john harry carey robert

(ABC, 11/26/1974, 90 mins). An update of the oft-filmed “The Three Godfathers,” previously made in 1916 with Harry Carey, repeating his role in John Ford’s 1919 version (“Marked Men”), in William Wyler’s 1929 adaptation (“Hell’s Heroes”) with Charles Bickford, in Richard Boleslavski’s 1936 production with Chester Morris and Walter Brennan, and in John Ford’s Technicolor version with John Wayne in 1948, dedicated to Harry Carey. Three Civil War prisoners, fleeing from both Confederates and Apaches, risk their freedom and lives to aid a dying woman and become guardians of her newborn child.
