Compare
and
contrast
a
scene
from
My
Darling
Clementine
(John
Ford
1946)
and
a
 scene
from
Unforgiven
(Clint
Eastwood
1992).

OR,
compare
and
contrast
three
 screenshots
from
My
Darling
Clementine
and
three
screenshots
from
Unforgiven.

 Explore
repeating
semantic
elements
and
syntactic
structures
of
the
Western
across
 the
two
films,
and/or
contrasting
uses
of
semantic
elements
and
the
resulting
effects
 on
the
classical
syntactic
structure
of
the
Western,
as
evidenced
by
your
examples.

 Using
your
examples,
argue
how
your
analysis
illustrates
whether
or
not
Unforgiven
 works
as
a
revisionist
Western.
The
assignment
should
break
down
into
three
parts:
1. The
Examples:
The
scenes
or
screenshots
that
you
chose
and
why.

Are
they
 typical
of
the
Western,
or
are
they
unusual
for
the
genre?
How
so?

Why
do
 you
believe
they
are
ideal
for
your
analysis?
2. The
Analysis:
Your
comparison
of
the
two
scenes
or
six
screenshots
chosen,
 and
your
analysis
of
the
similarities
and/or
differences
that
you
find.

 Analyze
the
iconography
of
the
scenes
or
screenshots.

What
Western
 typologies
and
themes
do
they
articulate?

What
Western
typologies
and
 themes
do
they
complicate?

Are
Western
mythologies
affirmed
through
 these
uses
of
convention,
or
are
they
questioned
or
undermined?
Explain.

 Based
on
these
examples,
how
are
the
films
alike,
how
are
they
different?
3. The
Conclusion:
Your
assessment
of
Unforgiven’s
revisionism,
and
how
your
 examples
and
analysis
demonstrate
your
conclusions.

If
it
is
a
revisionist
 Western,
what
kind
of
revisionism
is
it
practicing?

Is
the
genre
significantly
 transformed?
How
so?
Is
the
genre
fundamentally
unchanged?
How
so?

Do
 you
think
the
difference
between
classical
Western
and
revisionist
Western
 is
clear
in
these
two
films?
Why
or
why
not?
