Goofs:
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Doc claims to have killed men as a soldier between 1861 and 1865, but John Holliday was only 14 at the end of that time period, making him too young to be in the army. This inaccurate statement may be deliberate within the film, as Holliday often told lies to bolster his image (e.g. that he learned dentistry at Johns Hopkins University) because he wanted to conceal a shameful past.See more »

"OK" thereafter and for some the "hereafter"., 27 February 2004

10 years after "Gunfight at the OK Corral" John Sturges decided to direct this sequel. He did not lost his touch. If anyone was capable of teaching an actor how to draw and shoot a gun and capture that precision on screen it was Sturges. He knew how to dress them too. It may not have been realistic but it worked. James Garner is good as Earp. Stoic but not unfeeling. Good casting with Jason Robards as Doc Holliday. Even better that he was not scripted to cough himself to death in every scene. Whatever happened to "big nose" Kate? In fact, what happened to the women? Not one cast or credited. Robert Ryan plays Ike Clanton as a greedy land baron trying not to have modern times catch up to him. He dies well. With good photography and music I can strongly recommend this film especially if you want a different perspective of Earp and the times.
