My Darling Clementine
Dir. John Ford (1943)

Henry Fonda had already played Abraham Lincoln and The Grapes of Wrath's Tom Joad for director John Ford by the mid-'40s, so casting him as iconic Wyatt Earp, one of the West's biggest legends, was a natural. The result is widely considered the best of Hollywood's many retellings of the Gunfight at the O.K. Corrall. My Darling Clementine screens at 7:30 pm, Tuesday, July 5, at the Bijou at Crossroads Theatre. Tickets are $10 TPR members / $12 nonmembers, available at or 1-800-622-8777 during business hours.
