This review is for the actual item I received from Amazon. If you are after a, "pure movie review", I suggest you look at the International Movie Database. There you will find many reviews without regard to the delivery mechanism.

Multi-Format does not include a DVD.

Most Blu-ray's also included a copy of the movie on DVD. The term, "Multi-Format" would imply you get more than just the Blu-ray.

"The Treasure of the Sierra Madre" is Bogart's 2nd best role. Obviously, "Casablanca" would be his best role.

The movie is a masterpiece. 5-stars ,very happy to have this in my movie collection.

Fred C. Dobbs, as portrayed by Humphrey Bogart in THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE, is a man who undergoes a rapid and malignant metamorphosis. At the beginning of the story Fred is a likeable, down-on-his-luck American, panhandling and hustling around Tampico, Mexico. His later bouts of agitated paranoia eventually fester into an act of full-blown psychotic violence; Dobbs suffers a kind of cosmic justice after this incident.

In contrast to Bogart's totally despicable Dobbs is the delightful Walter Huston, whose portrayal of Howard, an old-time miner hoping to at long-last strike paydirt, got him a well-deserved Best Supporting Actor statue in 1949. Tim Holt as the noble, generous and loyal Bob Curtin becomes an ironic victim who has the audience's complete sympathy.

This double-Oscar winner for director John Huston is a "classic" in every sense of the word and belongs in all home libraries of Bogart fans, and any admirer of superior motion picture art. Highest recommendation. (Watch for uncredited performances by Robert Blake as a small Mexican boy, John Huston as a white-suited American in Tampico and Ann Sheridan as a streetwalker.)

KEY LARGO was Humphrey Bogart's very next film. (Co-stars Lauren Bacall, Edward G. Robinson and Lionel Barrymore.)

Parenthetical number preceding title is a 1 to 10 IMDb viewer poll rating.

(8.4) Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948) - Humphrey Bogart/Walter Huston/Tim Holt/Bruce Bennett/Barton MacLane (uncredited: John Huston/Robert Blake/Martin Garralaga/Jack Holt/Ann Sheridan)

Loved the VHS version. The DVD quality is even better for this classic film of greed. If you're a fan of Humphrey Bogart, this is a film to add to your collection. Three strangers go off into the mountains of Mexico to find gold. They do, but that isn't the end of things. Well done black and white film directed by John Huston and co-starring his father Walter.

The container is made of card rather than the usual plastic. The film quality is excellent, the film itself being one of the best ever produced. What is more, the DVD shipped from the USA (Region 1) played on my UK Sony DVD player, which is Region 2. My reasons for giving this item only four stars are, first, there is some small print on the back of the box that says it is not for sale outside the USA or Canada (oops!) and, second, the last few frames after the closing credits contain a message that seems to be in Mandarin. Neither of these interfere with the viewing of the film itself. It would have been nice to obtain this DVD in the UK but, for some strange reason, I am told its distribution has been discontinued here.

These days television fails to entertain even with the so called "Reality Shows". It just demonstrates how the entertainment business can no longer be creative. Treasure of the Sierra Madre is worth watching when TV is boring. I admit some of the background jungle noises was inconsistent with the area they were when searching for gold. However, entertaining anyway. Do you know who played the young Mexican kid selling lottery tickets to Bogart? It was a surprise to me also. In closing when all else fails watch this movie and the African Queen. Both movies do not involve sex, drug use or foul language. Just movies that make you want to take on a similar adventure so you don't channel surf 280 channels just to arrive at watching "Leave it to Beaver" which by the way is not a series about wood eating mammals.

"I don't got to show you no stinking badge," one of the more remembered lines in film history. The Treasure of the Sierra Madre holds nothing back. John Huston made one powerful film and statement with this gem. Bogart at his best can be said about all of his works, but "Treasure" stands in a remarkably unique way truly one of his best remembered performances. Huston's father, Walter, earned an Oscar for his work, and deservedly so. This is a romantic film ... the Love of Gold ! Taken place in Mexico during the worst of times, "Treasure" reflects just how far people will go and what they will do for riches only to find great misfortune. Truly great entertainment.
