Man it would've been great to see & hear how Wyatt actually spoke! Did he gesticulate while speaking? Or did he just tell it like it was in a few, carefully chosen words? We may never know?...

Been watching the date and contemplating doing some reading on Earp's life.  Any recommendations on a reasonably-objective biography?

I consider Casey Tefertiller's biography to be the standard against which all others are judged. There has been some more recent research and discoveries, but he gives a great overview in my opinion. There are certainly other options out there, but this is a great place to start.

Thanks!  got it added to the Amazon cart for my next order.  There are a lot of individuals and events I'm curious about; I'm trying satisfy my curiousity without getting "too far" into the questions.  (Too busy puzzling my way through questions I already got too far into!)

I think that I posted this before, but this kind of hokey docu-drama presents an actually pretty accurate story regarding the famous gunfight near the OK Corral. I think that it's worth watching, although it's unintentionally funny sometimes...

Thanks Griff, I jumped forward to the shootout part.  Very un-hollywood-like!

I like the way that they show it in real time, then they break it down to give the details.
