Radio review - Lux - "Treasure of the Sierra Madre" (1949) ***1/2
Bogie reprises his legendary film role in this enjoyable adventure tale. I'll put my hand up and admit I don't find this as sensational as some (apparently it was one of Kubrick's favourite movies) - something about it doesn't quite work... it feels a bit predictable, maybe? I can't quite put my finger on it. I like it, mind you, I just don't feel it's awesome. Bogart is very good, as is Walter Huston.
