“I think I’ll go to sleep and dream about piles of gold getting bigger and bigger and bigger.”

There are few pleasures greater for a movie fan than seeing classic movies in a theater and on the big screen, where they belong — and in 2018, Fathom Events and Turner Classic Movies are presenting 13 cinematic greats in theaters nationwide in the 2018 TCM Big Screen Classics Series.

The corrosive power of greed mixes with high adventure in the explosive movie classic The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, which will thrill movie lovers when it kicks off the 2018 TCM Big Screen Classics series on Sunday, January 14, and Tuesday, January 16.

From Fathom Events and Turner Classic Movies, the series presents 13 extraordinary cinema milestones throughout 2018, each playing in hundreds of theaters across the country. The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, celebrating its 70th anniversary, launches the series. Director John Huston’s unforgettable drama follows desperate prospectors (Humphrey BogartTim Holt and Walter Huston), who set off to find gold in the rugged Mexican wilderness. Instead, they find trouble – not the least of which is the temptation of greed. This presentation of The Treasure of the Sierra Madre will also include specially-produced commentary before and after the feature by TCM Primetime Host Ben Mankiewicz.

While countless films deal with the subject of money and greed, and the deadly combination the two can create, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre stands out for its artistry, including John Huston’s direction, the performances of Bogart and Walter Huston (John’s father), and the stellar camera work of Ted McCord. It’s an uncompromising look at the dark side of human nature.
