But Sturges's film is as skewed as any other Hollywood version of the O.K. Corral.
The participants in the O.K. Corral are correct for the Earp faction (although all the
real Earps had moustaches), but the actual Clanton lineup was Ike and Billy
Clanton, the two McLaurys, Tom and Frank, and Clanton associate Billy
Claibourne. In the film, Ike and Billy Clanton and the McLaury brothers are
present, but the mysterious Clanton brother 'Finn' also tags along (Phineas
Clanton wasn't present) ...

Furthering his production grip efforts through dolly and crane, Carl began
learning the skills required to work the specialized equipment by hanging around
the Chapman warehouse on off days, practicing moves with the wheeled camera
platforms until he could do it with his eyes closed. A production, crane and dolly
man throughout the late fifties, Manoogian worked on Gunfight at the OK Corral
and The Devil's Hairpin, to name just two of the 17 pictures on which he day-

It offers particularly suggestive points of comparison with My Darling Clementine,
the opportunistic entrepreneur McCabe replacing the ideologically committed
Earp, Mrs. Miller replacing Clementine as the “girl from the East,” the whorehouse
replacing the church as the center of the growing community, the melancholy
shoot-out in the snow replacing the gunfight at the OK Corral. The elaboration of
an immediately recognizable, self-assertive personal style seems no more
common in ...

Although Wyatt tried to interest film-makers in his story in the 1920s, it was not
until after his death that the possibilities of the story, be it true or legend, made
themselves apparent. Of the many versions of the story, the best-known are My
Darling Clementine (1946) and Gunfight at the OK Corral (1957). In My Darling
Clementine Earp is portrayed by Henry Fonda as an ordinary man caught up in
extraordinary times. Directed by John Ford, who had met Wyatt in Hollywood, the
film ...

Thus did the ageing Wyatt Earp hang around Hollywood, spinning tall tales of the
gunfight at the OK Corral that would find creative issue in John Ford's My Darling
Clementine (1946). Just as life turns itself into closed spectacle, the history of the
West becomes a history of self-invention. In tough circumstances, when times are
hard, individuals reinvent themselves, or are reinvented, as 'characters' of an
open frontier or of borderless spaces. The nature of the game is notoriety, where
