| "Whistle Me Up A Memory"
Sheriff Clay Hollister defended the law in "The Town To Tough To Die" and did it with a no nonsense approach. The narration by Harris Claibourn editor of the Tombstone 'Epitaph' brought a sense of additional realism to this high quality show.

Quotes

Harris Claibourne: An actual account from the pages of my newspaper, the Tombstone Epitaph. This is the way it happened... in the town too tough to die.


Goofs

At the beginning of each episode, the narrator claims each is "An actual account from the pages of my newspaper, the Tombstone Epitaph." While the Epitaph was an actual newspaper in Tombstone circa 1881, the series is hit or miss for actual events- and characters. For example, the actual Territorial Governor John C. Fremont is mentioned in the pilot, however, Clay Hollister is referred to as Sheriff of Tombstone. Tombstone by late 1881 was in newly-formed Cochise County, so Hollister would have been called Sheriff of Cochise County. The actual Sheriff of Cochise County in late 1881 was Johnny Behan. Tombstone had a city marshal at the time, Virgil Earp. While Curly Bill Brocius, an actual person, appeared in the pilot (dated August 6, 1881) and two other episodes, no mention is made of the Earp family, who had resided in Tombstone since 1879. The third episode, dated November 1, 1881, was less than a week after the famous October 26, 1881 OK Corral shootout involving the Earps with Doc Holliday against Ike Clanton, Billy Claiborne, Tom and Frank McLaury, and Billy Clanton, yet no mention is made of this significant event.
