Editorial Reviews

Henry Fonda, Victor Mature and Walter Brennan star in John Ford's acclaimed film that climaxes with the famous gunfight at O.K. Corral. As Wyatt Earp (Fonda) and his brothers head for a peaceful life of ranching in 1880's California, tragedy moves Wyatt to pin on a badge once more. But when he becomes the law in Tombstone, home to Doc Holliday (Mature) and the Clanton boys, it's only a matter of time until the Earps and Doc face the Clantons in one of the most remembered battles of the Wild West. Featuring Linda Darnell and Ward Bond, My Darling Clementine is considered to be one of Ford's finest films.

5.0 out of 5 stars John Ford's Poetic View of the West February 9, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
If you're looking for a straight-forward, factual presentation of the events leading up to the 'Gunfight at the O.K. Corral', please buy 'Wyatt Earp', or 'Tombstone' from if you prefer your history more spiritual, and want to see a master storyteller paint a visual canvas of a West that may never have existed, but SHOULD have, then this film will be a treasured part of your video collection!
John Ford knew Wyatt Earp, personally, and was familiar with the events surrounding the Tombstone shootout, but one of his greatest assets as a director was his ability to look beyond simple facts, and focus on legend. 'My Darling Clementine' is a story of icons, of the Loner, battling his own weaknesses, and creating something lasting, then walking away, to allow Civilization to grow. It's a classic theme in Ford's work (he would return to it in 'The Searchers', and 'The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance'), as well as in many other directors' westerns ('Shane', 'A Fistful of Dollars', 'The Wild Bunch').
While Wyatt Earp (wonderfully portrayed by Henry Fonda) is surrounded by his brothers in the film, he has an aloofness that makes his character both complex, and enigmatic at the same time. At the film's start, he's a cowpuncher, who had walked away from the responsibilities of being a lawman, finding satisfaction in the hard work and solitary life of the range. When the Clantons (led by Walter Brennan, in one of his greatest roles), first approach the brothers, while Wyatt accepts an invitation to get a taste of city life, it's clear that it will be a brief stay, before he moves on, and he brushes aside any overtures of friendship.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shakespeare in Tombstone June 7, 2004
Of the many movies that I love and own, this is one of the DVDs I would grab if the house was on fire.
My Darling Clementine is fundamentally about the shootout at the OK Corral, arguably the most famous 30 seconds in American history. But in John Ford's loving hands, the story takes its time getting there and, in the process, becomes as graceful and easily beautiful a piece of film-making as you will ever see.
In this age when movie goers prize realism, sheer violence, and de-mythology, Ford has become something of a whipping boy for those who point out the glaring historical inaccuracies present in Hollywood's traditional portrayal of the American West. These folks miss the larger picture and are the poorer for their narrow, fashionable view. In this archetypal story of Wyatt Earp, Doc Holiday, and the Clanton family, Ford was not interested in historical detail. He was creating legends, not historical accounts for the archives.
Ford was a film maker. When a movie lover approaches a Ford film, it becomes necessary to give oneself over to the power of film. Once one does that, tremendous pleasures await. Such as: the townspeople of Tombstone having a dance around the skeletal frame of a half-built church while the huge, flat buttes of Monument Valley tower in the background; or Henry Fonda as Earp watching with great sympathy as Victor Mature (Doc Holiday) recites Hamlet's suicide soliloquy in a barroom (as hokey as this sounds, it is Fonda's expression that will move you, I guarantee).

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully Paced Western April 1, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have always put"My Darling Clementine" in my top-ten westerns as do some critics,and after viewing it recently on the excellent DVD version I am considering it to be the best! The alternative version on the disc might not be to everyones taste but westerns should be slow paced(check out the excellent "Open Range")not just shoot-ups added for padding every 20 minutes or so. One of the best scenes in this movie or any other western is the excellent dance scene,especially the moment when Henry Fonda asks Kathy Downes to dance. Definetely Ford at his best and Victor Mature,s best hour as well. Kudos to all for a well produced DVD package

MY DARLING CLEMENTINE is a Western enigma. On the one hand it's about as messed up when it comes to history as it can get but on the other hand, when considering its cinematography, star quality and pure western appeal, it's nothing short of a masterpiece.

Yes, the story involves the Earps, Doc Holliday and the Clantons and the story is set in Tombstone, Arizona, but that's where history ends. From chronological problems about the relative age of the Earp brothers, who is who and who dies when or at all, MY DARLING CLEMENTINE is nothing short of a circus! History clearly shows that while Morgan was shot in the back and killed by unknown assailants (and not Virgil), Virgil, who was crippled in Tombstone, went on to a career as a law enforcement officer in California. Also very little is known about James Earp. One thing is certain. James did not die as a teenager during a raid on the Earp cattle herd.

Another interesting historic problem arises with the portrayal of Doc Holliday. It's historically easy to show that Doc was a Georgian (not from Boston) and that he died in Colorado of his terminal tuberculosis (and not of gunshot wounds at the OK Corral in Tombstone). While Doc derived his famous name from his being a doctor in a life that preceded his career as a gambler and bloodthirsty killer, his specialty was dentistry and not surgery. So when he performs a medical procedure on his girlfriend, wounded by Billy Clanton, her hopes are slim in Holliday's care unless, of course, she was shot in the mouth.

Perhaps the historical problems are why it's titled MY DARLING CLEMENTINE and not WYATT EARP or TOMBSTONE.
