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 »

A Lesser-Known 'Earp' Movie
15 June 2006 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Here is yet another Wyatt Earp story. I wasn't aware of this version until early in the summer of 2005. I thought I had seen them all. Judging by the amount of reviews in here, I wasn't alone in not knowing about this film. I am glad I got it, but It was just okay; nothing special.

None of the three top characters: James Garner as Earp, Jason Robards as "Doc Holliday" or Robert Ryan as "Ike Clanton" can match up to their best of their counterparts in other Earp films.....but they were still pretty good and certainly three famous actors. The only one who might have been a little out of place was Robards, who played a little too subdued "Doc."

Still, the similarities are there in all the Earp movie versions including this one: the gunfight at the OK Corral, the courtroom trials, the train scene near the end, Holliday's illness, etc. One thing missing from this is any love interest, which actually was nice to have left out for once.
