No upcoming showtimes scheduled.
Director: John Sturges, John Sturges
1957 / 122min / 35mm
Frequent co-stars Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas had their second big-screen pairing playing a stoic Wyatt Earp and a trigger-happy Doc Holliday in Sturges’s vivid VistaVision staging of the storied 1881 shootout in Tombstone, Arizona, which barrels towards its inevitable bloodletting climax on the back of a stirring Dimitri Tiomkin score. Jo Van Fleet, playing Holliday’s hot-headed Hungarian galpal, joins a superb supporting cast that including Lee Van Cleef, Rhonda Fleming, and a young Dennis Hopper in a rough ’n’ rowdy action classic.
