3 Godfathers (1948)

Three outlaws on the run risk their freedom and their lives to return a newborn to civilization.

DirJohn Ford CastJohn Wayne , Pedro Armendariz , Harry Carey Jr. .
C- 106 min, , CC
CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: 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. Remade for TV as THE GODCHILD.

D: Roy Rowland. Margaret O'Brien, Angela Lansbury, George Murphy, Phyllis Thaxter, Warner Anderson, Rhys Williams, Barry Nelson, Connie Gilchrist.
