THE LIFE AND LEGEND OF WYATT EARP
DESILU/ ABC TELEVISION
Information From IMDb
Marshal Earp keeps the law, first in Kansas and later in Arizona,
using his over-sized pistols and a variety of sidekicks.
Most of the saga is based loosely on fact, with historical badguys and good guys,
ending up with the famous shootout at the O.K. corral.
