GUNFIGHT AT THE O.K. CORRAL
Thursday, August 8
(1957, John Sturges) “No guns, no knives, no killing.” Burt Lancaster cautions Kirk Douglas’ Doc Holiday, but of course they end up at that final showdown, to the accompaniment of Dimitri Tiomkin’s throbbing score and Frankie Laine’s wailing of the title ballad. 35mm. Approx. 122 min.
“One of the two best Westerns of the 50s.”
– Gordon Gow
“Just what its title suggests — blood-thirsty, empty-headed and good fun of its sort.”
– Richard L. Coe, The Washington Post
