Editorial Reviews

Additional Features

For those who crave DVD extras, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre will surely satisfy. First and foremost, this remastered DVD, presented in its original full-screen format and mono audio, looks and sounds fantastic. The commentary, by Bogart biographer Eric Lax, is very informative. This is a commentator who really knows a lot about Bogart and it comes across in this track. Extra nuggets to be found in this set include two detailed documentaries: Discovering Treasure, a new Warner Brothers documentary on the film, and John Huston: The Man, the Movies, the Maverick (1989), a wonderfully exhaustive documentary of the Hollywood legend. Two other nice additions are the Lux Theatre radio broadcast of "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre" and the Looney Tunes' "8 Ball Bunny" costarring Bugs and Bogart. All in all, a great package for a golden classic. --Rob Bracco

I would like to thank everyone for the wonderful reviews. Tim Holt was my father and "Treasure" was always my favorite movie. It's nice to know that his work is still being appreciated. By the way, the man in the "flop house" scene who is talking with Walter Huston is my grandfather, Jack Holt. He just happened to be visiting the set that day and John Huston thought it would be fun to include him in the film!

"The Treasure of the Sierra Madre" won Oscars for best director (John Huston), best supporting actor (Walter Huston) and best screenplay (John Huston). The film was also nominated for best picture but unfortunately lost out to Laurence Olivier's "Hamlet". This was yet another marvellous performance by Humphrey Bogart in a difficult role and proves once again what an outstanding actor he can be when given the right material.

Fred C. Dobbs (Humphrey Bogart) and Bob Curtin (Tim Holt) are two Americans down on their luck in Tampico, Mexico, who manage to acquire a temporary job working for Pat McCormick (Barton MacLaine) but don't get paid for their efforts as McCormick does a disappearing act with the money. Dobbs and Curtin catch up with him later in a bar and after coming to blows manage to get the money that was owed to them. A young Mexican boy (Robert Blake) approaches Dobbs who reluctantly buys a lottery ticket from him. Dobbs and Curtin spend the night in a flop house where they meet Howard (Walter Huston), a grizzled old timer who tells them stories of the times he went prospecting for gold in the mountains. They are both fascinated by Howard's stories but don't have the necessary funds to purchase the equipment they would need to look for gold. Next day the young Mexican boy comes to find Dobbs to tell him that his ticket has won some money in the lottery. It is not a fortune but enough to invest in some tools and equipment so that Curtin and Dobbs can team up with Howard to search for gold in the Sierra Madre mountains. Greed and distrust inevitably take hold of Dobbs and he gets increasingly suspicious of his two companions and becomes more and more paranoid as the days go by. He is sure that they want to steal his share of the gold which is just not so.

"The Treasure of the Sierra Madre", is now always placed in that sacred pantheon of Bogie classics along with "Casablanca", "The Maltese Falcon, and "The African Queen", when his work is discussed, however that was not the case upon the film's release in 1948 when it was a commercial failure and was not well liked at all by Humphrey Bogart's legion of fans. Rejected because of the largely unsympathetic character he portrays, happily with time that situation has been rectified and it is now considered one of his greatest performances worthy of classic status.
"The Treasure of the Sierra Madre", tells the uncompromising, warts and all story of three men thrown into a situation where their basic characters and instincts are put to the supreme test. The story in actual fact is a seering study of greed and opportunity and what it does, or can do to essentially ordinary decent individuals. The film has aged very well because its commentary could be very easily transferred to any setting in todays world where temptation and greed can distort lives. Based on a novel by B. Traven and adapted for the screen by multi talented John Huston who also directed, "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre", gave both Humphrey Bogart and Walter Huston (John's father) some of the best roles they ever had. Bogart plays Fred Dobbs who we first see in Mexico living from hand to mouth and literally down to his last dollar when fate intervens and he finds himself teaming up with fellow bad lucker Bob Curtin (Tim Holt in another powerful performance) and old timer Gold Prospector Howard (Walter Huston in his Oscar winning role). The reason for the collaboration is the lure of Gold desposits in the Sierra Mountains which seem to be ripe for the pickings if only one can get to them.

Format: DVD
I have been lucky enough to have had the opportunity to watch this DVD and all I can say is, don't hesitate! Order it immediately!
The transfer is beautiful and is almost completely free from film damage or other blemishes. The blacks are deep and consistent throughout the picture. A beautiful DVD transfer.
Sound is presented in the film's original monaural track which has been cleaned up due to its age. There is no hiss or background screech or other noise to detract from your viewing of the movie.
As for extras, Warner's presents the movie in its "Night at the Movies" format which simulates the experience of watching the film circa 1947 theatre style. That means you get to enjoy period newsreels, comedy shorts, cartoons, etc. before you watch the feature. Very enjoyable!
Disc 2 of this set features a 2 hour documentary on director John Huston's career, hosted by Robert Mitchum. The doc features interviews, photos, private film footage and more and is a great tribute to this talented director. Excellent!
Next is a 50 minute documentary on the making of the film. There are interviews with the cast and crew as well as film historians that make a great supplement to the film itself. Great!
There is also a classic Bugs Bunny cartoon, a "Treasure Trove" (tons of production photos, storyboards, publicity materials, etc.), and finally, a 1949 radio version of Treasure of the Sierra Madre performed by Bogart & Walter Huston.
Warner again presents a truly great special edition of one of their classic library films. Don't be without it!

The DVD is NOT in widescreen. However, since the movie was not shot in widescreen - the DVD offers the movie in the correct aspect ratio.
