9. My Darling Clementine was a truly great John Ford-directed western

and Walter Brennan was a great actor -
the only person ever to win three Oscars for Best Actor in a Supporting Role:
- "Come and get it" (1936)
- "Kentucky" (1938)
- "The Westerner" (1940)

He also was in one of my favorite westerns, Howard Hawks' "Rio Bravo" (1959)
with John Wayne, Dean Martin, Ricky Nelson & Angie Dickinson

I love the scene in "Clementine" where Henry Fonda, after having all his cattle stolen, meets up again with Walter Brennan, (who stole his cattle), at the Tombstone Hotel.
FONDA: "I'm the fella with the trail herd, remember?
BRENNAN: (as Ike Clanton): "Oh sure, I remember you."
FONDA: "You was right..I didn't get very far with 'em..They was rustled this evening."
BRENNAN: "That so? Well, that's too bad."
(Henry Fonda starts walking out the door)
BRENNAN: "I guess you'll be headin' for California, huh?"
FONDA: "No, I figured on stickin' around awhile..Got myself a job."
BRENNAN: "Cowpunching?"
FONDA: "Marshallin''"
BRENNAN: "Marshallin'? In Tombstone?" (laughs).."Well..good luck to ya Mister...?"
FONDA: "Earp..Wyatt Earp."

I have not seen all of these, but I thought Val Kilmer's Doc Holiday was excellent... Thomas Hurt Sep 2017 #1

"Tombstone" is my pick, but "Clementine" is also AMAZING. Miles Archer Sep 2017 #7
