    Ya it was a good movie...but did ya know that 'Virgil Earp' was the actual Marshall...at the okay corral shootout...and he went on and was a Marshall at a small town called 'San Bernardino',California even though he had lost the use of one of his arms in the shootout...he passed away in 1905...pnemonia...Wyatt passe away in a two bit apartment in Los Angeles,California at the end of the 1920's...sad so very sad!

    Interresting.

    I love all those wild west movies, even the spigetti westerns put out by Clint Eastwood.

    Last time we were in Kansas we took the kids through Dodge City.

    As I recall thats how it was represented in the movie Tombstone. Virgil was the Marshall, Wyatt just swore in right before the fight. And he was knifed and lost use of his arm in the movie.

    Never saw the other movie, Wyatt Earp starring Kevin Costner. Which one was more accurate?
