My Darling Clementine Blog
One key aspect to a western film is having a typical western hero. In the movie My Darling Clementine, The main character Wyatt Earp is a good example of a typical western hero. He has a reputation for whipping towns into shape. That is apparent in the beginning when a guy recognizes him as the previous marshal of another previously rowdy town. Wyatt also has high morals. He becomes town marshal in order to restore peace in Tombstone. He fights off the Clantons, but even then he tries to bring them to justice in a calm nonviolent manner. Probably the best indicator of how Wyatt is a typical western hero is the fact that he is reluctant at first to even be a hero. The only reason he takes the marshal job in the first place is because of the death of his youngest brother, and the stealing of his cattle. The film My Darling Clementine is a good example of a western movie. The movie however would not be quite as a good example had it not been for the western hero Wyatt Earp.
