"3 Godfathers", 1948
Original Vintage Lobby Card Movie Poster (2 Cards)
Starring John Wayne
This is the most desirable card of the lobby card set and is one of the most desired John Wayne lobby cards from any of his films. An extraordinary scene with Wayne clutching an infant. The close-up, the colors, the scene are just incredible! What else needs to be said?
Because the lobby card set has TWO lobby cards with Wayne holding the baby, BOTH are including as a set as separating them would overlook the opportunity to have these cards from the films major scene paired together. The main “baby” scene card is in excellent condition with no major flaws. The other “baby” scene card only has a small chip out of the top left top border corner, not affecting the image area at all.
This is the first time we have acquired these cards in over 25 years of collecting. You're not likely to see this gem again after it sells. And, you get BOTH cards for one price.
NOTE: We have acquired the complete lobby card set from this classic. See the others below in the Also Recommend box. 3 Godfathers (MGM, 1948). Title Card (11" X 14"). Western.
Starring John Wayne, Pedro Armendáriz, Harry Carey Jr., Ward Bond, Mae Marsh, Mildred Natwick, Jane Darwell, Guy Kibbee, Dorothy Ford, Ben Johnson, and Charles Halton. Directed by John Ford.
A trio of outlaws (John Wayne, Pedro Armendariz, and Harry Carey Jr.), on the run from the law after robbing a bank, come across a lone pregnant woman (Mildred Natwick) who, shortly thereafter dies, in childbirth. Before she does, however, she makes the bandits promise to see her child to safety. Unable to deny the woman's final request, the three men set off to town with their precious cargo. This is a remake of director John Ford's 1916 film of the same name, which starred Harry Carey Sr.
