for ford fans:
for ages i've been looking for the other version of clementine. ford had to reshoot a shorter ending. now it seems a longer version will be showing. below is the schedule from www.tv-now.com
it says, 'premiere,' and lists it at 130 minutes. has any one seen the longer version? many years ago i remember seeing a version that showed the clantons before the gunfight, before dawn, drinking and acting like mongoloids at the coral. the version i now have just shows walter breanan looking up as the sun rises. can any one shed some light on this?
also, it has been written that ford and earp in the silent days drank, and hung out together, were party monsters. not true. by ford's account, he was just a kid. earp was on the set. ford would pull up a crate for earp to put his feet on, and earp would spin tales.
