Plot Sypnosis:

Heralded as 'John Ford's Legend of the Southwest!' by M-G-M upon release, "3 GODFATHERS" is one of the most impressive collaborations between legends John Wayne and John Ford. The story tells of fugitive bank robbers Robert (John Wayne), William (Harry Carey, Jr.), and Pedro (Pedro Armendariz) stand at a desert grave. Caring for the newborn infant of a woman they just buried will ruin any chance of escape. But they won't go back on their promise to her. They won't abandon little Robert William Pedro. Director John Ford's retelling of the Biblical Three Wise Men tale remains a scenic and thematic masterpiece. Ford adds Technicolor® to his feature-film palette, capturing stunning vistas via cinematographer Winton Hoch, who would win two of his three Academy Awards® for Ford films. Again, populist-minded Ford asserts that even men of dissolute character can follow that inner star of Bethlehem to their own redemption.

Based on the oft-filmed 1913 novel by Peter B. Kyne, this Blu-ray presentation not only contains the 1948 M-G-M Technicolor triumph, but also as a "special feature" the rarely seen, earlier 1936 M-G-M production entitled "THREE GODFATHERS" starring Chester Morris and Lewis Stone, with both the 1936 and 1948 films each meticulously remastered in 1080p HD for unprecedented quality.
