The Treasure of the Sierra Madre

 (1948)

Drifters Fred C Dobbs and Curtin share a cheap flophouse and meet Howard, a seemingly crazy old man who regales them with stories about prospecting for gold. Dobbs and Curtin cobble together what cash they can get a hold of, and along with Howard, plan a prospecting expedition. Dobbs promises that anything they dig up will be split three ways, but Howard doesn't believe them. As the gold is mined the men become increasingly distrustful, and soon turn against one other.

The Treasure of the Sierra Madre Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5


Editor's Note: the Blu-ray release of 'The Treasure of the Sierra Madre' is presented at its original aspect ratio of 1.37:1. The images included in this review are not representative of the disc's quality.

Now, this is what a classic Warner black and white Blu-ray should look like! I'm still preparing for brickbats to come my way over some qualms I had with The Maltese Falcon's image quality, but I'm more convinced than ever that my assessment of that film isn't completely crazy after having seen the spectacular results of The Treasure of the Sierra Madre's VC-1 encoded 1080p 1.37:1 image. Yes, of course Sierra Madre is seven years newer than Falcon, but that alone can't completely account for the wonderfully sharp image we're presented here. There's none of the even minor softness I discussed in my Falcon review. Instead, we are greeted with impeccable levels of detail, and rich and almost palpable contrast, with deep, inky blacks and beautiful gray shades that bring out every nuance of Ted McCord's luscious cinematography. The dusty scenes in the desert never devolve into digital noise, and the set-bound pieces are rich with shadow detail. Grain is completely natural looking, giving the film a beautifully rich texture. Even usually tricky items like herringbone patterns on some men's suitjackets don't lead to any artifacting.


The Treasure of the Sierra Madre Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5


The Treasure of the Sierra Madre is presented on Blu-ray with a very clean and crisp sounding lossless DTS-HD Master Audio mono mix. While the soundfield is obviously very narrow, dialogue, sound effects (especially some nice wind effects) and Max Steiner's glorious score are all perfectly balanced. Madre suffers from the same age-related hiss that Falcon does, though in this case it's a bit more negligible. That said, some extreme highs are slightly tinny sounding here, probably more the result of the original recording techniques than anything else. All in all, though, this is a problem free soundtrack when taking its age into consideration.
