“Badges? We ain’t got no badges. We don’t need no badges! I don’t have to show you any stinkin’ badges!”
Set in post revolution 1920’s Mexico, where bandits and the ruthless Federal Police still clashed, THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE is a classic story of which is more dangerous: nature or human nature. The film follows two down-on-their-luck men (Humphrey Bogart and Tim Holt) who join up with an old timey prospector (played by the director’s father) to chase the dream of gold. Along the way, as is to be expected, the trio deals with a mysterious stranger, banditos, flimsy structural support, and the insanity brought about by greed.
Included in the National Film Registry for being “culturally, historically or esthetically significant,” THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE is perhaps the best Humphrey Bogart performance and most definitely a resounding win for director John Huston. See this piece of film history tonight!
