Editorial Reviews

Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas star as larger-than-life heroes in this classic Western epic directed by John Sturges. Frontier lawman Wyatt Earp (Lancaster) joins his three brothers in their feud against the villainous Clanton gang, a local clan of cattle thieves in Tombstone, Arizona. When Earp defends the sickly gambler John "Doc" Holliday (Douglas) and puts a stop to the Clanton's lawlessness, the ruthless outlaws seek revenge and murder one of Earp's brothers. This leads the men into the most devastating showdown in Wild West History! Gunfight at the O.K. Corral is a timeless, cinematic tale of good versus evil.

Customer Reviews

This was a pretty good telling of the OK Corral story.
puppyfan
It is great entertainment and really, most Westerns that portray historical events take liberties with the facts.
R. Edward Merrell, Jr.
It is one of the best westerns movies that I have seen.

'Gunfight at O.K. Corral' is one of the many films that have told the tale of the famous showdown between the Earps and the Clantons, but what sets this version apart is the casting of Burt Lancaster as the straight-shooting Marshal Wyatt Earp, and Kirk Douglas as the sardonic, dying gambler, Doc Holliday. As in all their pairings, there is a chemistry between them that makes even mundane scripts seem magical!
Lancaster, continuing his rule of alternating between heavy drama and action films, researched the historic Earp extensively, speaking to many who knew him, and his performance is restrained and assured. Douglas, on the other hand, fresh from playing Vincent Van Gogh in 'Lust for Life', knew he needed a splashy hit film, and played Doc Holliday as larger than life, swaggering, diseased, and charismatic. His portrayal is far closer in spirit to the interpretions of Holliday by Val Kilmer, in 'Tombstone', and Dennis Quaid, in 'Wyatt Earp', than Victor Mature, in John Ford's 'My Darling Clementine'.
The film's climactic scene is fanciful, historically, but a terrific gunbattle!
Other aspects of the film to enjoy...Dimitri Tiompkin's magnificent musical score, highlighted by Frankie Laine's unforgettable performance of the title tune, throughout the film...Excellent supporting players, including Jo Van Fleet as Holliday's mistress, John Ireland as Johnny Ringo, a young Dennis Hopper as Billy Clanton, and Rhonda Fleming as the gambler girlfriend of Wyatt (based on Earp's actual wife, Josie)...cameos by Kenneth Tobey as Bat Masterson, DeForest Kelley as Morgan Earp, Martin Milner as James Earp, and Frank Faylen as the corrupt sheriff.

Format: DVD
Recently I heard a teenager bemoaning the death of King Kong in Peter Jackson's 2005 remake of the 1933 Merian Cooper classic. He was of the opinion that they should never have made it where Kong died. The ending should have been different. The big guy should have gotten back to Skull Island.

I told this young fellow that there were certain constants in life...and in the movies...that you just had to learn to deal with; Cleopatra was always going to be bitten by the asp, Julius Caeser was always going to go down to assassins' knives,
the Titanic was always going to sink, the Earps and Doc Holliday were always going to kill the Clantons & McLaurys at the O.K. Corral, and King Kong was always going to get shot off the building. That's how life works.

And where those Earps and their friends and foes are concerned, John Sturges's 1957 epic oater "Gunfight At the OK Corral" is one of the top cinematic retellings of that bloody day in October of 1881 when the six-guns started blasting and the lead started flying.

"Gunfight" is a well-engineered DVD version of the original widescreen Technicolor original. The colors are warm and vivid and the images sharp and clear. The sound is good and the soundtrack musical score by Dmitri Tiompkin excellent, as is the driving, infectious theme song sung by Frankie Laine. The opening title sequence begins with a group of riders topping a hill and riding down into full audience view with Laine's ballad lyrics (by Tiompkin & Ned Washington) goading the viewer into an interest in who these riders are and what their intentions might be. It is a device that "hooks" viewer attention immediately and draws them quickly into the film story. This is good screenwriting (Leon Uris) and good direction (John Sturges).

Format: Blu-ray
I'll review the Blu ray version of this movie when it hits the streets. In the meantime, here's a little info on the movie itself.

There are several films based on this historic gunfight in Tombstone, Arizona in 1881. They are all pretty good. This is a large production shot in VistaVision with an "A" list cast and an excellent director in John Sturges. A top notch screenwriter, Leon Uris and music by Dimitri Tiomkin pretty much assures a quality product.

Wyatt Earp (Burt Lancaster) meets Doc Holliday (Kirk Douglas) in a west Texas saloon while chasing down the Clanton/McLowery gang. They don't like each other but Wyatt saves Doc from an unjust lynching. Eventually they join forces in Tombstone where Wyatt's brother Virgil is city marshal. Along with another brother, Morgan (Star Trek's DeForest Kelley), the Earps must go against the Clanton clan to exact revenge for the killing of their kid brother Jimmy.

Even with an elongated and climatic gunfight, there is plenty of story to keep us occupied for 2 hours. Most of it involves the byplay between Wyatt and Doc. Both Lancaster and Douglas give fine performances. Another tangent involves the two leads. Wyatt has a brief romance with gambler Laura Denbow played in all her red-haired radiance by Rhonda Fleming. The more interesting affair involves Doc and part time nurse and full time floozy, Kate played with vigor by Jo Van Fleet. The cast is filled with actors I remember well including John Ireland, Earl Holliman, Whit Bissell, Martin Milner, Lee Van Cleef, Jack Elam and a baby faced Dennis Hopper. A terrific classic western.

BLU RAY UPDATE (4-1-14)

While the original DVD previously reviewed still looks pretty good, this new Blu ray version improves in many respects.
