38. The Treasure of Sierra Madre

What it's about
Some men go looking for gold!

What I thought
Not much here for me to like, but the old man was funny.

What Mum thought
Mum had seen this one before. "Not more Bogart! Luckily, Huston completely steals the spotlight on this one. A wise old toothless codger who just kicks his heels up and has a good time. Apart from Huston and, of course, 'Badges? We ain't got no badges...' it drags."

What Dad thought
First time for Dad. "OMG this was long! While it's a competent film, I don't understand why it's on the AFI list. I found it predictable and whilst there are some snappy exchanges and excellent writing, it couldn't raise it to the level of classic for me."
