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.

Format: Blu-ray
With Criterion, you always know what you're getting ahead of time when you purchase any of the Blu-rays and DVD'S that this great company has released over the years and that's certainly true of their newest release, John Ford's "My Darling Clementine"(1946). I've owned every video presentation of this great film over the years(VHS, DVD) but never liked the picture quality and always thought it was too dark and not the way that Ford intended audiences to see his picture. Those concerns have been put to rest with this new Criterion release which is absolutely stunning. According to the liner notes in the enclosed booklet: "This new digital transfer was created in 4K resolution from a 35 mm nitrate composite fine-grain held by the Museum of Modern Art. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps jitter, and flicker were manually removed." Those who have any doubts about keeping their old VHS or DVD copies of "Clementine" until something better comes along can put those doubts away. Criterion's new Blu-ray of "My Darling Clementine" will be the industry standard for many years to come. The story is not very accurate(based on Stuart Lake's biography of Wyatt Earp) but to quote a line from another Ford film: "When the legend becomes fact, print the legend" and is enjoyable all the same. Ford used the great cinematographer Joe MacDonald to film "Clementine" and nearly every shot in the film is pristine(bitrate: 26.99) and looks glorious on Blu-ray. Even the night time scenes which were a problem in previously released versions are clearer now and you can see the smallest details. Shadows are very prominent during these scenes as well as some of the daylight scenes with blacks, whites and grays being evenly balanced though out.Read more ›

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 Amazon.com...But 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.

An update on the below review: I would like to add that I have just watched the new Criterion Collection Blu-Ray edition of this film, and the quality of picture is outstanding. Far better than the previous editions on DVD; and you should certainly purchase it for this reason. HOWEVER, do NOT throw out your DVD version because the commentary by Scott Eyman on the DVD release is far superior to the commentary of Joseph McBride on the Blu-Ray edition. Eyman's insight into film making is much better than is Mr. McBride's, who is also a biographer of Ford (as is Eyman). McBride uses his time in the commentary track discussing the truthfulness or validity of Ford's conception of the West, and discussing Ford's life; whereas Eyman discusses the art of the film itself - discussing the power of actors in scenes, the art of the direction, cinematography, etc. Eyman discusses the life of Ford and the actor's some, but not too much. McBride is the reverse. In fact, at one point when discussing the actual film, McBride apologizes for "digressing." I find Mr. McBride's approach not nearly as interesting as Eyman's. Now - here is my original review

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.
