Cover art for this disc of THE MARK OF THE HAWK (USA/UK-1957) has a high-contrast repro of Sidney Poitier's face at bottom with a hawk above and to the left. Background colors shift from red-orange at top to olive green along the bottom edge.
It's part of the TREASURE BOX COLLECTION series: a gloss-finished booklet-type card stock sleeve within which the DVD is held in place on the left by a vertical midline slit in the paper. On the interior right hand page are photos of a dozen other TBC titles, such as the Rutger Hauer actioner BEYOND JUSTICE (Italy-1992) and COLD SWEAT (Italy/France/Belgium-1970), with Charles Bronson, Liv Ullman, Jill Ireland and James Mason.
Once the disc loads, a PLAY MOVIE screen appears. There are no other options. The DVD is encoded with eight chapter stops (#1 is opening titles), but to access these you must click through them from your remote, or if watching on a PC player (such as PowerDVD) by right-clicking the mouse to open the program's option window.
During the title sequence, a black frame appears around the picture. This shrinks once the movie begins but is still visible as a thin line. Although a Technicolor movie, hues have faded from the source print. Not entirely colorless, but definitely not vibrant Technicolor. Dub isn't as crisp as a studio release and audio lacks hgh end due to a thick layer of filtering.
TREASURE BOX's transfer is watchable but far from perfect; packaging is as space-saving as it gets. 2.5 stars at best.
