One of the most spellbinding westerns ever, My Darling Clementine is John Ford's retelling of the Earp or Clanton Feud, here the lawman of a rowdy frontier town where his brother's killers have taken refuge, Wyatt Earp (Henry Fonda)dedicates himself to bringing the evildoers to justice, a quest that leads to the famous shootout at the ok corral.

If you're looking for a western that goes beyond the traditional storytelling devices, I highly recommend this, as well as Red River, Heaven's Gate (Cimino's cut), Ford's Stagecoach, Eastwood's Unforgiven and the spaghetti masterpieces The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and Once Upon a Time in the West. In fact, My Darling Clementine alongside Once Upon a Time... is a staggering double feature for a great evening of pizza with cinema-philes. And if that seems too pretentious, just enjoy the movies solo with a bottle of your choice. Truly great stuff to behold.
It’s definitely a region-free disc, and the clarity of the picture is such that I thought I was seeing this film for the first time (instead of the 27th.) Who’d have thought Fonda’s Sunday go-to-meetin’ suit had a pattern? Why does Cathy Downs have so much powder on her face? Holy crap! Victor Mature actually employs subtle facial gestures that have been entirely lost up until now! And Ford’s use of shadow and texture may be the most artful and dramatic of all black-and-white movies, including the Film Noir classics usually lauded for such. This print must have been meticulously remastered; it’s clean as a whistle.
The DTS mono soundtrack is an improvement, as well. No pops or hisses. Silence is truly silent, and the dialog is, for once, crisp. Gunshots had me sitting up on my couch in surprise--and I knew full well when they were coming. Sure, it’s nothing like today’s babbling blockbusters, but who’d want it to be?
I’m a big fan of this film. I saw it 40 yrs. ago for the first time and have watched it repeatedly since then. But I’ve never seen it like this. Buying this was the best $30 I've spent in decades.
Fonda is the ostensible star, but, as the part is written, he isn’t a sustaining force — sharing the spotlight as he does with a torpid Victor Mature (badly miscast as Doc Holliday) — and the film thus suffers for the lack of a strong center, a tendency to jump through unnecessary hoops and (among other issues) trite parts for the two women who were squeezed into the story. A lot of time was thus wasted -- my own included. :(
Vintage John Ford. Familiar to admirers of his work are the men's chorus, the exquisite compositions, the texture of the locations, and the wonderful use of character actors.
This recounting of the Wyatt Earp/Tombstone conflict in the 1880's indulges in human scale myth. Character driven with a subdued romance, and Henry Fonda at his most graceful and charming as a man comfortable with action but not so much in social interactions.
Walter Brennan excels as the mean head of the Clanton family. He so often played the eccentric old coot,. it is easy to forget he could be effective when cast properly in less characteristic roles.
A typical beautiful CC Blu-ray production.
