Just couldn't let this pass ... ColtCollector1911 and WS23 brought it up ... Which, of the several Wyatt Earps do YOU like best and why? CC1911 really likes the Russel Earp. I prefer the Costner Earp. Better still, I prefer the James Garner Earp but the movie itself is inferior to either of the newer ones, I think. There's a Jimmie Stewart Earp, Burt Lancaster, Garner, Costner and Russel. And Hugh O'Brian, too. Best possible, I think if Lancaster could've played in the Costner version instead of Costner! (Just too old by then ... maybe too dead.) He was GOOD! Just the version he was in, in his day, hadn't got punch the best of the new ones have. Too steretyped, I guess.
