Fugitive bank robbers Robert (John Wayne), William (Harry Carey Jr.) and Pedro (Pedro Armendariz) stand by a grave in the desert. Caring for the newborn baby of the woman they just buried makes any escape impossible. But they do not go back on their promise to her. They will not abandon little Robert William Pedro.
Director John Ford's original telling of the Biblical story of the Three Wise Men against a Western backdrop remains a thematic masterpiece with stunning visuals. Ford colors this feature with images of sweeping vistas captured by cameraman Winton Hoch, who won two of his three Oscars® for Ford films.
Once again, the populist Ford shows that even men of questionable character can follow that inner star of Bethlehem to their own redemption.
