5.0 out of 5 stars When humanism becomes a fact,then we 'll gather at the river, 12 Dec. 2000
This review is from: 3 Godfathers [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Although when "The Three Godfathers", had been released in 1948, met a string of castigated reviews, this film is a true must for every fan of John Ford's films.Actually Ford has tackled twice with the same subject during the Hollywood silent period, usind in one of them his real life long friend, Harry Carey. So, the three godfathers come to be a dedication to Harry Carey, since during the main titles, one can see " To Harry Carey, a star of the early western sky" Moreover, The Three Godfathers introduce for the first time the son of Harry Carrey, Harry Carey Jr. in a magnificent performance accompanied by those of John Wayne (one of the best of his long-standing career) and Pedro Armendariz,Jr. The magnificent screenplay is signed by Frank S. Nuggent and Lawrence Stallings. The film discusses a real-life story in which three bandits found a dying woman in the desert and helped her to bear her child. Her last wish was these three to become godfathers of te child. I won't go on telling all the story, but i will finish with the lyrics sung at the end of the film "Shall we gather at the river, a beautiful beautiful river, gathered with the Saints at the river that flows by the throne of God?" That's all folks. I hope we 'll enjoy this magnificent film, and give way to many tears.
