movie facts

The film, Tombstone, is a Hollywood retelling of the shootout between the Earps and the Cowboys at the OK Corral in Tombstone, Arizona. The Earps are made up of the Earp brothers – Wyatt, Virgil, and Morgan, as well as their friend, Doc Holliday; and the Cowboys are Ike and Billy Clanton, Tom and Frank McLaury, with Billy Claiborne. Historical accounts alleged that Virgil Earp fired the first shot, whipping out his revolver and shooting Billy Clanton point-blank in the chest. Tom McLaury was killed by Doc Holliday with a shot from his double-barreled shotgun. Frank McLaury was wounded bv Wyatt Earp, while Ike Clanton and Billy Claiborne ran off. The 30-second gunfight, which was witnessed by Sheriff Behan, had the Earp brothers and Holliday charged with murder, however a judge had ruled that their actions were still lawful. Tombstone, Arizona was founded by a silver miner, Ed Schieffelin. He discovered valuable silver ore in the Arizona territory and laid his claim on the land by calling it Tombstone, inspired by a warning that a soldier had told him. The date was October 26, 1881 when the famous shootout in O.K. Corral went down. It’s disputed that the event actually took place in a field near the town’s main street and not at the O.K. Corral.
