Great Beuatiful Movie. But...


In my opinion the good old Will Geer was hopelessly miscast as Wyatt Earp.
He comes out like a pleasant old folk with his goofy walk and doesn't inspire

To me, Earp's introduction constitutes one of the best moments in the film, or in any Western ... precisely because it confounds the viewer's expectation.
