Movie Details

This video is one of a series on the colorful characters who have become part of the romantic myth of the American West. This episode is on Wyatt Earp, who was sometimes a gambler, a saloonkeeper, and a lawman. Born in Illinois on March 19, 1848, Earp came west in the 1880s, settling with his brothers Virgil and Morgan and friend "Doc" Holliday in Tombstone, AZ. Earp reached the peak of his notoriety in the famous 30-second shootout at the O.K. Corral. When the smoke cleared, three men were dead, and only Wyatt Earp was still standing. Host Harry Carey Jr. narrates the story, with film clips, reenactments, archival photographs, and commentary. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi
