Roy Earle (Humphrey Bogart) is a crook who couldn’t go straight even if he wanted to. Pardoned out of prison at the start of Raoul Walsh’s High Sierra thanks to a little string-pulling by aged gangster Big Mac (Donald MacBride), Roy owes his freedom to the fact that his services are needed for a heist that will likely send him right back to the pen. Roy’s reputation precedes him, and much to his chagrin, because when Big Mac dispatches him to the Sierra Nevada mountains to lead a heist at a ritzy California resort, he finds that even rural farmers have heard tell of his exploits.
