Product description

A search for gold in the mountains of Mexico leads three American prospectors to both treasure and loss in John Huston's screenplay for his acclaimed and much-studied 1948 film. This volume provides the full text of the screenplay with extensive annotations, production and cast credits, a research inventory and frame enlargements that feature Humphrey Bogart, Walter and John Huston and Alfonso Bedoya in their movie roles. James Naremore contrasts the film with the original anticapitalist novel by B. Traven and describes director Huston's art in the historical context of 1940s Hollywood.
