Capital Celluloid 2014 - Day 283: Sat Oct 11

My Darling Clementine (Ford, 1946): BFI Southbank, NFT1, 3.30pm

58th LONDON FILM FESTIVAL (8-19 October 2014) DAY 4
Every day (from October 8 to October 19) I will be selecting the London Film Festival choices you have a chance to get tickets for and the movies you are unlikely to see in London very soon unless you go to see them at the Festival. Here is the LFF's main website for the general information you need. Don't worry if some of the recommended films are sold out by the time you read this as there are always some tickets on offer which go on sale 30 minutes before each screening. Here is all the information you need about the best way to get tickets.

This film also screens on Oct 10 at Vue West End Screen 7. Full details here.

Chicago Reader review:
John Ford's 1946 reworking of the Doc Holliday-Wyatt Earp legend stars Henry Fonda as the elegant Earp and Victor Mature as a surprisingly moving Doc Holliday. The Earp-Clanton feud, climaxing with the epic gunfight at the O.K. Corral, becomes for Ford a perfect case study in the virtues of family unity, civilization, and loyalty—and the film that emerges is one of Ford's most sublime and atmospheric. Highly recommended.
