    The hell you say. That's a recent pic, taken at the corner of 4th Street and Allen, just outside the OK Corral, facing east down Allen Street, and the sign behind them says Old West Books, which is a modern sign, still there. As much of Tombstone burned in 1881 and 1882 that's modern latticing on the building from way after the rebuild. Again, modern ACTORS in the street, and #4 doesn't even have the correct hat for the period. The REAL Earps and Holliday never had a pic taken together like that. There are only one or two authenticated pics of Holliday, and I guarantee you, that ain't one of them. NONE of those guys even look close to the real deal.

    Don't tell me I don't know Tombstone, been there plenty of times. For your amusement:

    Depends on the camera used. Daguerreotypes have lots of detail and were common back then.

    Clint Eastwood ain’t squat when compared to Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas. Not to mention Frankie Laine was the greatest singer ever walked the face of the earth.

    Yea, they probably should have. They don't sound too swift if they pay that kind of money without solid history/chain of ownership on it. Anyone could have grabbed a similar gun from that era off the shelf and said 'it was used at the OK Corral', and that sounds exactly what they did.

    Yes they are. Actors. Doc Holliday is correct in all his statements.

    The two men on the far left are Ken Barret and Stephen Kieth, reenactors.

    Was in Tombstone earlier this year, ate at Big Nosed Kate's, checked out the theater and goofy little gun museum near the $$$ machine. BS'ed with a few of the reenactors, seemed surly folks. :D

    My post wasn’t sarcasm; it was a comment on your screen name.

    Since you know nothing about Hollywood. The first two shots were on Camera "A" and then you saw the view from Camera "B". The film editor didn't do a good job of splicing. Watch it again. The first two shots is head on and the third is from a 30 degree angle.

    If you was eating your popcorn and not a 'gun nut' you would not have noticed. Enjoy the movie and do not over think it. :cowboy:
