    Here is an interview that Wyatt Earp shares his views on "gunfighting". This was sometime in the 1910s he offered to give an interview about his thoughts on using a gun. In his own words, Wyatt is going to explain how he became one of the most feared and accurate gunslingers… even if he was about the slowest. When asked how he became so proficient with a gun… here's his response: "The most important lesson I learned from those proficient gunfighters was the winner of a gunplay usually was the man who took his time. The second was that, if...

    GLENDALE, Calif. - "Wyatt Earp" star Hugh O'Brian, 81, has married for the first time in what the couple described as "a wedding to die for." The weekend ceremony was held at Forest Lawn Memorial Park. "This is my first, and most definitely, my last trip down the aisle," O'Brian said in a statement announcing his marriage Sunday afternoon to his girlfriend of 18 years, teacher Virginia Barber, 54. It was the bride's second marriage. Some 300 guests — including look-alikes of John Wayne and Pope John Paul — witnessed the ceremony at the cemetery's Hall of Crucifixion-Resurrection, publicist Monique...

    Hugh O’Brian, who shot to fame as Sheriff Wyatt Earp in what was hailed as television’s first adult Western, has died. He was 91. A representative from HOBY, a philanthropic organization O’Brian founded, says he died at home Monday morning in Beverly Hills. Until “The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp” debuted in September 1955, most TV Westerns — “The Lone Ranger,” “Hopalong Cassidy,” the singing cowboys’ series — were aimed at adolescent boys. “Wyatt Earp,” on the other hand, was based on a real-life Western hero, and some of its stories were authentic. (The real Earp, who lived from...

    TOMBSTONE, Ariz. (AP) — An actor staging a historical gunfight in the Old West town of Tombstone and a bystander were shot with live rounds during a show that was supposed to use blanks, leading officials to call for the re-enactments popular with tourists to be put on hold. The shooting happened Sunday afternoon as two performers from the Tombstone Vigilante group re-enacted a gunfight in the 19th century mining town made famous by Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday and the O.K. Corral.

    Obama's a target at O.K. Corral In modern-day Tombstone, they're quick to condemn Democrats and a president whose middle name is Hussein At high noon today, just as it was in history, gunfire crackles over the saloons and stagecoaches of the Old West's most authentically phoney village. Mortally wounded desperadoes stagger, topple, and croak, while their tin-badged terminators repair to Big Nose Kate's for poker and rotgut until it's time to slay for pay again. In the old silver-and goldmining centre of Tombstone, down in Cochise County, 50 kilometres north of the Mexican border, the best-attended duels are staged daily...

    On This Day In History November 8, 1887 Doc Holliday dies of tuberculosis On this day, Doc Holliday--gunslinger, gambler, and occasional dentist--dies from tuberculosis. Though he was perhaps most famous for his participation in the shootout at the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, Arizona, John Henry "Doc" Holliday earned his bad reputation well before that famous feud. Born in Georgia, Holliday was raised in the tradition of the southern gentleman. He earned his nickname when he graduated from the Pennsylvania College of Dental Surgery in 1872. However, shortly after embarking on a respectable career as a dentist in Atlanta, he developed...

    October 26, 1881 The Earps shoot it out at the OK Corral in Tombstone, Arizona After years of feuding and mounting tensions, on this day in 1881, the “law and order” Earps and the “cowboy” Clanton-McLaurys engage in their world-famous shoot-out near the OK Corral in Tombstone, Arizona, leaving three men dead and three more wounded. Both sides in the conflict were ostensibly looking for revenge for what they perceived as malicious attacks and insults, but on a larger level the conflict revolved around which side would control the fate of Tombstone and Cochise County. That hot Arizona day, the...

    On This Day In History July 19, 1879: Doc Holliday kills for the first time Doc Holliday commits his first murder, killing a man for shooting up his New Mexico saloon. Despite his formidable reputation as a deadly gunslinger, Doc Holliday only engaged in eight shootouts during his life, and it has only been verified that he killed two men. Still, the smartly dressed ex-dentist from Atlanta had a remarkably fearless attitude toward death and danger, perhaps because he was slowly dying from tuberculosis. In 1879, Holliday settled in Las Vegas, New Mexico, where he opened a saloon with a...
