My Darling Clementine  (1946)

Director John Ford's saga of the feud and final showdown between the Earp Brothers and the Clanton clan is one of his most timeless works.  This special version of the film was restored from a 1946 nitrate print thought to be truer to Ford's original vision than the release version with changes ordered by studio head Darryl Zanuck, featuring important differences in performances, music scoring and dialogue.

35mm, b/w, 102 min.  Production: Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corp.  Distribution: Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corp.  Producer: Samuel G. Engel.  Director: John Ford.  Based on the book Wyatt Earp, Frontier Marshal by Stuart N. Lake.  Screenwriter: Samuel G. Engel, Winston Miller.  Cinematographer: Joe MacDonald.  Editor: Dorothy Spencer.  Composer: Cyril Mockridge.  With: Henry Fonda, Linda Darnell, Victor Mature, Cathy Downs, Walter Brennan.

She Wore a Yellow Ribbon  (1949)

John Wayne plays Capt. Nathan Brittles, a cavalry officer who must escort a major's wife and daughter out of range of the restive Indian Wars.  Cinematographer Winton Hoch won an Academy Award for his extraordinary color photography, through which director John Ford sought to simulate the palette of Western artist Fredric Remington.  UCLA Film & Television Archive's restoration was performed using the original Technicolor three-strip negatives.
