Val Kilmer plays Doc Holliday, a role previously played decades earlier by Adam West. It was upon seeing this film that Joel Schumacher was inspired to cast Kilmer as Batman - which was West's most famous role. See more »
A few scenes prior to the OK Corral shootout, members of the Cowboys gang are seen riding towards town as the sun is low in the sky. In the next scene, as they slowly ride past the Earps who are in front of the sheriff's office, from the Cowboys' perspective the sun's light shines on the Earps from the horizon. When the camera switches to the Earps' perspective, however, the sun's light is shining directly down on the Cowboys from overhead. The camera switches back to the Cowboys' perspective and then the Earps' one more time, and in each case the sun is in different positions in the sky. See more »

Exciting story of a heroic man in the midst of many foes.
I loved this movie so much I bought it right after seeing it the first time. The acting is incredible in this film. I'm not a huge Kurt Russell fan, but he played his role very well. Among others, I consider this one of Val Kilmer's best performances. Even if your not a Western fan (like me), you'll still at least enjoy this film. Excellent lighting, cinematography and sound design. Intense pacing and story telling. All the classic elements of good guys and bad guys. Great story development and plot buildup. You have to see it at least once.
