Storyline : Gunfight At The O.K. Corall
Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, After a long career as a lawman that made him a legend, Wyatt Earp (Burt Lancaster) decides to quit and join his brothers in Tombstone, Arizona. There, he would see them in a feud with the Clantons, a local clan of thugs and cattle thieves. When the showdown becomes inevitable, the help will come from Doc Holliday (Kirk Douglas), a terminally-ill gambler who happens to be another Wild West legend.

Good old fashion western

 

Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, In the dusty town of Fort Griffin, Texas, Doc Holliday (Kirk Douglas) is hounded by Ed Bailey and his two friends looking for revenge. Kate Fisher (Jo Van Fleet) begs him to run away. Marshal Wyatt Earp (Burt Lancaster) arrives looking to take two prisoners but the local sheriff had already released them. Doc was previously Wyatt’s dentist and not that friendly. Doc is arrested for killing Ed with a knife throw. Wyatt and Kate help Doc escape from an approaching lynch mob. Back in Dodge City, Kansas, Wyatt leads his brothers as the town’s law. He tries to send newly arrived Doc away. Wyatt arrests Laura Denbow (Rhonda Fleming) for being a female gambler.

This old fashion western directed by legendary John Sturges is led by two top level Hollywood stars. They are able to drive the story through its long winding road. Along with the old stars, there are younger actors like Dennis Hopper and DeForest Kelley. It’s not necessarily breaking the mold. The action is mostly straight forward. The running time is a little long but it does end with a solid gun fight at the O.K. Corral.


Kirk Douglas is great as Doc Holliday

 
Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, I thought this was a good movie.the actual gunfight referred to in the movie is a very small part and happens close to the end.most of the movie is a buildup to that point.we get to know the characters and their motivations.The character of Wyatt Earp is portrayed by Burt Lancaster,and it took me awhile to warm up to his characterization,but eventually he won me over.Kirk Douglas plays Doc Holliday and he is brilliant.his charisma just jumps off the screen.Deforest Kelley plays one of the Earp brothers and a very young Dennis Hopper plays one of the Clanton gang.i liked the fact that the story was developed.it moves at a good pace,and I never found it boring.
