A little dated maybe but then again at over 50 years old it's actually dated quite well. The ensemble cast is awesome, Burt Lancaster, Kirk Douglas Jo Van Fleet, Lyle Bettger, DeForest Kelley, Lee Van Cleef, Dennis Hopper, the list goes on. Kirk Douglas steals the show as Doc Holliday and really opened up the character for actors like Val Kilmer & Dennis Quaid who both have done a great job in the role although I'd love to see Cesar Romero's version in the 1939 film Frontier Marshal. It's a classic western that lives up to its 'classic' status, the music is annoying but apart from that it's ace.

Liked it better than Wyatt Earp. I think, I get them mixed up! Val Kilmer's Doc performance is brilliant!

I don't like Guns, a film about Man's lust for them didn't sound great to me but I do love a good Western. Anthony Mann's direction was impeccable, I don't care if James Stewart was a nasty man in real life, I'll quite happily watch any of his films and he's great in this genre. It a classic Western, with all that is good and bad about them, in all its glory. Rock Hudson as an evil Indian and Tony Curtis as a 'New York' cavalryman are unintentionally funny and wonderful moments. I know, it's easy to laugh years later and it's not very fair but that's not to say I didn't enjoy or appreciate. It's a great western.
