Hour of the Gun 09/19/17
It’s the one saga of the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral that puts Western legend into proper perspective as to the nature of money, power and the law: Edward Anhalt’s vision is of a gangland turf war with sagebrush and whiskey bottles. James Garner is a humorless Wyatt Earp, matched by Jason Robards’ excellent Doc Holliday. It’s one of John Sturges’ best movies, with yet another impressive music score by Jerry Goldsmith. And I even offer an unsolicited idea for a more satisfying ending. On Blu-ray from Twilight Time.
