Product Description

Treasure of the Sierra Madre, The: Special Edition (Dbl DVD)

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

Customer Reviews

Some movies just feel like movies you really need to see.
Andrew Ellington
Both earned an Oscar, and this is also one of the best films ever made in my opinion.
Neil Merrick
Humphrey Bogart's performance is tremendous, as is Walter Huston's.

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!

Format: VHS Tape Verified Purchase
"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.

85 of 95 people found the following review helpful By Robert Moore HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on January 31, 2004
Format: DVD
Along with the great Erich von Stroheim classic GREED (which tragically exists only in a greatly abridged version, and which was based on the haunting Frank Norris novel MCTEAGUE), this is the most powerful movie ever made on the destructive power of greed.
THE TREASURE OF SIERRA MADRE is rightfully considered one of the greatest American films, and is also yet another in a string of first-rate collaborations between John Huston and Humphrey Bogart. Although Bogart made many superb films in the forties and fifties, a disproportionate number were with Huston, including the film that made him a star, THE MALTESE FALCON, and the film that garnered Bogie his only Oscar, THE AFRICAN QUEEN.
The cast consists primarily of three drifters who want to hit it rich in Mexico. Bogart plays Fred C. Dobbs, in one of the greatest roles of his career. The character of Bob Curtin is played by Tim Holt, a "B" actor (in the quite literal sense of having acted in scores of "B" pictures) who nonetheless managed to get parts in some exceptionally great films, notably this one, THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS, and MY DARLING CLEMENTINE, as well as a small role in STAGECOACH (he plays the cavalry commander who rides a short distance with the stagecoach before departing). Both Bogart and Holt are excellent, but the film is more or less stolen by the great Walter Huston, John's father, in the last great role in a long and distinguished career as the veteran prospector Howard.
The film was based on a very great novel by the same title by one of the most reclusive authors in the history of literature. During his lifetime, the identify of B. Traven was unknown.

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.
