Description
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 the 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 Western retelling of the Biblical Three Wise Men tale remains a scenic and thematic masterpiece. Ford adds color 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.

    Comments about this product:

    This is atypical John Wayne 1948 western. Read comment by Azusa, CA; this person caught the spirit of the story well. Correction, Mrs. Hightower, the woman (singular) versus women (plural), gave birth to a son.

    These bank robbers were given a gift, the honor of naming the baby after them. Her husband is presumed dead since he wandered off after wrecking the spring. They are determined to deliver the baby to safety, a promise.

    I recognized some of the scenery, they were crossing Death Valley National Park. You can only visit it during winter safely without killing yourself. The most dangerous desert in north america, and hundreds of miles by automobile. So, if at times it seems slow, just try to cross it yourself without a vehicle.

    I invite you to watch, even if I am not a John Wayne fan. Ward Bond, called Buck Sweet, was Wiley as a Coyote. Will Mrs. Sweet be allowed to adopt her nephew or will John Wayne keep Robert William Pedro and go to prison?

    Plus, most people miss the hidden theme, the 3 magi. It was Christmas season when this tale took place.

      This was a wonderful movie. Saw it several times on TCM and when I saw it at the Shop, just had to have it. My nieces and nephew watched it with me and just loved it.

      John Wayne a Babysitter? A strange thought, until The 3 Godfathers came about. The Duke happens across a pregnant Women who is dying after giving birth. He promises the Women He will protect William Robert Pedro Hightower from harm. The following story is heartwarming, funny and tragic.
