DeForest Kelley as Ike Clanton 1955

Oh boy this is a find. A 35 year old DeForest Kelley as 'Ike Clanton' in "You are there: Gunfight at the OK Corral." De's having a great time in this one, being a bad ass--With a tough swagger, handlebar moustache, mouth full of tobacco, and sinister voice. I wouldn't want to cross this guy! According to the DeForest Kelley Filmography this was his first 'real mean heavy' role. I wonder if he'd have been even more sinister had the ep been in color. The b/w's just didn't do justice to those ice-blue eyes. A big thank you to Meggy1977 for posting this clip on YouTube.
