Three prospectors in search of gold in Mexico find suspicion, treachery and greed. Bogart is superbly believable as the paranoid, and ultimately homicidal, Fred C. Dobbs. Huston directed his father and wrote the screenplay, based on a B. Traven story.

I feel this is one of bogarts finest performances. He plays a demented and evil character but he plays it in a very natural way and doesn't overdo it. The movie also has walter huston also playing a great part of a prospector which he won an oscar and deservedly so.. If you love bogart you will love this movie it is great!
