Fred Dobbs and Bob Curtin, two Americans searching for work in Mexico, convince an old prospector to help them mine for gold in the Sierra Madre Mountains.
Perhaps in retaliation for a rift with John Huston over the editing of Key Largo (1948), Warner Bros. released both film across the country in a double bill without mentioning Huston's name in its promotion ads.
Say buddy, will you stake a fellow Am...
During the gunfight with the bandidos at the gold mine, Dobbs runs out of bullets while firing his rifle. He is shown reloading it just as the shooting stops. With absolutely no sound coming from the film, Dobbs fires the rifle(trigger pulled and hammer falls) but no noise or muzzle blast is shown. Some may call it a misfire, but there is no sound as the hammer falls and Dobbs would have reacted to a misfire. Just another case of bad editing.
