Comments The Three Godfathers (Classic Reprint)

  • Debbie Zapata

    When I went to mark this title as Currently Reading, I was surprised to see that it was already checked off as read and had a five star rating. I honestly don't remember ever reading this before, so perhaps I gave it that rating in my early GR days, who knows. I do know I was familiar with the story because this book was the basis for the 1948 John Ford movie of the same name starring John Wayne, Pedro Armendariz, and Harry Carey Junior. This has been my favorite John Wayne movie since the first [...]


  • Julie Davis

    This little novella is worthy of Louis L'Amour and has inspired at least five movies, two of them from the silent film era. The most famous is 3 Godfathers starring John Wayne and directed by John Ford, which inspired one of my favorite movies, Tokyo Godfathers. So the story has staying power even in modern culture and other lands.This little story is the backbone of all those films. This is not the story of the Wise Men, it is the story of Bad Men, we are told on the title page. The three Bad M [...]

    Peter Kyne's book has been made into four movies so far: John Ford's silent 'the Marked Men' in 1919 (now lost), 'the Three Godfathers' in 1936, John Ford's 'the 3 Godfathers' in 1948, and the Japanese anime 'Tokyo Godfathers' in 2003.This is a beautiful story, steeped in western flavor, about atonement and redemption. Written in 1913, there are biblical quotes, there's a colloquial (now racially inappropriate) reference to cactus, a bank robbery, and multiple deaths - any one of which may offen [...]

    I loved this little book. Written a century ago, its style would be perfect for a read-aloud (not for young children, but for grownups -- I could picture the adults in a family settling down to enjoy it together after the small children were asleep. The prose was lyrical and carried the reader through the story of The Three Bad Men who, on the run in the southwestern-US desert after the fourth in their number was killed in a bank robbery gone wrong, encounter a young widow in labor -- but no wat [...]

    This is just a little book sitting behind the counter at work so, being a quite Monday morning, I read it through within 45 minutes. So cute and sweet, (view spoiler)[but I hope the last godfather gets to raise the bairn himself. (hide spoiler)]


  • David

    This clever and very short novel (83 small pages -- does that make it a novella?) from 1913 is the source for several films, including the John Ford/John Wayne "3 Godfathers" from 1948. Good tale. OK, maybe 3.5 stars


  • Wayne Hastings

    While I enjoy the John Wayne/John Ford movie collaboration, this book is totally different and inspiring. It's a compelling story of God's grace, hope and provision. Well done.
