The Treasure of the Sierra Madre
Directed by John Huston
Netflix says… Wrapped in a classic tale of adventure, this Academy Award winner helmed by John Huston follows a trio of gold prospectors who set out to strike it rich and agree to spit the take until paranoia and greed consumes one of them. Delivering superb performances as the three miners are Humphrey Bogart, Tim Holt and Walter Huston, who copped a Best Supporting Actor Oscar while son John scored statuettes for his direction and screenplay.
This one is a classic that, I’ll be honest, didn’t really do a whole lot for me. I mean, it was decent and all. And I’m glad I finally got to experience the origin of the classic line, “We don’t have to show you not stinking badges!” I guess it’s a good cautionary tale about how three guys in the middle of nowhere looking for gold can go a
little lot crazy.
