The Treasure of the Sierra Madre ★★★★★

A remodelled parable about humankind's selfishness and desperation set alongside an ominous musical score by Max Steiner, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre discerns Humphrey Bogart delivering an outstanding performance as the wayfaring Fred C. Dobbs. It asserted itself to be a triumphant achievement for its writer and director John Huston, who adapted it from the nineteen twenty-seven novel by B. Travel, and it's particularly distinguished for its fabulous beginning and memorable conclusion.
