Two Wyatts from Henry Fonda The actor is one of few who portrayed Wyatt Earp more than once.

A still of Henry Fonda from the movie, Warlock.

Henry Fonda is one of the few actors to portray Wyatt Earp in two films—more or less.  The first: My Darling Clementine in 1946.  The second is 1959’s Warlock, where all the names (and plot) are changed to protect the innocent.

Fonda plays Clay Blaisedell, a hired gun/lawman brought in to shape things up in Warlock, a small mining town.  His buddy Tom Morgan (Anthony Quinn) goes everywhere with him, afflicted by a club foot, drinks heavily and loves to gamble—a la Doc Holliday. In this story, neither is a hero.
