Peter B. Kyne's bestselling 1913 novel, "The Three Godfathers", had been adapted twice before as successful Universal Silents, the first a six-reeler in 1916 and the second a John Ford remake, "Marked Men" in 1920. See more »
Universal also issued this movie as a silent, with film length 1778.81 m. See more »
I viewed this film as a historical piece on locations. It is footage of the town of the old mining town of Bodie, pre-fire which destroyed 90% of the remaining town in 1933. It is now a state park and the official ghost town of Calif. Having visited several times, it was amazing to see actual businesses and buildings that no longer stand. And the ones that do - 80 years later. The church that is seen in several of the exteriors is still there today, but none of the buildings seen between it and the main street exist. This would have been, in 1929, a long way to travel for a location shot with crew and equipment. I'm glad they did.
