TCMers, I watched "Bacall on Bogart" again recently. I was intrigued by a short segment discussing "The Treasure Of The Sierra Madre." There is a screenshot of 3 strips of film, all showing a blooper where Bogart is unable to control his mule. I am assuming these were from backup cameras? Whatever their source, these strips of film were sitting somewhere doing nothing. I got the impression they were from Huston's private archives... Did Hawks use more than one camera when filming the B & B movies? More importantly, I am sure not every scene was nailed to everyone's satisfaction on the first take. The four B & B films may not be the greatest work anyone involved ever did, but they are all we have of them together, which makes them invaluable. Is there any chance WBA would go back and dig up every foot of film and transfer everything onto a collector's edition box set? These films are getting very old. Even under the best of conditions, they must be deteriorating. Has any vintage film ever been treated to such an extensive review? The 1945/46 alternate versions of The Big Sleep are a perfect example, and the additional footage was just what was included in the theatrical release. I'm certain there is more; any chance we will ever see it? RJM
