The Treasure of the Sierra Madre is a 1948 Western adventure film written and directed by John Huston. The film revolves around a group of gold prospectors that have set out for the Sierra Madre Mountains of Mexico during the early 20th century. The film opens by introducing characters Fred C. Dobbs (Humphrey Bogart) and Bob Curtin (Tim Holt). Fred and Bob are moping around Tampico, Mexico in 1925 when they begin to work for contractor Pat McCormick (Barton MacLane). The characters relationship with McCormich goes sour and they eventually have to force to pay their rightful wages. While waiting for McCormick's payment, the two find an experienced old prospector called Howard (Walter Hustin). The prospector says that the Sierra Madre Mountains are rich with gold, and that he will help them find if they are willing to pay his way. Fred and Bob agree to the deal, and together they leave Tampico with dreams of wealth. Little do they know that their future will only get worse before it gets better.moreless
