Synopsis by Mark Deming

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.
