Wyatt Earp and his brothers Morgan and Virgil ride into Tombstone and leave brother James in charge of their cattle herd. On their return they find their cattle stolen and James dead. Wyatt takes on the job of town marshal, making his brothers deputies, and vows to stay in Tombstone until James' killers are found. He soon runs into the brooding, coughing, hard-drinking Doc Holliday as well as the sullen and vicious Clanton clan. Wyatt discovers the owner of a trinket stolen from James' dead body and the stage is set for the Earps' long-awaited revenge. Written by Doug Sederberg <vornoff@sonic.net>

Trivia

"Sooner or later he wanted to dominate you," Winston Miller later noted of working with John Ford. One day during the scripting phase, Ford asked him if he thought it would hurt him in the business if the film didn't turn out well. "No, I've got other credits I can fall back on," Miller replied, failing to recognize that Ford was actually fishing for a compliment. "Ford kind of dummied up for a while . . . He kind of froze; he wanted me to say, 'Oh, no!'" See more »

Goofs

Monument Valley is used as background in many of the scenes, and the town of Tombstone is depicted as located near Monument Valley and within view of the mesas and buttes there. In reality, the town of Tombstone, Arizona is located approximately 340 miles south of Monument Valley, far too distant for any of Monument Valley's mesas and buttes to be visible. See more »

Ignorant or artistic?
20 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

It is worth to see the film because of the many outstanding actors who might have contributed to the high ranking. But the film, although entertaining, is in parts rather boring. It is hardly to be understood why they ignored the historic facts so much that it is not bearable for anybody who likes to have treated truth with more respect. It would have been better to change names to create just a simple story about the wild west. It is in my opinion of no use at all to show history in falsifying history. I am a strong opponent to this. If history is too boring You need not make a film about it, choose something else or relate a tale. That is much better. Compared with other westerns of the time, this one is not very convincing. To locate Tombstone in the Monument Valley is not excusable. Ford did not care a penny for the ridicule he must have received from all the Arizona audience. But You have to respect the claims of people who live in the area where historic incidents happened. They claim more accuracy and they have the right to do this. Hollywood is of course not bound to facts or history, but it is much more appreciated if they do not only make fantasy films when the reality is much more interesting. The art is not in displaying fantasy but in making sense, something beautiful for the eyes and something bothering for the mind.
