The Treasure of the Sierra Madre 2.0 stars

Treasure of the Sierra Madre movie poster

The actors adopt exaggerated masks — Bogart with shifty eyes and unshaven stubble, Walter Huston with a penetrating squint and Old Codger whiskers, Tim Holt with a babyfaced pout, and a Mexican bandido with roughly sixty-four teeth — which plainly declare their positions in this primer on Human Greed. They are so adamant about pushing the thesis, their behavior seems barely plausible. From a B. Traven novel; directed by John Huston. 1948.
