Yesterday I vegetated in front of the TV and watched two of the greatest movies ever made. Both were released in 1948 and would have been considered the big budget blockbusters of their day, each filmed on location and each costing about $3 million - an enormous amount in those days. First up was John Hustons's wonderful 'The Treasure of the Sierra Madre', followed by Howard Hawk's mythic 'Red River' about the first cattle drive over the famous Chisholm trail between Texas and Kansas.
