A totally brilliant film. This is the one that Bogart SHOULD have won an oscar for, as his performance is wonderful. Having said that, the whole movie is stolen by the incredible performance of Walter Huston as the "old" prospector....and what a performance!! Truly deserved the oscar he won for it. In short, a "tour de force" by all the actors, not least the wonderful "gold hat"....Alfonso Bedoya.One of the classic all time movies, Hollywood at it's best and, for me, impossible to fault. A truly GREAT movie. I just wonder how Bogart didn't get that oscar! His best performance by far, although the oscar he DID win in "The African Queen" was fabulous too.
