made for Burt Lancaster. Lancaster was quite busy in '48, starring in four films that year, but I just would have loved to see him in that role. Huston told a masterful tale of how money and capital influence everyone, even if you're sure money could never change you. Dobbs and Curtin were so hard up for money, they were sure they would be happy with enough to get by if they were fortunate enough to find any gold at all, until they did.

The Humphrey Bogart Eyes moment in The Treasure of the Sierra Madre came when Bogart's Dobbs first sees the gold he and his team found. After struggling for so long, all Dobbs can think of is that he has asked passersby for money for the last time. Dobbs is sure that he will never have to struggle again, as long as he can get home with his share. Almost simultaneously, Dobbs also becomes incredibly paranoid that his team is going to outwit him and crush the dreams he has for his fortune. The paranoia and euphoria captured on Dobbs' face as the gold is weighed is the perfect Humphrey Bogart Eyes moment of The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, as only Bogie could capture it.
The treasure that this movie is
The Treasure of Sierra Madre is a reflection on some of the most basic human values. Greed for money, trust in friends, courage and loyalty, always helping the needy are some of themes that manifest themselves on the screen during different times. The acting is brilliant in this movie. Humphrey Bogart is spot on with his portrayal of an impecunious bloke, who wants an opportunity to make it big, and his transformation from that to a mistrusting, nefarious lunatic. Tim Holt and Walter Huston complement Bogart wonderfully and act as models of rectitude and self-righteousness. The bandits and the Indians put in captivating performances. The scene at the end ,when Holt and Huston's characters laugh at the game fate put them through just to set them off to the next chapters in their life where they can feel contented, served as a fitting end to an impressive movie by John Huston.
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.
"I know what gold does to men's souls."
The Treasure of Sierra Madre, is not only a stunningly visual treat, but also a story and script of depth and magnitude, set in old time Mexico.

As a Bogart fan, I found it at first, difficult to get past Bogart playing such a ragged and gritty character, once I did I realised him and his co stars - Walter Huston & Tim Holt were such a tenacious force in this 2.5 hour epic.

Sierra Madre feels fresh and could stand up well against anything put out today. I have not seen a film in recent years, with outstanding lines, powerfully delivered by Huston or with the conviction and honesty Holt does..with Bogart, all three characters are very different yet essential.

Do yourself a favor and go buy or rent this. It carries great moral and truth, in a story of rags to almost riches.

A Powerful Statement About The Power Of Greed
With its obvious warning about the consequences of greed, this film is surprisingly relevant today. True, we no longer suffer from the classic problem of "gold fever." Not many people go out free-lance prospecting anymore, but corporate greed is certainly much in the news and the economic collapse of late 2008 had at least partly at its root the problem of greed. This wonderful classic uses a more traditional setting, but manages to portray the same collapse of civilized behaviour and the problems that arise with simply looking out for Number 1. In this movie, that position is clearly held by Humphrey Bogart's Fred Dobbs, an American drifter in Mexico who hooks up with fellow drifter Curtin (Tim Holt) and "old-timer" Howard (Walter Huston). Together they decide to strike out into the mountains in search of gold, in spite of Howard's warnings about what riches can do to people - and gold they find.

The three characters each seem to represent a different aspect of human nature. Howard is past the age of being too concerned with wealth, and seems to treat this more as an adventure, Curtin is the honest one who wants to make sure that everyone gets treated fairly, and Dobbs is the one who catches "gold fever" and becomes increasingly greedy and unbalanced as he contemplates the wealth he can now posses. Bogart's portrayal of the man gradually losing his grip was brilliant, and of the movies I've seen him in I'd rank this near "Casablanca" as his best performance. Director John Huston made excellent use of the setting and developed the story nicely, with Dobbs and Curtin starting the movie as victims of dishonest greed, before having to deal with the temptation themselves. There's also some pretty good actions with local bandits. In the end, Dobbs' decision to give into greed robs them all of the wealth they thought would be theirs, and their reactions to their loss of everything were perfectly in character, Dobbs being murdered by the bandits, Curtin realizing that he really hasn't lost anything, while Howard, thanks to an encounter with some local Indians, discovers more than he could ever have hoped for if he had simply kept his gold.

An altogether wonderful couple of hours. 8/10
Gold Fever-Golden Age Classic
What more can be said about this great classic. Anyone who wants to be known as a classic film buff has to have seen this movie. The movie stars Hollywood legend Humphrey Bogart in one of his most famous roles as Fred C Dobbs a down and out American on the bum in Mexico. Through chance he meets up with two other characters played by Tim Holt and Walter Houston and decide between them to take their chance on prospecting for gold. Walter Houston's character warns the other two of the potential for problems within the trio once gold is found and his warning is right on the mark. They have to overcome not only problems from within but from outsiders too, such as the Mexican bandits who cause havoc where ever they go. It is during an encounter with these bandits that we get one of Hollywood's most famous movie lines. Bogart's character asks a bandit to show him a badge if he is a Federale as the bandit claims. The bandit responds, "Badges? We ain't got no badges. We don't need no badges! I don't have to show you any stinkin' badges!" This is a great movie from Hollywood's Golden Age.
Great psychological exploration, with a brilliant performance from Bogie!
There is a great deal to recommend THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE: the names in the cast, of course (including Humphrey Bogart and Walter Huston); the writer/director (John Huston); the plot (three gold prospectors brave the land, bandits and one another to seek their fortune in the hills of Mexico); or simply word of mouth (it's one of the best-loved films of all time, and for good reason).

These are all wonderful reasons to catch the film. For myself, I find two in particular that stand out, the first of which is the wonderfully observed, carefully executed psychological journey on which the main character Fred Dobbs (Bogart) embarks when he and his buddy Bob Curtin (Tim Holt) decide to join old experienced gold-prospector Howard (Huston) on a new prospecting trip. The changes in his character are gradual but shocking, as he becomes increasingly more paranoid and suspicious of his partners. This is further complicated by the appearance on the scene of James Cody (Bruce Bennett), whose desperation to strike gold becomes clear following his death. But Dobbs becomes horrifyingly cold and unfeeling, even rejoicing when Howard is brought away to a Mexican village and leaves the 'goods' with himself and Curtin. The final denouement is painful to watch but true and not at all pat--in fact, it's a great Huston ending, realistic but also self-conscious, particularly at the end with Howard and Curtin realising that if they've lost anything, it's nothing compared to what Dobbs has lost. A good, simple message.

The other reason to watch this film is most certainly Bogart's lead performance. His lined, extraordinary face conveys emotion like few others can, and simply calls to the camera for attention. Little wonder that Huston loved working with Bogie so much--Bogie's face, creased in non-sinister joy, or twisted with crazed suspicion, is truly one for the camera. His work in this film is exceptional as well: we believe his descent into madness, just as we accept his rough but amiable pleasantness before he gets enticed by the prospect of striking it rich. We can't help being revulsed by the sea-change in the man, but we can't help feeling sorry for this man, so generous and friendly in the beginning, whose corruption through gold is so scary and complete. It's truly a fabulous performance.

So, for these two reasons and a host of others previously mentioned, THE TREASURE OF SIERRA MADRE comes very highly recommended. It's a cracking film, suspenseful and funny with a great score as well. 8/10.
Bogart's best - and that includes 'Casablanca'!
'The Treasure of the Sierra Madre' might be the crown jewel in the filmographies of John Huston, Humphrey Bogart and cinematographer Ted McCord, the latter being responsible for some of the sharpest, most inspired cinematography I've ever seen. (The only film from the era to challenge it, in my opinion, is Powell and Pressburger's 'Black Narcissus'.) What makes this one of my favourite films is its perfect balance of technical excellence and rich storytelling. To say too much would be to spoil the film, but I cannot help but commend the narrative style of this film. Every now and then, I see a title which promises one story and delivers something else: Hitchcock's 'Psycho', Neil Jordan's 'The Crying Game' and Spielberg's 'A.I.' are among the films most famous for narrative curveballs, but I think 'The Treasure of the Sierra Madre' is one of the most effective. A large part of the reason this works so well is because of the man who probably brought the film's attention to you: Humphrey Bogart. Prior to watching this film, I didn't think that the performances of the 'Casablanca' icon differed too greatly; I knew that he was an outstanding actor, but his characters could generally be described as 'romantic' and 'cynical'. My opinion changed as I watched 'The Treasure of the Sierra Madre', as Bogart outstandingly portrays a character gripped by paranoia, greed and desperation, and I would confidently say that it is one of his best performances. However, my review thus far may have created the impression of this film being a one-man show; it isn't, as Walter Huston attests with his Oscar-winning supporting act. When you combine a great cast with one of Hollywood's most acclaimed directors, you probably anticipate an above-average viewing experience; if you haven't yet seen 'The Treasure of the Sierra Madre', you're in for an excellent two hours.
