Was watching Gunfight at the O.K. Corral last night on TCM and this video seems to fit today.
The film was so good that it inspired me to learn a bit about the Wild West on Wikipedia. Turns out that Doc Holliday and Wyatt Earp were real people and friends. And the gunslinger “doc” was also a graduate of dental school!
Earp apparently wanted someone to make a movie about his life but nobody took up the offer while he was still living. He did, however, manage to get a book published… after his death.
Another “doc,” Doctor McCoy of Star Trek (actor DeForest Kelley), was in the film.
And if I remember right Kelley did an episode in Star Trek where he was at OK Corral one more time (or some kind of alien reproduction of it…).
Funny how myth and reality intertwine.
As for Hank Williams Sr., well nothing much has to be said about him. Anyone who knows anything will know that he’s one of the greats… one of the best composers and performers of all time.
