TERRY CAESAR Social construction is most evident in...situational definitions of emotionrelevant meanings. --Steven Gordon (qtd. in Gullette, 1997) February 25 Cable Look what's on the AMC cable channel: The Treasure of the Sierra Madre. How many times have I seen this classic during the course of my life? Half a dozen? It proves to be as easy to see yet another time as to digest the rice and soy sausage that I've had for lunch. Of course I could go upstairs and resume writing. Or go out and do a few trivial errands. But what the hell, I say to myself: I'm retired! If you can't just relax and enjoy an afternoon movie when you're retired, when can you? Interestingly, the question comes up at one point, sort of, when the three principals fall to talking about what they'll do once they cash in their gold. Dobbs (Bogart) opts for booze, women, excitement. Curtin (Tim Holt) mentions just buying a ranch somewhere and settling down. Howard (Walter Houston), the old prospector, doesn't have any particular dream, as long as he has "enough to last me out." Of course the overt theme of the movie is, how much money
