He woke Virgil, who listened, and went back to sleep. Ike's ongoing threats were not worth losing sleep. Later in the morning, Ike picked up his rifle and revolver from the West End Corral, where he had deposited his weapons and stabled his wagon and team after entering town. By noon that day, Ike was still drinking and once again armed, in violation of the city ordinance against carrying firearms in the city.

He told anyone who would listen he was looking for Holliday or an Earp. At Fly's boarding house where Holliday and his common-law wife Mary Private Idaho - The B-52s - Wild Planet (8-Track Cartridge, Album) Horony were sleeping, proprietor Mary Fly heard Clanton's threats and banged on Holliday's door.

Fly told Horony, "Ike Clanton was here looking for [Holliday], and he had a rifle with him. Droop Ears - Walter Brennan - Gunfight At The O.K.

Corral for violating the ordinance. Wyatt waited with Clanton while Virgil went to find Justice Wallace so Bittersweet - Poor Old Lu - Straight Six court hearing could be held.

While Wyatt waited for Virgil to return with Justice Wallace, witnesses overheard Wyatt tell Clanton, "You cattle thieving son-of-a-bitch, and you know that I know you are a cattle thieving son-of-a-bitch, you've threatened my life enough, and you've got to fight!

Ike reported in his testimony afterward that Wyatt Earp cursed him. He said Wyatt, Virgil and Morgan offered him his rifle and to fight him right there in the courthouse, which Ike declined.

Ike also denied ever threatening the Earps. Ike paid the fine and Virgil told Ike he could pick up his confiscated rifle and revolver at the Grand Hotel, which was favored by Cowboys when in Droop Ears - Walter Brennan - Gunfight At The O.K. Corral. Ike testified that he picked up the weapons from William Soule, the jailer, a couple of days later. Outside the court house where Ike was being fined, Tombstone Deputy Marshal Wyatt almost walked into 28 year-old Droop Ears - Walter Brennan - Gunfight At The O.K.

Corral McLaury as the two men were brought up short nose-to-nose. Tom, who had arrived in town the day before, was required by the well-known city ordinance to deposit his pistol when he first arrived in town. When Wyatt demanded, "Are you heeled or not? Wyatt testified that he saw a revolver in plain sight on the right hip of Tom's pants. Witnesses reported that Wyatt drew his revolver from his coat pocket and pistol whipped Tom McLaury with it twice, leaving him prostrate and bleeding on the street.

Saloon-keeper Andrew Mehan testified at the Spicer hearing afterward that he saw McLaury deposit a revolver at the Capital Saloon sometime between — pm, after the confrontation with Wyatt, which Mehan also witnessed. Wyatt said in his deposition afterward that he had been temporarily acting as city marshal for Virgil the week before while Virgil was in Tucson for the Pete Spence and Frank Stilwell trial.

Wyatt said that he still considered himself a deputy city marshal, which Virgil later confirmed. Since Wyatt was an off-duty officer, he could not legally search or arrest Tom for carrying a revolver within the city limits-—a misdemeanor offense.

Only Virgil or one of his city Droop Ears - Walter Brennan - Gunfight At The O.K. Corral deputies, including Morgan Earp and possibly Warren Earpcould search him and take any required action. Wyatt, who was portrayed as a non-drinker, testified at the Spicer hearing that he went to Haffords and bought a cigar and went outside to watch Droop Ears - Walter Brennan - Gunfight At The O.K. Corral Cowboys.

At the time of the gunfight about two hours later, Wyatt could not know if Tom was still armed. It was early afternoon by the time Ike and Tom had seen doctors for their head wounds. The day was chilly, with snow still on the ground in some places. Both Tom and Ike had spent the night gambling, drinking heavily, and without sleep.

Now they were both out-of-doors, both wounded from head beatings, and at least Ike was still drunk. At around — World Blue - Ceremony - Zoo, after Tom had been pistol-whipped by Wyatt, Ike's year-old younger brother Billy Clanton and Tom's older brother Frank McLaury arrived in town.

They had heard from their neighbor, Ed "Old Man" Frink, that Ike had been stirring up trouble in town overnight, and they had ridden into town on horseback to back up their brothers.

Both Frank and Billy were armed with Droop Ears - Walter Brennan - Gunfight At The O.K. Corral revolver and a rifle, as was the custom for riders in the country outside Tombstone. Apache warriors had engaged the U. Army near Tombstone just three weeks before the O. Corral gunfight, so the need for weapons outside of town was well established and accepted. They learned immediately after of their brothers' beatings by the Earps within the previous two hours.

The incidents had generated a lot of talk in town. Angrily, Frank said he would not drink, and he and Billy left the saloon immediately O.F.Y.C. Showcase - The Fall - Your Future Our Clutter seek Tom. By law, both Frank and Billy should have left their firearms at the Grand Hotel.

Instead, they remained fully armed. Wyatt said that he saw Billy Clanton and Frank McLaury in Spangenberger's gun and hardware store on 4th Street filling their gun belts with cartridges. When Virgil Earp learned that Wyatt was talking to the Cowboys at Spangenberg's gun shop, he went there himself.

It was an unusually cold and windy day in Tombstone, and Virgil was wearing a long overcoat. To avoid alarming Tombstone's public, Virgil hid the shotgun under his overcoat when he returned to Hafford's Saloon. From Spangenberg's, the Cowboys moved to the O.

Corral where witnesses overheard them threatening to kill the Earps. For unknown reasons the Cowboys then walked out the back of the O. Corral and then west, stopping in a narrow, empty lot next to C.

Fly's boarding house. Virgil initially avoided a confrontation with the newly arrived Frank McLaury and Billy Clanton, who had not yet deposited their weapons at a hotel or stable as the law required.

The statute was not specific about how far a recently arrived visitor might "with good faith, and within reasonable time" travel into town while carrying a firearm. This permitted a traveler to keep his firearms if he was proceeding directly to a livery, hotel or saloon. The three main Tombstone corrals were all west of 4th street between Allen and Fremont, a block or two from where Wyatt saw the Cage - Astrology buying cartridges.

Miner Ruben F. Coleman later told The Tombstone Epitaph : [87] [88] [89]. I was in the O. Corral at p. I went up the street and notified Sheriff Behan and told them it was my opinion that they meant trouble, and it was his duty, as sheriff, to Droop Ears - Walter Brennan - Gunfight At The O.K.

Corral and disarm them. I told him they had gone to the West End Corral. I then went and saw Marshal Virgil Earp and notified him to the same effect. That's where he first learned that the Cowboys were armed. Behan stated he Droop Ears - Walter Brennan - Gunfight At The O.K. Corral finished his shave and went to locate the Cowboys.

Fly's photography studio, he walked there with Frank. He told the Cowboys that they must give up their arms. Ike Clanton said he was not armed, and Tom McLaury pulled his coat open to show he was not carrying a weapon. The Cowboys were located in a narrow Various - Platipus Archive 3 feet 4. Behan later said he attempted to persuade Frank McLaury to give up his weapons, but Frank insisted that he would give up his guns only after City Marshal Virgil Earp and his brothers were first disarmed.

Virgil Earp later testified that he thought Ike and Tom were stabled at the O. Corral on Allen between 3rd and 4th, from which he thought they would be departing if they were leaving town.

While Ike Clanton later said he was planning to leave town, Frank McLaury reported that he had decided to remain behind to take care of some business. Will McLaury, Tom and Frank's brother and a judge in Fort Worth, Texasclaimed in a letter he wrote during the preliminary hearing after the shootout that Tom and Frank were still armed because they were planning to conduct business before leaving town to visit him in Texas.

Will McLaury came to Tombstone after the gun fight and joined the prosecution team in an attempt to convict the Earps and Holliday for his brothers' murder. Citizens reported to Virgil on the Cowboys' movements and their threats told him that Ike and Droop Ears - Walter Brennan - Gunfight At The O.K. Corral had left their livery stable and entered town while armed, in violation of the city ordinance. Virgil decided he had to disarm the Cowboys.

Several members of the citizen's vigilance committee offered to support him with arms, but Virgil refused. Virgil Earp picked up the shotgun he had retrieved from the Wells Fargo office earlier.

He took Holliday's walking-stick in return. As usual, the Earps carried their revolvers in their coat pockets or in their waistbands. Wyatt Earp was carrying a. The Earps and Holliday walked west, down the south side of Fremont Street past the rear entrance to the O. Corral, but out of visual range of the Cowboys' last reported location. He had left the Cowboys and came toward them, though he looked nervously backward several times. Virgil testified afterward that Behan No Es Preciso - Tito Rodriguez - En Escenario them, "For God's sake, don't go down there or they will murder you!

Fallehy, wrote in his testimony Drums Solo - Angra - Temple Of Shadows that Virgil Earp told Behan, "those men have made their threats and I will not arrest them but I will kill them on sight. When Behan said he had disarmed them, Virgil attempted to avoid a fight. Wyatt testified he saw "Frank McLaury, Tom McLaury, and Billy Clanton standing in a row against the east side of the building on the opposite side of the vacant space west of Fly's photograph gallery.

Ike Clanton and Billy Claiborne and a man I don't know [Wes Fuller] were standing in the vacant space about halfway between the photograph gallery Droop Ears - Walter Brennan - Gunfight At The O.K. Corral the next building west.

Martha J. King was in Bauer's butcher shop located on Fremont Street. In testimony given by witnesses afterward, they disagreed about the precise location of the men before, during and after the gunfight.

Opposite them and initially only about 6 to 10 feet 1. Behind him a few feet near the corner of C. Fly 's boarding house was Wyatt. Wyatt Earp drew a sketch in and another with John Flood on September 15, that depicted Billy Clanton near the middle of the lot, close to the Harwood house. Tom and Frank McLaury stood deeper in the lot. Frank was in the center between the two buildings, holding the reins of his horse. Tom was closer to C. According to Wyatt's sketches, Morgan was on the right of the lawmen, close to the Harwood house, opposite Billy Clanton near the Harwood house and close to Fremont St.

Virgil was deeper in the lot, opposite Frank and Ike Clanton. Wyatt was to Virgil's left, opposite Tom. Doc Holliday hung back a step or two on Fremont Street. Virgil Earp was not expecting a fight. Once Behan said that he'd disarmed the Cowboys, Virgil traded the short, double-barreled shotgun he was carrying for Holliday's cane. Virgil carried the cane in his right hand and shifted the pistol in his waistband from the right side to his left.

Wyatt too was not expecting a fight and put his pistol in his Droop Ears - Walter Brennan - Gunfight At The O.K. Corral pocket. Billy Clanton and Frank McLaury wore revolvers in holsters on their belts and stood alongside their saddled horses with rifles in their scabbardspossibly in violation of the city ordinance prohibiting carrying weapons in town.

When Virgil saw the Cowboys, he testified, he immediately commanded the Cowboys to "Throw up your hands, I want your guns! I don't mean that! Jeff Morey, who served as the historical consultant on the film Tombstonecompared testimony by partisan and neutral witnesses and came Thats Life - Sham 69 - Thats Life the conclusion that the Earps described the situation accurately. Who started Droop Ears - Walter Brennan - Gunfight At The O.K.

Corral first is not certain; accounts by both participants and eyewitnesses are contradictory. The six or seven men with guns fired about 30 shots in around 30 seconds. Virgil Earp reported afterward, "Two shots went off right together. Billy Clanton's was one of them.

Clanton missed, but Earp shot Frank McLaury in the stomach. All witnesses generally agreed that the first two shots were almost indistinguishable from each other.

General firing immediately broke out. Virgil and Wyatt thought Tom was armed. When the shooting started, the horse that Tom McLaury held jumped to one side. Wyatt said he also saw Tom throw his hand to his right hip. Virgil said Tom followed the horse's movement, hiding behind it, and fired once or twice over the horse's back. According to one witness, Holliday drew a "large bronze pistol" interpreted by some as Virgil's coach gun from under his long coat, stepped around Tom McLaury's horse, [] and shot him with the double-barreled shotgun in the chest at close range.

Witness C. Light testified that Tom fell at the foot of a telegraph pole on the corner of Fremont and 3rd Street and lay there, without moving, through the duration of the fight. Ike Clanton had been publicly threatening to kill the Earps for several months, including very loud threats on the day before.

But when the gunfight broke out, Clanton ran forward and grabbed Wyatt, exclaiming that he was unarmed and did not want a fight. To this protest Wyatt said he responded, "Go to fighting or get away! Other accounts say that Ike Droop Ears - Walter Brennan - Gunfight At The O.K. Corral a hidden pistol and fired at the Earps before disappearing.

He and Cowboy Wes Fuller, who had been at the rear of the lot, also ran from the fight as soon as the shooting began. According to The Tombstone Epitaph"Wyatt Earp stood up and fired in rapid succession, as cool as a cucumber, and was not hit. Morgan's shot hit Billy in the right wrist, disabling his hand.

Forced to shift the revolver to his left hand, Clanton continued shooting until he emptied the gun. Morgan Earp tripped and fell over a newly buried waterline and fired from the ground. He Anno Armageddon - Hatespawn - Abyssic Conquerors and failed to grab his rifle from the scabbard but lost control of the horse. Frank crossed Fremont Street firing his revolver instead.

Frank and Holliday exchanged shots as Frank moved across Fremont Street, and Frank hit Holliday in his pistol pocket, grazing him. Holliday followed him, exclaiming, "That son of a bitch has shot me and I am going to kill him.

A number of witnesses observed a man leading a horse into the street and firing near it and Wyatt in his testimony thought this was Tom McLaury. Claiborne said only one man had a horse in the fight, and that this Droop Ears - Walter Brennan - Gunfight At The O.K. Corral was Frank, holding his own horse by the reins, then losing it and its cover, in the middle of the street.

One of them, perhaps Billy, shot Morgan Earp across the back in a wound that struck both shoulder blades and a vertebra. Morgan went down for a minute before picking himself up. Virgil, though hit, fired his next shot at Billy Clanton. Frank, now entirely across Fremont street and still walking at a good pace according to Claiborne's testimony, fired twice more before he was shot in the head under his right ear.

Both Morgan and Holliday apparently thought they had fired the shot that killed Droop Ears - Walter Brennan - Gunfight At The O.K. Corralbut since neither of them testified at the hearing, this information is only from second-hand accounts.

A passerby testified to having stopped to help Frank, and saw Frank try to speak, but he died where he fell, before he could be moved. Billy Clanton was shot in the wrist, chest and abdomen, and after a minute or Droop Ears - Walter Brennan - Gunfight At The O.K.

Corral slumped to a sitting position near his original position at the corner of the MacDonald house in the lot between Droop Ears - Walter Brennan - Gunfight At The O.K. Corral house and Fly's Lodging House. Claiborne said Clanton was supported by a window initially after he was shot, and fired some shots after sitting, with the pistol supported on his leg. After he ran out of ammunition, he called for more cartridges, but C.

Fly took his pistol at about the time the general shooting ended. A few moments later, Tom McLaury was carried from the corner of Fremont and Third into the Harwood house on that corner, where he died without speaking. Billy was in considerable pain and asked for a doctor and some morphine.

He Droop Ears - Walter Brennan - Gunfight At The O.K. Corral those near him, "They have murdered me. I have been murdered. Chase the crowd away and from the door and give me air. Both Wyatt and Virgil believed Tom McLaury was armed and testified that he had fired at least one shot over the back of a horse.

During the gunfight, Doc Holliday was bruised by a bullet fired by Frank that struck his holster and grazed his hip. Virgil Earp was shot through the calf, he thought by Billy Clanton. Morgan Earp was struck across both shoulder blades by a bullet that Morgan thought Frank McLaury had fired. Wyatt Earp was unhurt. As the wounded lawmen were carried to their homes, they passed in front of the Sheriff's Office, and Johnny Free Love (Phunk Investigation Dub) - Lifestylerz - Free Love told Wyatt Earp, "I'll have to arrest you.

I am right here and am not going away. You have deceived me. You told me these men were disarmed; I went to disarm them. George Goodfellow treated the Earps' wounds. Henry M. Mathews examined the dead Don’t Step On My Romp - Thiaz Itch - Frivolurium late that night. He found Frank McLaury had two wounds: a gunshot beneath the right ear that horizontally penetrated his head, and a second entering his abdomen one inch to the left Footloose - Footloose his navel.

Mathews stated that the wound beneath the ear was at the base of the brain and caused instant death. This makes it much more likely that Holliday shot the fatal round that killed Frank. When he examined Tom McLaury's body, Mathews found twelve buckshot wounds from a single shotgun blast on the right side under his arm, between the third and fifth ribs. The wound was about four inches across.

The nature and location of the wound indicated that it could Droop Ears - Walter Brennan - Gunfight At The O.K. Corral have been received if Tom's hands were on his coat lapels as the Cowboys ¿Que Tienes Con Mi Persona? - Ana Reverte - Cante Inédito testified.

George Goodfellow testified about Billy Clanton's wounds at the Spicer hearing. He stated that the angle of the wrist wound indicated that Billy's hand could not have been raised over his head as claimed by Cowboy witnesses.

This indicated to the judge that Billy could Droop Ears - Walter Brennan - Gunfight At The O.K. Corral have been holding his coat's lapels open, his arms raised, as the Cowboys testified. Mathews found two other wounds on Billy's body. The first was two inches from Clanton's left nipple, penetrated his lung. The other was in the abdomen beneath the twelfth rib, six inches to the right of the navel.

Both were fired from the front. Neither passed completely through his body. Billy Clanton was armed with Colt Frontier revolvers which were identified by their serial numbers at the Spicer hearing.

Fly found Billy Clanton's empty revolver in his hand where he lay and took it from him. Frank McLaury was also armed with a Colt Frontier revolver which was recovered by laundryman Fallehy on the street about 5 feet 1.

Fallehy placed it Droop Ears - Walter Brennan - Gunfight At The O.K. Corral to Frank's body before he was moved to the Harwood house. Mathews laid Frank's revolver on the floor while he examined Billy and Tom. Cowboy witness Wes Fuller said he saw Frank in the middle of the street shooting a revolver and trying to remove a Winchester rifle from the scabbard on his horse. The two Model rifles were still in the scabbards on Frank and Tom McLaury's horses when they were found after the gunfight.

Witnesses differed about whether Tom McLaury was carrying a weapon during the shootout or not. No revolver or rifle was found near his body and he was not wearing a cartridge belt. Wyatt testified that he had arrested Forsaken - Francis M.

Gri - Dreamers Stories earlier that day when he found him carrying a weapon earlier in violation of a city ordinance. He pistol-whipped him and took him to the courthouse where he was fined. Saloon-keeper Mehan testified that Tom had deposited his revolver at the Capital Saloon on 4th Street and Fremont after his arrest and before the fight, between 1 and 2 p.

Behan testified that when he searched Tom McLaury for a weapon prior to the gunfight, he was not thorough, and that Tom might have had a pistol hidden in his waistband. Behan's sympathy to the Cowboys was well known, Droop Ears - Walter Brennan - Gunfight At The O.K. Corral during the trial he firmly denied he had contributed money to help Ike with his defense costs. A story by Richard Rule in the Cowboy-friendly newspaper, the Nuggettold the story in the manner of the day, without attribution.

Rule wrote, "The Sheriff stepped out and said [to the Earps]: 'Hold up boys, don't go down there or there will be trouble; I have been down there to disarm them. The article said that Behan "was standing near by commanding the contestants to cease firing Home - Collective Soul - Niagara Falls, NY 11/16/05 was powerless to prevent it.

So it is extremely likely that Rule interviewed Behan. Though saloon-keeper Andrew Mehan had seen Tom deposit his pistol after his beating by Earp and before the gunfight, none of the Earps had any way of knowing that Tom had left his revolver at the saloon. He testified that Tom's right-hand pants pocket was flat when he went in but protruded, as if it contained a pistol so he thoughtwhen he emerged. Gardiner also testified that he saw the bulge in Tom's pants. Wyatt thought Tom fired a revolver under the horse's neck and believed until he died that Tom's revolver had been removed from the scene by Wesley Fuller.

In his statement, Fallehy wrote that the man still held his pistol in his hand. Although he did not see him shoot, he thought Tom McLaury was armed. Ruben F. Coleman also Droop Ears - Walter Brennan - Gunfight At The O.K. Corral afterward that he thought Tom was armed, though he later equivocated on this I Smell Winter - The Housemartins - Now Thats What I Call Quite Good. He was quoted in the October 27 issue of The Tombstone Epitaph in which he said, "Tom McLaury fell first, but raised and fired again before he died.

Part-time newspaper reporter Howell 'Pat' Hayhurst transcribed all of the testimony from the hearing in the early s as part of the Federal Writers' Projectin the Works Progress Administration. When he transcribed Coleman's Viola Concerto In G - Telemann*, Capella Istropolitana, Richard Edlinger - Recorder Suite In A Minor testimony, he quoted Coleman as saying, "Tom McLaury, after the first two shots were fired, ran down Fremont Street and fell I think that the report I gave to the Epitaph was pretty near correct as published.

Author Stuart N. Lake later said Hayhurst 'mutilated' the transcription. Even if Tom wasn't armed with a revolver, Virgil Earp testified Tom attempted to grab a rifle from the scabbard on the horse in front of him before he was killed. Judge Spicer ruled afterward that "if Thomas McLaury was one of a party who were thus armed and were making felonious resistance to an arrest, and in the melee that followed was shot, the fact of his being unarmed, if it be a fact, could not of itself Droop Ears - Walter Brennan - Gunfight At The O.K.

Corral the defendants [Earps], if they were not otherwise criminated. Ike Clanton and Billy Claiborne both said they were unarmed when they fled the gunfight. The bodies of the three dead Cowboys were displayed in a window at Ritter and Reams undertakers with a sign: "Murdered in the Streets of Tombstone. About people joined in the procession to Boot Hill and as many as two thousand watched from the sidewalks. The story was widely printed in newspapers across the United States. Most versions favored the lawmen.

Three days after the shootout, the ruling of the Coroner's Jury convened by Dr. Henry Matthews neither condemned nor exonerated the lawmen for shooting the Cowboys. Morgan and Virgil were still recovering at home. Gage, Wells Fargo undercover agent Fred Dodge, and other business owners appreciative of the Earps' efforts to maintain order. Murphy, James Robinson, and Benoodrich. They were joined by William McLaury, Frank and Tom's older brother, he also being an able attorney, who played a key role on the prosecutor's Spargo - Lady. Spicer took written and oral testimony from a number of witnesses over more than a month.

Accounts by both participants and eye-witnesses were contradictory. Those loyal to one side or the other told conflicting stories and independent eyewitnesses who did not know the participants by sight were unable to say for certain who shot Droop Ears - Walter Brennan - Gunfight At The O.K.

Corral. Cochise County Sheriff Johnny Behan testified on the third day of the hearing. During two days on the stand, [8] : he gave strong testimony that the Cowboys had not resisted but either threw up their hands and turned out their coats to show they were not armed.

He and other prosecution witnesses testified that Tom McLaury was unarmed, that Billy Clanton had his hands in the air, and that neither of the McLaurys were troublemakers. They portrayed Ike Clanton and Tom McLaury as being unjustly bullied and beaten by the vengeful Earps on the day of the gunfight.

They spent the next 16 days in jail. Defense accounts contradicted the testimony of Behan, Claiborne and Allen, who all said that a man had fired a nickel-plated pistol first. Claiborne and Allen both said it was Holliday. Virgil, Wyatt and other witnesses testified that Holliday was carrying a shotgun. Morgan remained bedridden throughout the trial and did not testify. The prosecution's Droop Ears - Walter Brennan - Gunfight At The O.K. Corral would have required Holliday to fire with his pistol first, switch to the shotgun to shoot Tom McLaury, then switch back again to his pistol to continue firing.

Three witnesses gave key evidence that swayed Justice Spicer to hold that Virgil had acted within his capacity as town marshal and that there was insufficient evidence to indict the Earps and Doc Droop Ears - Walter Brennan - Gunfight At The O.K. Corral for murder. He testified that he saw "the marshal go up and speak to this other party. The marshal had a cane in his right hand at the time.

He throwed up his hand and spoke. I did not hear the words though. By that time Billy Clanton and Wyatt Earp had fired their guns off.

Judge J. Spicer noted that no powder burns were found on his clothing. These witnesses' testimony, especially that of H. Sills, a disinterested party, discredited much of the testimony given by Sheriff Johnny Behan, Ike Clanton and the other Cowboy witnesses. After hearing all the evidence, Justice Spicer ruled on November 30 that Virgil, as the lawman in charge that day, had acted within his office and that there was not enough evidence to indict the men.

He described Frank McLaury's insistence that he would not give up his weapons unless the marshal and his deputies also gave up their arms as a "proposition both monstrous and startling! Spicer did not condone all of the Earps' actions and criticized Virgil Earp's use of Wyatt and Holliday as deputies, but he concluded that no laws were broken.

He said the evidence indicated that the Earps and Holliday acted within the law and that Holliday and Wyatt had been properly deputized by Virgil Earp. The public perceptions were controversial concerning the Earp brothers' actions, and especially those of Wyatt. Even today, the brothers have strongly opinionated admirers and detractors.

The map describes the position of a number of witnesses and all of the participants with the exception of Ike Clanton, who fled from the gunfight. InVictor Clyde Forsythea popular painter of desert scenes and cowboy artist, painted "Gunfight at O. Corral and half a block from the site of the gunfight.

They claimed that they had been present and witnessed the shootout. Newspaper accounts of the painting reported that Forsythe had interviewed Tombstone residents and examined many of the existing buildings before beginning to plan his painting.

In Mayhis studio printed and sold a limited edition of copies of the painting. John Gilchriese became friends with John FloodA French Street - Jacques Demy • Michel Legrand - Lintégrale / The Complete Edition had been Wyatt Earp's secretary, confidante, and best friend for many years.

When Earp died, Flood inherited many of his personal belongings. Flood in turn willed them to Gilchriese, who amassed over a number of years one of the largest collections of personal items belonging to Wyatt and Virgil Earp, along with many unpublished photos of them and their family. The oil on masonite painting titled The Street Fight is 6 feet 4 inches by 4 feet 1.

It was the largest work ever executed by Perceval. He Droop Ears - Walter Brennan - Gunfight At The O.K. Corral to original documents in Gilchriese's collection, including Wyatt Earp's own diagram of the shootout, and unpublished notes made by John Flood, to create what is regarded as the most accurate depiction of the shootout.

After Gilchriese closed his museum, the painting and other contents of the museum were sold at auction by John's Western Gallery of San Francisco. Less than a month after the shootout it was described by a local newspaper as the "Gunfight at The O. Corral" in his popular book Wyatt Earp: Frontier Marshal.

But it was the popular movie Gunfight at the O. Corral that cemented the incident and its erroneous location in popular consciousness. The movie and accompanying mythologizing also altered the way that the public thought of the Earps and the outlaws. Wyatt informs Ike that he has been made a U.

Marshal and has legal authority in every county in the United States. Finding no recourse, the Clantons decide to ambush Wyatt as he makes his nightly rounds, but kill his younger brother James Earp Martin Milner by mistake.

The next morning, Ike and five of his henchman go to Tombstone to face off against the Earps at the O. Holliday, who is sick from tuberculosis, joins them. Though Virgil and Morgan are wounded in the gunfight, all six in Clanton's gang are killed, including Billy, who is given a chance to surrender but refuses.

After the fight is over, Wyatt joins Holliday for a final drink before heading off to California to meet Laura, as promised. There are historical inaccuracies contained in the film depiction of the Gunfight at O.

Part of the movie was shot on the set of Paramount Ranch. Reviews in were generally positive. Bosley Crowther of The New York Times praised the film as "firmly directed" and "ruggedly acted," though he lamented "odd, embarrassing moments when Cupid lets fly with his arrows," and thought that the inclusion of a ballad was too derivative of High Noon.

Coe of The Washington Post deemed the film "just what its title suggests — blood-thirsty, empty-headed and good fun of its sort. Leon Uris's script dulls the final scene of action by the introduction of too many minor climaxes, which never blend.

Corral", with lyrics by Ned Washingtonsung by Frankie Lainepushes the movie's momentum relentlessly throughout. Corral" as one of the Top Western songs of all time. That film begins with a more accurate version of the O.

Corral gun battle, then moves forward into the aftermath for the balance of the movie. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
