Treasure of the Sierra Madre/Maltese Falcon DVD

$18.99

Gold in the hills, avarice in the hearts of men. Two hard-luck drifters (Humphrey Bogart and Tim Holt) and a grizzled prospector (Walter Huston) discover gold. Then greed and paranoia set in. Shot in Mexico, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre cost a then-huge $3 million — and led to a showdown. Jack Warner argued top-billed Bogart shouldn’t die before the finale. But John Huston stood his ground and won Academy Awards for his direction and screenplay.* And his dad took the Best Supporting Actor Oscar. Without awards, but with enduring acclaim, is Bogart’s performance, transforming from a likable hobo to a heartless thug simmering in greed. Treasure’s place on the American Film Institute’s Top 100 American Films list reaffirms it’s still a powerful movie.
A gallery of high-living lowlifes will stop at nothing to get their sweaty hands on a jewel-encrusted falcon. Detective Sam Spade (Humphrey Bogart) wants to find out why — and who’ll take the fall for his pertner’s murder. An all-star cast (including Sydney Greenstreet, Mary Astor, Peter Lorre and Elisha Cook Jr.) joins Bogart in this crackling mystery masterwork written for the screen (from Dashiell Hammett’s novel) and directed by John Huston. This nominee for 3 Academy Awards* — Best Picture, Supporting Actor (Greenstreet) and Screenplay (Huston) — catapulted Bogart to stardom and launched Huston’s directorial career. All with a bird and a bang!
