The Gunfight at the O.K. Corral is generally regarded as the most famous shoot-out in American history. It is thanks to Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas and the well researched, historically accurate* film, Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, that the shoot-out at Tombstone is so well-recognised (*that was sarcasm). Here’s the trailer for you to re-acquaint yourself with this classic!
The Osprey Raid title Tombstone – Wyatt Earp, the O.K. Corral, and the Vendetta Ride 1881-82 looks at the events leading up to and after the famous gunfight and it offers an interesting examination of a time in history dramatically altered by popular culture, as well as the beautiful illustrations Osprey is known for and photographs from the era.
