Doc: Directed by Frank Perry. With Stacy Keach, Faye Dunaway, Harris Yulin, Michael Witney. Doc Holliday, the cold-blooded sharp-shooter, reunites with his old friend, Marshall Wyatt Earp, to take down the Clanton gang in the dusty town of Tombstone, in Arizona.

“Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday did go to Tombstone to get rich, but this film badly represents the u0026quot;truthu0026quot;. This is typical of the time (Vietnam era) where law enforcement,traditions, and America were questioned and debunked whenever possible. Liberalism at itu0026#39;s finest.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis film may have been thought-provoking (although inaccurate) for itu0026#39;s time, but weu0026#39;ve grown up from those days, as we did from the overly-romaticized days that produced u0026quot;My Darling Clementineu0026quot; and u0026quot;Gunfight at the O.K. Corral. Those films were polar opposites of this one, and both were inaccurate. The best film of the Vietnam era on this subject was u0026quot;Hour of the Gunu0026quot; made 4 years prior to this one.Add that to u0026quot;Tombstoneu0026quot; and Kevin Costneru0026#39;s u0026quot;Wyatt Earpu0026quot; as perhaps the most close to accurate on this subject as Hollywood will come.”
