My Darling Clementine: John Ford may have strayed from actual fact in his account of the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, but he still created one fine, lovely Western. That story is just one facet of this tale of the arrival of civilization, romance and friendship. The pace is relaxed, broken by short bursts of violence that quickly revert back to non-violent normality. Henry Fonda is fine as the stoic man who feels at home when action is called for, but an awkward stranger in his body in calmer times; Victor Mature is solid; the always dependable Walter Brennan is memorable as the hard, cold, menacing villain; the weakest link is Linda Darnell, who looks pretty but overacts. Cinematographer Joe MacDonald captures gloriously the enormity of Monument Valley, and lights the internal scenes beautifully.
