DescriptionThe Treasure of the Sierra Madre (Warner Brothers, 1948). Rolled, Fine/Very Fine. Silk Screen Banner (24" X 82") Philips Artwork.
John Huston's epic saga of treasure and man's greed made this one of the American Film Institute's 100 greatest American films ever made. Humphrey Bogart stars as Fred Dobbs, a perennial loser who dreams of having fortune and fame and pays the ultimate price in his quest. The role would bring Bogart critical acclaim, but the Oscars that year went to John Huston for Best Direction and Screenplay, and to Huston's father, Walter, for Best Supporting Actor. A second time offering at Heritage, this silk screen banner has mild edge wear, slight creases, small tears, and unobtrusive smudges. There is a tear from the left border into the title with masking tape on the verso, as well as paper tape on the verso. Rolled, Fine/Very Fine.
Estimate: $500 - $1,000.
