When the OK corral fight commenced, one of the Earp brothers fires a shotgun at the wagon the Clanton gang is in. Ike yells "shotgun" and they duck. The pellets from the shotgun blast are clearly scene hitting the canvas on the wagon forming a large circle with the many different pellet holes. Two scenes later when they return to the same canvas all the pellet holes are gone. See more »
Burt Lancaster plays real-life western lawman Wyatt Earp, who travels to Tombstone, Arizona to join his brothers in their business, only to be called upon to serve after learning about a rival family, the Clantons, who are portrayed as thugs and cattle thieves. He enlists the help of old friend(but outlaw gunfighter) Doc Holliday(Kirk Douglas) to do battle with the Clantons after personal tragedy leads to that famous gunfight.
Surprisingly dull western has a good cast but a slow pace, with an awkward and mawkish love story that drags it down even more. Climatic showdown is reasonably exciting, but not enough to save otherwise disappointing film.
