This is exactly what it purports to be - a made for TV movie. But to suggest that by watching "My Darling Clementine" one will get "a much better version of what happened at the infamous OK corral" is ludicrous. Only by examining the actual transcripts of the trial and sifting through the evidence, does a true picture of what happened on October 26, 1881 emerge. The aforementioned movie with Henry Fonda in the title role (with a truncated mustache) is so full of inaccuracies, it beggars belief (Doc Holliday is killed mid-cough!). For the real story, read the actual transcripts of the evidence in Alford E. Turner's "The O.K. Corral Inquest" (1981) and in the best documented biography of Wyatt Earp, "Wyatt Earp: The Life Behind the Legend" by Casey Tefertiller. As for "Tombstone", one of my favorite movies despite the liberties with the facts =( see the article re inaccuracies at: fern canyon press . com/ tombstone (take out the "e" in tombstone) / movie.s h t m l (take out the spaces).
