520    "Loosely based on the Biblical parable of the thieves and 
       the 'Pardoner's Tale' in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, John 
       Huston's morality tale is one of the great cinematic 
       proofs of the Biblical adage radix malorum est cupitidas, 
       or, the root of evil is the love of money. The film is a 
       clever study of the erosive effect that money can have on 
       flawed men's characters. Shot entirely on location in 
       Mexico, the film's dry and dusty atmosphere is clearly 
       authentic. Humphrey Bogart's maniacal Fred Dobbs is one of
       moviedom's great characterizations, a conglomeration of 
       cunning, greed and paranoia. As his wealth mounts, so does
       his distrust. While external threats abound, the real 
       enemy lies within. The Treasure of the Sierre Madre 
       examines the essential existential hopelessness and 
       loneliness of the avaricious man, drawing an implicit 
       parallel between the prospectors and man's contemporary 
       pursuit of material wealth. A failure with audiences who 
       apparently didn't want to see Bogie playing such a 
       nefarious anti-hero, the movie is now recognized by most 
       critics as an American classic: AFI voted it #30 on the 
       list of 100 all time great American films, while for the 
       first time ever, a father and son -- John (for directing 
       and screenplay) and Walter Huston (for best supporting 
       actor) -- won Oscars for their stellar work." -- Dan
