Trivia Although the plot is mostly fiction, Wyatt Earp and Tom Mix were real-life friends. After Earp retired from law-enforcement, he and his wife drifted around, eventually setting in Los Angeles, where he and Mix met. Mix tried to get Hollywood to produce a movie about Earp, but they weren't interested. Earp was hired as a technical consultant for movies starring Mix and William S. Hart. When Earp died in 1929, Mix and Hart were his pallbearers. See more »
