The Sierra Madre is a mountain range in Mexico.
In 1939, Indiana Jones assisted his friend Astorga in recovering an Aztec sun god statue from a bandit village in the foothills of the Sierra Madre. After a train chase, he gave the artifact to Astorga for his museum.
Behind the scenesEdit
In the early development of what became Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, the story began in Mexico. While the artifact recovery and train chase would make it into the final film, the Mexico scenes were ultimately replaced with the young Indiana Jones sequence in 1912.
