7PM: The FilmTreasure of the Sierra Madre, selected by Bill Ramsey.

“This is a 4-star classic, and you don’t need no stinking badges to attend. The Treasure of the Sierra Madre is a 1948 American Western film written and directed by John Huston. It is an adaptation of B. Traven‘s 1927 novel of the same name, set in 1925, and follows two downtrodden men (played by Humphrey Bogart and Tim Holt) who join forces with a grizzled old prospector (Walter Huston, the director’s father), in searching for gold in Mexico.

The Treasure of the Sierra Madre was one of the early Hollywood productions to be shot on location outside the United States (in the state of Durango with street scenes in Tampico, Mexico), but many scenes were filmed back in the studio and elsewhere in the U.S. In 1990, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.”

    Please join us at 6:30ish for light refreshments before this film. I will bring popcorn and wine. A delightful, intellectual romantic comedy released in 2014. Starring Juliette Binoche and Clive Owen. Rated PG for some nude sketches and some mature language.
