Review

Our Score
In this classic western, Henry Fonda's Wyatt Earp and Victor Mature's Doc Holliday are heading for that close shave at the OK Corral. Owing rather less to historical accuracy than more recent movies - Tombstone and Kevin Costner's Wyatt Earp - this John Ford picture boasts some fine sequences. The best is a dance in an unfinished church, a fine symbol of the "garden being fashioned from the wilderness" by the strong-arm methods of Fonda's self-righteous lawman. Filmed in expressive black and white against Monument Valley locations, the picture combines both the grandeur and the folksiness so typical of its director.

Summary

Retired lawman Wyatt Earp accepts the post of Tombstone city marshal when one of his brothers is killed by cattle rustlers, and embarks on a crusade to bring his murderers to justice and drive lawlessness from the streets. Western, directed by John Ford, starring Henry Fonda, Victor Mature, Linda Darnell and Walter Brennan.
