Movie Review: "My Darling Clementine". This has Henry Fonda playing Wyatt Earp and Victor Mature as Doc Holiday. Walter Brennan plays one of the most irredeemable villains ever seen in a Western. Ward Bond is one of Wyatt's brothers. It came out in the late 1940s. Good and evil are drawn in stark relief. But when Good responds to Evil, it does so in a lawful and deliberate way and it suffers casualties that could have been avoided if due process considerations had been ignored. So I found it fascinating when I viewed it a couple of months ago. Its on VHS and recently came out on DVD with some footage restored and an alternate ending. John Ford directed it. I have the VHS and will mail it to you if interested and if you will either mail it back or mail it to the next person who would like to see it.
