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...clichéd...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.

John Ford's cinematic painting of a western town

Tombstone is a tangle of cattleman, cowboys, Indians and women of distinction. Henry Fonda, as Wyatt Earp, calms the town, as sheriff, from a chair he leans back in. His brothers, Ward Bond, as Morgan, and Tim Holt, as Virgil, protect him loyally. Morgan sums up the town with, "There's probably a lot of nice people around here – we just ain't met 'em." Victor Mature, as Doc Holiday, befriends the sheriff, if only to carry out his justice upon the town. Chihuahua, played by the fiery Linda Darnell, adds a touch of trouble. The Clantons add a ton of trouble. Pa Clanton, Walter Brennan, in an uncharacteristic role as a rotten father, leads his sons in the bad western behavior of rustling cattle and murdering. John Ireland, a Ford favorite plays a smallish part as Billy Clanton. Cathy Downs, as the flower-like Clementine Carter, arrives in town just in time to rescue, and be rescued by, Wyatt, as a thread of human decency emerges. Even the bartender, Mac, played by the durable J. Farrell McDonald, has his moments as the town's emblematic father figure – like when Wyatt asks him simply, "Mac, have you ever been in love?" – his answer is a classic line, not to be forgotten. Alan Mowbray, the itinerant English actor and sot, has a heartfelt Shakespearean moment with Doc Holiday. The film is a series of showdowns between the all the main characters. The inevitable finale plays out with Ward Bond having perhaps his greatest cinematic moment – ever so brief and to the point. The film is not historically accurate, but it's a beautifully filmed and acted portrayal of a western town. Much of the beauty and realism is in the details. The sartorial Earps. The tenderness of graveside and bedside moments. The rowdy shouts of barroom patrons during a backroom operation. Barking dogs at dawn on showdown day. Ford, who was a painter before becoming a film director, frames every shot to move the story along pictorially. His close ups are vivid and memorable. His final painted scene gives hope to the new West.
