PG-13 | | Adventure, Biography, Crime
From Wichita to Dodge City to the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, a man becomes a myth in this thrilling journey of romance, adventure and desperate, heroic action.
Though the maiming of Virgil Earp and the murder of the youngest Earp sibling Morgan was shown in the film as happening on the same night after the gunfight at the OK Corral on October 26, 1881, in real life the ambush on Virgil and Morgan's murder each happened separately. Virgil Earp was crippled a couple of months later after the gun battle in an ambush one night, in late December 1881. Morgan Earp was murdered about two and a half months later, in March of 1882, as he was playing pool in a local saloon called Campell & Hatch's. As he lay mortally wounded in the back, his last words were "This is the last game of pool I'll ever play."
My name's Wyatt Earp... it all ends *now*!
In the beginning of the movie (1865, the Civil War's end), the Earp family is sitting around a table talking about moving to California. Martha Earp is supposedly going to be staying in Iowa instead of moving with the family so she can marry Jimmy Jorgenson. Such a dilemma is moot as 10-year-old Martha Earp died in 1856, 9 years prior to this scene.
In the USA, Wyatt Earp was also Released on LaserDisc and VHS Expanded Edition. Both had a Running Time of 212 Minutes (3Hrs 32 Minutes)
