The Treasure of the Sierra Madre Movie Summary

Dobbs and Curtin are two out of work Americans living in Tampico, Mexico, ca. 1925. They meet Howard, an old prospector, who puts the idea of mining gold to make money in their head. The three men pool their money to finance a gold mining expedition in the Sierra Madre mountains.

The journey is perilous. They escape from a train where a group of banditos, led by an hombre named Gold Hat, attackes them on horseback, and then barely survive an inhospitable terrain that wears on Dobbs and Curtin. Howard, on the other hand, is a old pro at this and gets along just fine with all the obstacles.

Howard finds a spot for the group to mine for gold, and its a successful venture, but as quickly as they strike it rich, Dobbs’ greed gets the better of him. Secretly, he wants the whole booty for himself, and in time, he will do anything to get it.

  1. Thanks for mentioning my name, Chris! Again I hope The Red Shoes makes your list, Lori(hopefully instead of While You Were Sleeping, haha)
    also, I love Bogie but can see why he’s not appealing to some film fans. I recommend In A Lonely Place if you haven’t seen it, it’s one of his best performances. Happy new year to you all.

    1. Hi Eddie. You’re welcome, and Happy New Year to you!
