CULT – 1

 

VERDICT – 4/5

 

 
PROS –
1) Another great story of greed. A paranoid man with disoriented conscience led to the disaster of a perfect gold-rush adventure.
2) John Huston’s tight screenplay and direction. While Bogart is the leading man, the highlight will be Walter Huston natural acting as the wise old man leading the pack.
3) Humphrey Bogart played the central character of an insecure tramp. His character of Fred C. Dobbs is a classic example of an over-suspicious man going nuts in isolation.
4) A somewhat fulfilling climax for Howard & Curtin.

 
CONS –
N/A

 

QUOTE –
Howard: I know what gold does to men’s souls.
