Poll: Favorite "There Is Gold In Them Thar Hills" Movies?

Even though this poll mainly includes westerns, what is your favorite movie about prospecting or mining? For this poll, oil drilling will be considered as prospecting. After voting, you can talk about staking your claim here.

I would like to give a shout out to Hoekkie for inspiring this poll with his The Seven Western Stories (now A live poll, click here ) and to Dan Dassow for mentioning two of the films on this list on Hoekkie's discussion page.
