YMMV / My Darling Clementine

Go To

  • Adaptation Displacement: It's a very close remake of the 1939 film Frontier Marshal, starring Randolph Scott and Cesar Romero, with some scenes mirrored almost shot-for-shot. Which itself was a remake of a 1934 film starring George O'Brien. All three films are based on Stuart N. Lake's popular, but historically dubious, biography Wyatt Earp: Frontier Marshal.
  • Award Snub: The film was completely ignored at the Oscars.

  • Hilarious in Hindsight: A sexy, glamourous character named . . . Chihuahua. (For the record: The dog breed was known in America at the time the film was made, but only really took off in popularity in the 1960s.)
  • Jerkass Woobie: Chihuahua. A Clingy Jealous Girl towards Clementine, whom she sees as a threat to her relationship with Doc, but she doesn't deserve the mistreatment she recieves from everyone in Tombstone. She's abused constantly for being half Apache.
