Two down-on-their luck Americans searching for work in 1920s Mexico convince an old prospector to help them mine for gold. Starring Humphrey Bogart.

Two rough-and-tumble wanderers meet up with a veteran prospector in Mexico and head into the Sierra Madre mountains to find gold. Although they discover treasure, they also find plenty of trouble, not only from ruthless bandits lurking in the dangerous Mexican wilderness but from their own insecurities and greed, which threaten to bring conflict at any moment. The 1947 Oscar winner for Best Picture, directed by John Huston and starring Humphrey Bogart in an unforgettable role.
