The movie, Gunfight At The O.K. Corral, is the straightforward account of the events leading up to the famous Tombstone gunfight and focuses on lawman Wyatt Earp and the ailing Doc Holiday as they battle the Clanton gang. Of all the film versions of the famed 1881 gunfight in Tombstone, Arizona, this one probably has the highest testosterone level. Focusing on the friendship between the responsible sheriff and the risk taking, consumptive gambler, it suggests that their mutual friendship was based on this opposition of personal attributes. When Wyatt's brothers, Tombstone lawmen, ask for help in evening the odds against Ike Clanton, his brothers, the McLowerys and Johnny Ringo, Doc decides to join his friend. After Wyatt arrives at Tombstone, he quickly curtails Ike's cattle-rustling activities which leads the outlaw to set him up for assasination. A tragic mix-up leads to Wyatt's younger brother Jimmy being killed instead of him. When the news arrives of Jimmy's death, Wyatt vows revenge and the scene is set for the historic final gun battle which according to historic accounts only lasted 30 seconds. This solid Western is hoisted by the fine screenplay by novelist Leon Uris and the chrisma of the two leading characters, as well as, a strong supporting cast. Starring Burt Lancaster, Dennis Hooper and Kirk Douglas among others. Widescreen in color. Released in 1957. Runtime 122 minutes.
