Storyline

Frontier Marshal  Early low budget version of the famous Gunfight at OK Corral with Scott as Wyatt Earp and Romero as Doc Holiday. Remade by John Ford as “My Darling Clementine” in 1946 and by John Sturges as “Gunfight at OK Corral” in 1957. I’M THE LAW IN TOMBSTONE!,,,when Wyatt Earp tamed the wickedest town in all the West!

The raw material for My Darling Clementine.

 
Frontier Marshal  There is no way but to compare Frontier Marshal with My Darling Clementine. Charles Stevens plays the same part of the drunken Indian in both films. The story in both films comes from Sam Hellman and Stuart N. Lake. I liked Cesar Romero as Doc Holliday more than Victor Mature. Eddie Foyt Jr playing his father adds to the film more than the Shakespeare of Clementine. As for the women, Nancy Kelly and Binnie Barnes seemed better than Cathy Downs and Linda Darnell in Clementine. Randolph Scott has one of his best performances as Wyatt Earp. John Ford and Henry Fonda had greatness in them, it is impossible for Scott and director Allan Dwan to compete with that, but they made quite a good western very enjoyable even nowadays. In his version Ford added a touch of poetry, also he was more technical in the sequence of the gunfight. Frontier Marshal is a must for all those who think they have already seen everything about Wyatt Earp and the O.K.Corral.

My Darling Clementine Was a Remake of This Movie

 

This was the movie which John Ford remade as his classic My Darling Clementine. Here, Randolph Scott plays Wyatt Earp and Caesar Romero plays Doc Holiday, but there are no Clantons or Earp brothers. Instead, John Carradine plays a bad saloon owner heading a gang that is trying to take over Tombstone.

Of course, this movie can’t directly compare to My Darling Clementine, but it’s a pretty good western in its own right. Its one of Randolph Scott’s better early roles.

Many of the classic scenes in My Darling Clementine were taken directly from this movie, and it’s very interesting to compare the two. This version of Frontier Marshal was a remake of an earlier 1933 version, and, of course, this story has been told many times since.
