A classic tale of greed and gold, John Huston proves to be at the top of his form with 'Treasure of the Sierra Madre'. Thanks largely to the great performances of its three leads and a brilliant script, the film easily stands the test of time and proves to be potent and relevant,...

Watch John Huston's masterpiece "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre" and recognize so many areas of brilliance that later inspired a multitude of films thereafter. One of the best films depicting greed and paranoia ever, "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre" is a must watch for any m...

Having had his day as an idolized star and romantic leading man, Humphrey Bogart came to a crossroads in his career and decided to get down to the serious business of acting. For eighteen years it had usually been Bogart playing Bogart in various shadings, but once "Bogey" was go...

Seeing this movie in 2012 makes me, perhaps, a little more critical than I would have been 60 years ago or whenever it was made. And maybe it was a pioneering piece in terms of what we know about human nature, but in 2012 we know that greed is a huge motivator, that greed begets...

A really exciting, dramatic, and well made movie. The story is suspenseful and the cast is great. I highly recommend this movie.

I was into this movie at the beginning, but I really didn't know where it was going to turn throughout the middle. I could not believe that the main character was Humphrey Bogart. He is stereotyped into a lot of roles, but he really stretched and played an entirely different ch...
