Treasure of the Sierra Madre, The: Special Edition (Dbl DVD)
John Huston won the Academy Award(R) for writing and directing this powerful saga that pits gold and greed in the wilds of Mexico and stars his father (Walter Huston) and Humphrey Bogart. Year: 1948 Director: John Huston Starring: Humphrey Bogart, Walter Huston, Tim Holt]]>
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

The more gold they dig out, the more greed takes over and each man is worried the other will steal it while they sleep. Bogart especially. becomes
more and more paranoid and consumed with greed. He ends up with all the gold but goes mad trying to get it down the mountain. A lot of twists toward the end when the old timer and the young guy find the donkeys, but no gold.
However, If I was rating the movie I would only give it three stars. I was disappointed by it. I went on a classic movie bender a few months ago, watching Touch of Evil, Casablanca, African Queen, Thin Man, Maltese Falcon, Gojira and Sierra Madre. This was the only one I didn't love.
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.)
