. . . in 1916 when Edward J LeSaint directed the Peter B Kyne story. It starred Harry Carey . . . 1919 Ford directed it for the first time calling the film Marked Men . . . 1929 it was remade with the title Hells Heroes . . . and in 1936 as 3 Godfathers . . . the 1948 version when the veterans son played The Abilene Kid one of the outlaws and Ford dedicated the film to Harry Carey, who had died the year before, the bright star of the early western sky.
As Senta noted, that is an impressive history of the story on film . . . that's one of the reasons we are so happy to have you here, Arthur - you are a wealth of information (plus, you're such a nice guy ).
