Re: Will the real Wyatt Earp please stand...

In Hour of the Gun (1967) Wyatt was portrayed by James Garner as quite willing to go outside the law if need be, ostensibly in pursuit of justice but with a strong dose of revenge mixed in. Of course the main bad guy, Ike Clanton, was really bad. Good movie, nice Jerry Goldsmith score.

The little-remembered "Doc" from 1971 has probably the most amoral Wyatt I've seen, played by Harris Yulin. He pretty much just wants to be "the boss" of the town and being a lawman is the best way to get there.

That's a ver cool photo down the article with Dee Kelly playing Morgan! I never knew that.
I would be even better if whoever wrote the caption knew Burt Lancaster from Kirk Douglas.
