In this article, the writer analyzes the classic film "My Darling Clementine". The writer discusses the way in whcih the elements of style are used in the film to elucidate its central themes. The writer looks at the themes of the settlers' civilization of the West, the character of the lone cowboy or fugitive who doesn't fit into the developing social community, and the violent clash between the Clantons and the Earps that exemplify these disparities.

From the Paper:

"In the first scene each of the Earp brothers on the cattle drive is introduced by a low-angle medium shot profiled on horseback against the sky. Somehow the short take, the brief isolation of each one, exposes a premonition of mortality, which is heightened by the ominous arrival of Old Man Clanton and his son Ike hunched over on their buckboard, in a medium shot seen from the back. They, their rig, and their horses are dark figures in the gathering dusk of the hills as Wyatt Earp rides up from the daylight plain to speak to them in low-angled closeup."
