Do you know your treasure movies?


Dana Mentink here, with thoughts of treasure on my mind. This could be because I’ve just finished up the first book in a three book treasure seeker series for Harlequin. It got me to thinking about all the wonderful movies that have focused on the desire to find treasure. I thought it would be fun to wrestle up a little quiz. Here is a list of movies about treasure. Can you name the prize being sought after in each flick? Got your thinking caps on? Okay. Here goes.

Romancing the Stone
National Treasure
Treasure of the Sierra Madre
Goonies
The Librarian: Quest for the Spear
Paint Your Wagon
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

Dana, great post. I saw Romancing the stone, and know they were looking for a stone, found a rabbit, stone inside.
I own National Treasure but haven't watching it. Then, I haven't seen the next four. Indiana Jones, though, I saw. That was the one with Sean Connery, right? LOL. I was on a date at that one. Goodlooking date. I don't remember much about the movie.

Fortune and glory, kid, fortune and glory. That's what Indy was always looking for. His dad was searching for the Holy Grail. For the others I'm guessing stone (nice big gem), national treasure (huge rooms full of it), and a spear. Actually, I don't remember seeing the other ones.

Good job, Gloria, you know your movies! I remember in Paint Your Wagon they're trying to figure out how to snatch all the gold dust that sifted through the floor of the saloon, I think it was.
