  • In this made-for-TV Western drama, Wyatt Earp (Hugh O'Brian) revisits the town of Tombstone, AZ
    as he recalls his adventures with gunfighters, cowboys, and fellow lawmen a quarter of a century
    after the shootout at the O.K. Corral made him a living legend.
    This unusual feature was built around clips from the once-popular TV series
    The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp, which ran from 1955 to 1961;
    the show's star, Hugh O'Brian, filmed new footage as Earp in 1994
    that was used to link together the material from the television series,
    which were presented as flashbacks. Bruce Boxleitner is second-billed
    among the actors in the new sequences; the recycled clips from the television episodes
    feature Harry Carey Jr., Bo Hopkins, and Don Meredith.

  • the tv western was ok,the film intercut with storys of the old tv series with the new scenes.why they didn't just make a film about earp back in tomstone like they did with gunsmoke,teturn to dodge.it would make more sence

  • I think the movie was done to "cash in" on the popularity of Tombstone, and Wyatt Earp (to a lesser degree). I didn't watch the original series, so I enjoyed it. As for Dandy Don, He was on a number of the old Police Story episodes, and I was more familiar with him from that, than football.

  • Yep, I used to see Don pop up in places I wouldn't expect him to be. I think out of all the football players, Merlin Olsen turned out to be the best actor. Who do yall like?
    Here is a site that shows and talks about 50 football players who became actors. The last one starts with a W....guess who, LOL?

    Outside of Duke, Ol' Burt Reynolds, hands down, was the biggest star of them all. But looks like Mark Harmon, Woody Strode, Fred Williamson, Ed O'Neil, Jim Brown, and Dean Cain carved out decent film/TV careers.

  • No mention on the list of Mike Henry (former Steelers and LA Rams player) who had a fairly successful career. He also worked with Duke a couple times, along with Burt!
