Goofs

About 67 minutes in, when Wyatt Earp shoots the bottle of whisky, recently purchased and wrapped in brown paper, that Doc Holliday carries, the sound is of an empty bottle shattering, not a full one. Also, such a shot would make the bottle explode with considerable force, yet there is no trace of liquid or any shards of glass to be found anywhere. See more »

I can't understand why this isn't more popular.
25 April 2000 | by (Cambridge, UK) – See all my reviews

Sturges' sequel to Gunfight at the OK Coral is in some ways a better film with a less predictable (obviously) storyline transformed into a bitter tale of vengeance. James Garner isn't his usually laid back self as an increasingly disillusioned Wyatt Earp while Jason Robards catches the acting honours as a Jimmy Cricket-style Doc Holiday. Clever, moody, well made. (8/10)
