The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948) (Two-Disc Special Edition)
Dobbs and Curtin meet up in Mexico, and go to work for a contractor, Pat McCormick, who takes them away to remote site and tells them they will be paid when the job is finished. When they are finished, they return to town to find McCormick to get their wages. McCormick gives them a few dollars, and says he'll just go to the bank and pick up the payroll for them. Dobbs and Curtin then meet up with an old prospector, who claims the hills are still full of gold, and if they can get the cash, he'll go with them. They eventually get the cash from McCormick after a little "persuasion", and all three set off for the hills as good friends, but will they return that way ? It stars Humphrey Bogart as Fred C. Dobbs, Walter Huston as Howard and Tim Holt as Bob Curtin. This is the most powerful movie ever made on the destructive power of greed. This movie is rightfully considered one of the greatest American films, and is also yet another in a string of first-rate collaborations between John Huston and Humphrey Bogart. A must-see!
