The Treasure of the Sierra Madre

Three men go looking for gold in Mexico. Greediness happens. Bad stuff ensues.

I loved watching Humphrey Bogart be so snivelly and pathetic. There were elements of this film that I think Spielberg and Lucas took for Raiders of the Lost Ark which made me dig it even more.

And I had no idea that the "Badges? We don't need no stinkin' badges" line came from this movie. Good stuff.

Directed by John Huston
1948

this is one of my all time favorites. some of the scenes are just terrifying... the reflection in the water as bogart goes down to drink - that moment where the bandits are checking to see how big his shoes were before they killed him. i've seen this one lots. always like it.
