sturges film that picks up where gunfight at the ok corral ends. jason robards (who was seemingly the same age for the last 40 years of his career) plays doc holliday and that’s the acting highlight of the film. there are other notable stars, but they don’t do anything of particular note here. the film itself isn’t all that special. it’s a good enough drama film with the typical western elements. it felt like the searchers and the wild bunch, both of which are better. a posse (this one happens to be lawful) looking for the bad guys, bonding all the while. the earps are an interesting subject largely because of doc holliday. holliday was basically an outlaw who was riding with the earps. so it’s an interesting juxtaposition of the shining example of the law in the west (earps) alongside doc holliday who was a gambler and wanted murderer. but, hey, that’s the wild west.
