Love nest at the OK Corral
20 August 2005 | by zeppo-2See all my reviews

Since the whole gunfight at the OK corral has been done before, this attempts a look at the Wyatt Earp back story. Concentrating on his love affair and eventual marriage to singer, Josie Marcus.

Unfortunately, this is just not as interesting as the gunfight and plays very much like Hallmark card western. Or perhaps like an episode of old TV series like 'Bonanza' or 'The High Chaperal,' where the talk always dominated any action.

But the main fault is that the leading character, the future Mrs. Earp is downright dull. Marie Osmond might have a pleasant singing voice, and since there are two musical interludes, I assume this is one of the reasons she got the part, she is just not a good actress.

In fact her role of Josie is so wet and feeble, it beggars belief she would be the reason two men are so crazed about her and fall hopelessly in love with her. She comes across as more a young Dorothy from the 'Wizard of Oz' rather than the strong independent woman the script is trying to make her out to be.

And since the film revolves mostly around her relationship with Wyatt Earp, it also makes her the weak link. The other Earp brothers hardly get a line between them and only Doc Holiday has a little bit more to do.

The film tries for a sweeping grandiose epic feel of a momentous event in western lore but just ends up been slow. The denouement with the villains takes an age to arrive.

With true classic films like 'My Darling Clementine' & 'Gunfight at the OK Corral,' and even the more recent 'Tombstone' to compare this to, it comes off very poorly. And you'd be advised to watch any or all of the others mentioned for a much better version of what happened at the infamous OK corral.
