3 Godfathers

I have a confession to make:  my political leanings notwithstanding, I am a huge John Wayne/John Ford fan.  Westerns made by that remarkable duo had a major impact on my views of right and wrong and bravery and honor…and then I got old enough to, for lack of a better word, appreciate The Duke’s politics.  Ah well.  Anyway, 3 Godfathers, which was made in 1948, is probably one of Wayne’s lesser known films.  It has all of the John Ford magic:  antiheros, men on the run, a baby that needs caring…great stuff generally, let alone in this time and in this age.
