The first film ever shown at the Plaza Classic Film Festival (in a private setting) makes its triumphant return for our 10th anniversary. Humphrey Bogart gives one of his greatest performances as Dobbs, a blindingly greedy man who sets out with a fellow worker (Tim Holt) to find gold in Mexico in the 1920s. Legendary writer-director John Huston cast his own father, Walter Huston, to play the role of Howard, the aging prospector who leads Dobbs and Curtin up the hills of the Mexican desert (one of the first Hollywood films to be shot on location in Mexico). Both Hustons received Academy Awards for their work, a first for a father and son.
