Product Description

John Ford directs this classic paean to the Old West. Wyatt Earp (Henry Fonda) and his brothers Virgil (Tim Holt) and Morgan (Ward Bond) head for a peaceful ranching life in California, but tragedy strikes and makes Wyatt take up the Sheriff's badge again in the town of Tombstone - home to Doc Holliday (Victor Mature) and the notorious Clanton Boys. It isn't long before the Earps, Holliday and the Clantons face off in the most famous gunfight in history - at the OK Corral.

Probably the best movie of this director: a true celebration of the legend of the American west. The movie tells the classic story of the gunfight at the OK Corral with sheriff Wyatt Earp: while it isn't historically realistic, it outshines ALL later attempt to do a more accurate version of the story. The reason is simple: Ford always said that "the legend is more interesting than the truth". Of course it's a Hollywood movie, and it's not a revisionist Peckimpah western, but it has interesting characters (even the lesser one such as the barman are believable and add some human touches), a solid plot, a great screenplay (don't miss the Shakespearean actor who wants to perform in a saloon!!!) and an EXTRAORDINARY B&W cinematography.
The FOX cassette version is very good!

I never tire of watching this classic. The characters are so clearcut and one feels some empathy with all of them even the villains who are a product of a hard country and ignorance. The roughness and cruelty of the wild west is all there. Unusually even the romance angle, which usually ruins most westerns is treated in a simple, unsophisticated manner. The scene with Doc Holliday and the travelling actor leaves one terribly moved and as the story surges towards its inevitably tragic conclusion you know that no one is going to end up happy but this is the way it has to be. Ford never made a better western.

When people say `They don't make them like that anymore' this marvellous film is the sort of thing they mean. You all know the story so i won't bother telling you. Wonderful performances from a never-better Henry Fonda as Wyatt Earp(check out the dancing!), Victor Mature as Doc Holliday (got a bit of a cough doncha know) and Walter Brennan as the head of the somewhat parentally challenged Clanton family. Beautifully shot in black-and-white, full of dry humour and, basically, one great scene after another. Who cares if it's historically accurate, it's a great film. See it.
Oh and of course as it's a John Ford film you get to hear `Shall we gather by the river'. What more could you ask for?

Every scene is brilliantly done; there are some classic Western elements wherein: a man does what a man has to do; a man and a woman are threatened with and shown their potential for happiness before delaying or denying themselves a future; a once great man sacrifices himself for the good of humanity despite his faults; all of the supporting characters have back-stories which are worked out with equal and lasting believability. Humane and convincing performances all-round particularly Victor Mature, surely one of the great underrated film actors who may have been hopeless on stage but put in front of a camera is a great presence here certainly. Moments of comedy and pathos and cruelty and lightness and hope all superbly filmed by a luminous camera. It's a cracking story and a superbly amusing and literate script which uses Shakespeare in a thrilling moment as well as any film I've seen ever has (Withnail and I is good at that of course!). To watch and watch again with ever-increasing delight. A masterpiece.

Format: Blu-ray
John Ford's rather graceful and restrained 1946 take on the legend of Wyatt Earp ambles its way onto Blu ray from American classic movie experts Criterion. As with all of the Criterion Collection My Darling Clementine is region A locked meaning that you WILL require a multi-region Blu ray player to view the content on this disc. As I have found with a number of Criterion Blu rays the region coding can be bypassed on certain Panasonic decks by pressing stop on the mis-matched region screen then top menu. I can confirm that this particular release plays perfectly with this trick on my Panasonic BD80. As far as I know this only works on Panasonic equipment. As a footnote it is worth noting that Criterion have presented two cuts of My Darling Clementine on this special Blu ray edition. A 4k digital restoration of the original theatrical version running 97 minutes and an HD presentation of John Ford's prefered 103 minute pre-release version.

Synopsis:
Whilst driving their cattle on route to California Wyatt Earp(Henry Fonda) and his three brothers Virgil (Tim Holt), Morgan (Ward Bond) and James(Don Garner) are approached by local cattle ranch owner Old Man Clanton (Walter Brennan) who offers the brothers a price for their entire herd stating that a percentage will not survive the perilous journey out west. When Wyatt declines it appears there are no hard feelings with Clanton even recommending the nearby town of Tombstone as a possible place of respite for the weary travellers. Leaving their youngest brother James to watch over the herd, Wyatt, Virgil and Morgan head off to town but the evening is soon disrupted when a drunken Indian decides to shoot up the saloon.

Format: DVD
Here is a movie which practically hums with excellence, from the star performances of Henry Fonda, Victor Mature and Walter Brennan to the extraordinary craftsmanship of director John Ford. I've watched a lot of Ford movies; many I like and many I don't. My Darling Clementine is, in my view, Ford's most accomplished film. The movie may seem to be about a gun fight showdown, or about the wary relationship between Wyatt Earp and John Holliday, or about a shy romance between an upright man with little experience with love and a proper young woman who decides to be a school marm, or about honor and justice and retribution. It's all of this. Most of all, it's about how the west changed. Ford shows us not through big gestures and symbolic, obvious actions, but through the little gestures of some good people and some extremely well-crafted set pieces.

The Earp brothers led by Wyatt (Henry Fonda) have their cattle rustled and their youngest brother, James, killed just outside the wild town of Tombstone. Earp is sure Old Man Clanton (Walter Brennan) and his four sons are responsible. He decides to stay awhile as Marshal and see about a little legal retribution. He encounters John Holliday (Victor Mature), a self-loathing former doctor, now a quick-shooting killer and gambler, ill with tuberculosis, who runs things in the saloon and is drinking himself to death. Holliday has had a relationship for quite a while with a bargirl named Chihuahua (Linda Darnel). Then Clementine Carter (Cathy Downs) shows up on a stage from back east looking for Holliday. She loves him and wants to rescue him. And Earp finds himself thinking that Clementine is the nicest, prettiest woman he's ever met. "I love your town in the morning, Marshal," she tells him. "The air is so clean and clear...
