See this film: The Treasure of the Sierra Madres at the Brattle

If you're tired of the spiffed-up, romanticized tough guy in Casablanca you might want to balance your image of Humphrey Bogart with his bandy-legged, deluded scalawag in John Huston's The Treasure Of The Sierra Madre (1948), the best Hollywood depiction of greed since, well, Greed (1924).
