The Clanton’s and the Earp’s have the final showdown at the O.K. corral. Based on real life events, the film covers the lives of Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday leading up to the fateful gunfight. In fact the gunfight is really only a small part of the whole movie. It’s a film more about the relationship between the two main characters, the meaning of loyalty and friendship, and the lengths to which one will go to uphold one’s honor. John Sturgess directed and Burt Lancaster, Kirk Douglas, Rhonda Fleming, Jo Van Fleet and a very young Dennis Hopper starred in this 1957 retelling of the tale. And to top it off, the music was composed by the incomparable Dimitri Tiomkin.

Strap on your six shooter and saddle your horse, you’re in for an epic journey to the Gunfight At The O.K. Corral.
