3 Godfathers

3 Godfathers (1948) John Ford. John Wayne, Pedro Armendariz, Harry Carey, Jr., Ward Bond, Mae Marsh, Jane Darwell, Ben Johnson, Mildred Natwick. Sturdy, sentimental, sometimes beautiful rendition of Peter B. Kyne's oft-filmed saga of three bandits who "adopt'' a baby born in the desert. Final scene doesn't ring true, but Ford makes up for it in balance of film. Dedicated to the director's first star, Harry Carey, Sr.

Following the screenings our guest host Ben Mankiewicz will conduct an interview with biographers of the director, William Wellman, Jr., and Dan Ford, the grandson of John Ford

This classic movie has a seven film heritage. He film is something of a retelling of the story of The Three Wise Men in an American western context. Based on the novelette "Bronco Billy and the Baby," written by Peter B. Kyne, which appeared in The Saturday Evening Post in 1910. To read more about the seven version – click here.
