My Darling Clementine (3-Dec-1946)

Director: John Ford

Writers: Samuel G. Engel; Sam Hellman; Winston Miller

Based on a book: Wyatt Earp, Frontier Marshal by Stuart N. Lake

Keywords: Western

The Earp brothers are driving cattle through Tombstone when their youngest, James, is murdered and their cattle stolen. Wyatt and his brother clean up the lawless town, defeating the Clantons in this the finest telling of the gunfight at the O.K. Corral. Roger Ebert calls this Ford's best effort; it is certainly in the top rank of westerns. But it is a highly romanticized version in which numerous key details are invented -- James actually lived to 1926. Entered 1991 into the National Film Registry.
