The Treasure of the Sierra Madre. Not so hot on this one. It seems like too much of a message film. Greed is bad! Money corrupts! I do like seeing Bogart as a bad guy, though. The only other John Huston movies I’ve seen are Key Largo, which is pretty good, and The Maltese Falcon, which is superb. I’d like to see The Misfits at some point.
The Maltese Falcon. This movie is really, really good. Sydney Greenstreet is hilarious. Peter Lorre does the usual vaguely-creepy foreigner bit. Mary Astor is a tricky little devil. Bogart is Bogartian. None of the characters are entirely likeable, or hateable. Thumbs-up.
