Description

    The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (Warner Brothers, 1948). Japanese B3 (14" X 20").
    Fred C. Dobbs (Humphrey Bogart) and Bob Curtin (Tim Holt), both down on their luck in Tampico, Mexico in 1925, meet up with a grizzled prospector named Howard (Walter Huston) and decide to join him in search of gold in the wilds of central Mexico. They find the treasure, but greed eventually takes its toll. John Huston's superb adventure -- based on the novel by B. Traven -- won three Oscars (including the first ever father-and-son awards for the Hustons), and is considered one of the greatest films ever made. This poster has the Motion Picture Export Association seal in the lower left indicating this as the original release Japanese poster. This seal was put into effect just after the end of World War II. This rarely-seen Japanese B3 has interesting, expressionistic artwork not seen in any other sheet on this title and is virtually free of flaws. Folded, Near Mint-.
