[to Billy Clanton]
You think you're pretty tough, don't ya, son? I never knew a gunslinger yet so tough he lived to celebrate his 35th birthday. I learned one rule about gunslingers. There's always a man faster on the draw than you are, and the more you use a gun, the sooner you're gonna run into that man.

The DVD copy I saw is excellent. The Frankie Laine ballad blends very well with the scenes. Burt Lancaster gives a quite cold performance as Wyatt Earp, and the Earp family is not shown as well as it should. Same thing goes for the Clantons, with the exception of Dennis Hopper, and John Ireland as Johnny Ringo. Kirk Douglas and Jo Van Fleet as Doc and his woman are really the ones that make this film pick up speed. They involve you in their drama. The gunfight is very well staged, you don't see good action scenes like that in westerns nowadays.
