Wyatt Earp is probably the cowboy that’s had the most movies about him. His famous “gunfight at the OK Corral” has been adapted by everyone from John Sturges to John Ford, and has been played by everyone from Kurt Russell to Randolph Scott – he’s even set to be portrayed by Harrison Ford AND Val Kilmer in two projects.
