Storyline

Wyatt Earp and his brothers Morgan and Virgil ride into Tombstone and leave brother James in charge of their cattle herd. On their return they find their cattle stolen and James dead. Wyatt takes on the job of town marshal, making his brothers deputies, and vows to stay in Tombstone until James' killers are found. He soon runs into the brooding, coughing, hard-drinking Doc Holliday as well as the sullen and vicious Clanton clan. Wyatt discovers the owner of a trinket stolen from James' dead body and the stage is set for the Earps' long-awaited revenge. Written by Doug Sederberg <vornoff@sonic.net>

Casts such a spell.
30 April 2006 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

I find this film entrancing. Smoke rising. The desert at night. Clouds at midnight. This new (to us) version is quieter, less score. I would love to be out there on that porch, tilting my chair back, waiting for the stage to come in. Beautiful transfer on the DVD, I found myself struck, moved by frame after frame. The sound of a single horse across monument valley, the fury of Doc Holiday's stage coach tearing through the landscape. A lamp-lit bar and a woman moaning under the knife, like a dying ember. Three figures stepping out like giants into the landscape. Robert Ryan seated in the wind and dust at the end of the Wild Bunch, it all comes from here. There is so much to learn from this film.
