My Darling Clementine

My Darling Clementine tells the story of Wyatt Earp against the Clantons and probably takes the most liberties with the story. In this version he and Doc Holliday are not really friends, and the whole set, involving Old man Clanton, is considerably different than other versions. It is a good version though as a fairly straight forward, Sheriff cleaning up that town variation, but with enough of an addition involving Holliday to make something a bit special out it. Holliday in himself is a bit of a surprise altogether as Victor Mature gives a rather lively performance for once. Other than that aspect the story proceeds as you'd expect though in an effective fashion particularly in a rather well directed final shootout by John Ford.
