Tombstone

A hollywood historical account of Tombstone, Arizona’s famed “Shootout at the O.K. Corral” and the events that led up to it


. Tension between “the Law” and “the Cowboys” stirs as the Cowboys, led by “Curly Bill” Broscius, accuse the Earps (Wyatt, Virgil, and Morgan) and their outlaw/gambler associate “Doc” Holliday of interefering with their operations inside and outside of town. While fairly accurate in depicting the Earps and Cowboys lifestyles and the Earp/Holliday side of the story, the film leaves out one major point of fact. Historically, the Earps/holliday are accused by the Cowboys (aka the Clanton/MacLaurey gang) of being generally corrupt and specifically responsible for a Wells Fargo robbery which left a man dead and the coach cleaned out. The Earps/Holliday in turn accuse the Clanton/MacLaurey’s of the same. Tempers rise over this situation as well as over a court decision finding the Earps not guilty.
