This movie immediately reminded me of 'There Will be Blood'. Very much about greed and what fortune does to a man's soul.
It was gripping from the very begining. A very easy movie to understand and get involved in.
It's cool to see Humphry Bogart play a rotten guy. Not charming rotten, just bad. Walter seemd to set the table for the 'old prospector' character, but was really charming and trustworthy.
Definetly a good one for the AFI list. I'm getting close to knocking that one out.
