All of the movie versions center on the climactic shootout at Tombstone, Arizona’s OK Corral in 1881. Earp’s account of the bloodletting contrasted dramatically with various conflicting versions rendered by supposed witnesses — a crowd large enough to fill the cheap seats at Dodger Stadium. The credible version, espoused by most Western historians who have researched the episode ad nauseam, contends that the Earp brothers went looking for a fight and despite the pleas of the Clantons and McLowrys (one of whom was unarmed), probably fired the first shots. Three of the bad guys died, two of the Earps and Doc Holiday were wounded. The bloody vendetta that followed, including the killing of one Earp brother, the wounding of another and three revenge killings perpetrated by Wyatt, were never portrayed on the screen until the 1990s when “Tombstone” (1993) and “Wyatt Earp” (1994) were made. These two films lay claim to presenting the most accurate historical rendition of Earp’s life.
