John Huston?s direction of this corrosive tale of gold lust in the Mexican mountains won an Oscar. Ditto his screenplay. Yet another award went to the director?s father, Walter, for his performance as a crusty old prospector. Humphrey Bogart is a fellow treasure hunter. The drama achieves Shakespearean dimension in conveying the tragic effect of greed on ordinary mortals. (1948 - Warner Bros.) 124 Min.
