Spuren im Sand ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1948 in German and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nach einem Bankraub in Welcome, Arizona, fliehen die drei Outlaws Bob Hightower, Pedro Fuerte und "The Abilene Kid" in die Wüste. Dort finden die drei in einem Planwagen eine zurückgelassene schwangere Frau, die kurze Zeit darauf ihr Baby zur Welt bringt. Sie stirbt bei der Geburt, nimmt aber vorher den drei Flüchtigen das Versprechen ab, für das Kind zu sorgen. Beim Marsch durch die Wüste kommen Pedro und "The Abilene Kid" ums Leben - Bob kann das Baby retten und erreicht am Weihnachtsabend die Stadt New Jerusa- lem. Die fünfte Filmversion der 1913 erschienenen Erzählung von Peter B. Kyne ist als das "Krippenspiel des Western" (Joe Hembus) zum Klassiker geworden. John Ford selbst hatte bereits im Jahr 1919 unter dem Titel "Marked Men" eine Stummfilmfassung gedreht. Neben der Graham-Greene-Adaption "Befehl des Gewissens" (1947) zeugt dieses Remake am deutlichsten von Fords Religiosität: Der Film strotzt nur so von Bibelzitaten, die drei Helden nehmen quasi die Rollen der Heiligen Drei Könige ein
