Lust for Gold

LUST FOR GOLD is a 1949 western starring Glenn Ford, Ida Lupino, Gig Young, William Prince, Will Geer and Paul Ford.

Most of the film is told in flashback about the exploits of Jacob Walz (Glenn Ford), a greedy, homicidal owner of the legendary Lost Dutchman Mine. After conniving and killing his way to success, Walz is destroyed when he falls in love with equally mercenary Julia Thomas (Ida Lupino at her nasty best). The film returns to the Present, as a descendant of Walz tries to locate the mine—and endangers his own life as he's not the only one interested in it.

It's an entertaining film which is better than most in the sub-genre (I'm making this up) "hunting for gold westerns", but it's no Treasure of the Sierra Madre either.

Recommended, especially if you like Westerns.
