FORD VS. …
Ford vs. Leone Double Feature!
ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST / MY DARLING CLEMENTINE
ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST
(C’ERA UNA VOLTA IL WEST)
1968, Paramount, 165 min, Dir: Sergio Leone

Charles Bronson is a soft-spoken, harmonica-playing gunslinger bent on revenge against brutal assassin Henry Fonda. Costarring Claudia Cardinale as an independent-minded mail-order bride and Jason Robards as a wry bandito with an agenda of his own.


MY DARLING CLEMENTINE
1946, 20th Century Fox, 97 min, USA, Dir: John Ford

John Ford directs one of the most beautiful, melancholic, lyrical Westerns ever made, painting an atmospheric interpretation of Wyatt Earp (Henry Fonda), the Earp siblings (Ward Bond, Tim Holt), Doc Holliday (Victor Mature) and their escalating feud with the cattle-rustling Clanton family (Walter Brennan, John Ireland and Grant Withers). Although Ford hews closer to the legend than to the cold hard facts (especially with the fictionalized female characters, Cathy Downs as Clementine and Linda Darnell as Chihuahua), that is, in large part, the point of the film - an elegiac vision of a heroic age when almost-mythological personalities walked the earth as real, flesh-and-blood people. Poignant, exhilarating and gorgeous from beginning to end.
