“Batches? We don’t need no steenkin’ batches!” If you dig old movies, you’ve probably already seen this. Bogey is great here as a bad guy — basically a bum who goes into the mountains with two other prospectors to search for gold. Remember that episode of Gilligan’s Island where everyone gets “gold fever” except for Gilligan? This is the movie version of that, sorta.

The acting is SOLID here. I hadn’t seen this since the first time, in the summer of 1984, and couldn’t believe how much of it I’d forgotten. Definitely worth seeing again many years later.

8/10
