TOMBSTONE (1993) (Scalarama)
An unusual 90s psychological western, portraying events that led up to the mythic shootout at the O.K. Corral with Val Kilmer's definitive portrayal of the louche Doc Holliday, and one of the most quotable scripts ever.
After cleaning up the crime in Dodge City, Wyatt Earp (Kurt Russell) moves to Tombstone, Arizona, and wishes to get rich in obscurity. He meets his brothers there, as well as his old friend Doc Holliday (Kilmer). A band of outlaws that call themselves The Cowboys are causing problems in the region with various acts of random violence, and inevitably enter into a deadly confrontation with Holliday and the Earps.
In 2017 we lost two of the stars of TOMBSTONE, Bill Paxton (Morgan Earp) and Powers Boothe ('Curly Bill' Brocius), this screening is a tribute to their work.
