. . .I believe it was Wyatt who originally told the tale of Gunfight at Ok Corral. . .
Earp lived long enough to actually meet and influence people in the film business, dying in 1929 at the ripe age of 80. Director John Ford had been told the OK Corral story by Earp personally, and later used Earp's version for his staging of the scene in My Darling Clementine.
