Three poverty-stricken dreamers head out to the Mexican mountains in search of gold. They find their booty, and, at first, their friendship grows along with their fortune. But then paranoia and greed begin to take over, endangering all they have managed to gain.
A good Joe, a bad egg and a fast-talking old coot team up to prospect for gold south of the border, but when the gold starts flowing, greed breeds badge-less bandits and mutual mistrust. A classic! Academy Award Nominations: 4, including Best Picture. Academy Awards: 3, including Best Director, Best Supporting Actor--Walter Huston, Best Screenplay.
THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE was added to the Library of Congress National Film Registry in 1990.
