My Darling Clementine

Henry Fonda plays Wyatt Earp in John Ford's celebrated telling of the gunfight at the OK Corral. Mature is a solid Doc Holliday, the cultured Bostonian turned gunfighter. Ford includes long, nostalgic passages that with loving detail evoke daily life in the West, as much the theme of the film as Fonda's quest for his brother's killers and the inevitable showdown at the conclusion. One of Ford's best.

Ford actually met the real Earp when the retired lawman was living in Hollywood and Ford was working in silent movies.
