Cowboy Movie Night

March 4th's Movie: Gunfight at the O.K. Corral (1957)

Greetings fellow cowpunchers and rounders. Can you believe the weather lately? The Farmer's Almanac says nothing about climate change but I like the warming. Turkeys and deer are beginning to show themselves around the ranch and it should be a mild spring which bodes well for the upcoming round up. A few of the boys have been out back limbering up the six guns and Winchesters. I spent the beautiful day gathering up all of the tumbleweeds that have blown up against the west side of the out buildings and in the fences. The next talkie showing in town this Wednesday will be "Shootout at the OK Corral." Great opportunity to relieve a case of cabin fever. Grab some grub and plan to attend. Wednesday's showing begins at 6:30 PM.

This 1957 classic starring Burt Lancaster, Kirk Douglas, Rhonda Flemming, Jo Van Fleet and John Ireland depicts the running feud between Doc Holiday, the Earp brothers and the Clanton-McLaury gang in Tombstone, Arizona. The feud reaches a climax at the end of Fremont Street at the OK Corral. The result is the legendary shootout on October 26, 1881. All hell breaks loose at 3:00 PM and only lasts 30 seconds, but of course, the movie makers draw it out a little longer. Tom and Frank McLaury are killed, along with Billy Clanton. Virgil Earp, Morgan Earp and Doc Holiday are wounded. Ike Clanton and Billy Clairborne run for the hills. Nominated for two Academy Awards, this film plays loose with history but is still considered one of the best westerns ever made.

Directed by John Sturgis.
Running time: 122 minutes

Grab a snack and a cowboy hat and join me and few of the boys at 6:30 PM Wednesday evening this week. Cowgirls and kids always welcome.
