Ignorant or artistic?

It is worth to see the film because of the many outstanding actors who might have contributed to the high ranking. But the film, although entertaining, is in parts rather boring. It is hardly to be understood why they ignored the historic facts so much that it is not bearable for anybody who likes to have treated truth with more respect. It would have been better to change names to create just a simple story about the wild west. It is in my opinion of no use at all to show history in falsifying history. I am a strong opponent to this. If history is too boring You need not make a film about it, choose something else or relate a tale. That is much better. Compared with other westerns of the time, this one is not very convincing. To locate Tombstone in the Monument Valley is not excusable. Ford did not care a penny for the ridicule he must have received from all the Arizona audience. But You have to respect the claims of people who live in the area where historic incidents happened. They claim more accuracy and they have the right to do this. Hollywood is of course not bound to facts or history, but it is much more appreciated if they do not only make fantasy films when the reality is much more interesting. The art is not in displaying fantasy but in making sense, something beautiful for the eyes and something bothering for the mind.

A mighty good version of the famous gunfight with more romantic sub plots.

Recently i have been on a spree of revisiting old Westerns, specially the ones dealing with the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral. There are many versions based on it but nothing better than revisiting John Fords masterpiece n since Ford was friends with the real Wyatt Earp, maybe his version is more truer n it is undoubtedly the best version according to me. I saw this film for the first time in the early 90s on a vhs. Revisited it few days back on a blu-ray. In this version, we see the Earp brothers driving their cattle to the outskirts of Tombstone. The cattle has come under the eyes of the notorious old man Clanton (Brennan) and his sons. Senior Clanton offers Wyatt Earp (Fonda) a price for the cattle but his offer is rejected by Earp. Unwillingly Wyatt Earp takes up the job of a Marshall after his youngest brother is murdered n their cattle stolen. We also have a character of Doc Holliday played by the underrated Victor Mature but i have always liked Val Kilmers portrayal of Doc much better. This is truly an outstanding film from John Ford that features an incredible performance from Henry Fonda. The black and white cinematography is stunning. The opening sequence which has the credits etched on a signpost n the Monument Valley shows how great black and white photography can be. The film has great shots, from wide to close-ups where darkness is properly used. The images has struck with me for years, Fonda sitting in a chair on the boardwalk, tipped back on the rear legs with his leg propped against a post as he watches the town and a badly shot Mature calmly looking through the poles of a corral, his hand holding a white handkerchief near his head.

Simple characters create a complex masterpiece.

We live in a time where the artistic, marketing, and financial forces behind Hollywood are all dominated by children of the suburbs. These products of safe and homogenized communities have all the angst of a chick-let.

Nothing in this movie is redundant...clich├ęd...or driven by on screen or directorial ego. It took Me many many years to finally appreciate the genius of sparsity conveyed by Ford and Fonda. Less is truly more.

Today, Michael Bay would turn it into a special effects epic where the best line would be "Never mess with an Earp"....likely uttered by Marky Mark.

It took Me many years to appreciate this film. I am thankful that I lived long enough to do so.
