Audience Reviews for Three Bad Men

terrific film, with compositions worthy of murnau and bits of hilarious business. the only ford silent i've seen but what a treasure. seemingly all ford's themes are already present

Great great great classic John Ford western that would probably be more famous if it wasn't silent. Nonetheless, this flick is funny and touching and exciting and fun.
