Corrected entry: In one scene when Wyatt Earp is crying out in the middle of town and it's raining, around Wyatt, the street is soaked and puddled with pouring rain, a few feet further up the street is clearly still hard-packed dirt where the sprinklers stop - you can even see exactly where the "rain" ends.
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie, when The Cowboys kill the bride and groom and groomsmen, they shoot and kill all of the groomsmen. If you look closely at one who has been shot at least twice, (he starts out on his side then gets kicked on to his back by one of the other actors a few seconds later) you can see him breathing.
Corrected entry: After Doc stabs Ed Bailey and he and Kate are exiting the saloon, he is holding his cigarette in his left hand down by his hip when he is moving through the doorway. Yet when the scene cuts to him stepping onto the boardwalk, he has the cigarette to his lips in his right hand.MovieFan612
Corrected entry: In the scene where the Earps are playing pool and the mayor is trying to get them involved, Virgil is wearing a sidearm. The following scene when he exits the billiard hall and cowboys are shooting up the street, he reaches to his hip for his gun but it's not there.
Corrected entry: After Morgan is killed, the Earps leave Tombstone with Wyatt driving a flat wagon carrying Morgan's body and Virgil driving the covered wagon with the women. In the next scene, as they cross the prairie headed for the train station, only the covered wagon appears with a man (most likely Wyatt) riding a black horse in front of it. The other wagon is nowhere to be seen.
Corrected entry: During the gunfight at the O.K. Corral, Ike Clanton is seen running into a store, grabbing the sheriff's gun, and then breaking the window and window frame so he could shoot at the Earp's and Doc Holliday. When the camera angle changes you see the window frame intact and when the camera angle changes again the frame is broken again.
Corrected entry: During the scene in which the boy pretends to shoot the Earps and Doc Holiday as they walk to the OK Corral, the first camera shot shows that the ground is completely dry. The shot changes and there is a large puddle of water close to Wyatt.
Corrected entry: In the scene toward the end of the shootout at the O. K. Corral, Texas Jack and Creek Johnson are shown walking over a large video or sound dish used by the crew as they back into the street. Wyatt then joins Doc to walk away.
Corrected entry: During the end credits, we are shown the Earps and Holliday walking down the streets of Tombstone. They are all wearing coats in the long shot, but in the first close-up of Virgil his coat is missing. You can see the tip of his shoulder and he is wearing just a white shirt and a vest.Twotall
Corrected entry: In the scene where Virgil Earp hits Ike Clanton on the head with his pistol (following Ike Clanton accusing Doc Holliday of cheating), Ike gets his guns from the barkeep. But earlier in the film when the brothers first become lawmen, they make the rule that no one can carry guns in town. They are supposed to turn their guns over to the marshal upon entering town, not the barkeep.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Curly Bill is outside shooting in the air, marshal Fred White goes outside to try to disarm him. Immediately after Curly Bill shoots Fred White, the wire triggering the blood to spurt out of his shirt is quite obvious coming out the lower portion of his left leg (you can see the wire and the pant leg stand out from his body).
Corrected entry: The movie shows Frank McLaury being the last one killed during the gunfight. Actually, Billy Clanton was the last one to die. After Frank was killed, Billy got off his last shot, the one that caught Morgan in the shoulder.
Corrected entry: During the gunfight in the lot behind the OK Corral, Tom McLaury is firing a six shooter at Doc just before Doc fires his shotgun in the air to scare Tom's horse away. The mistake is that Tom McLaury wasn't armed during the actual gunfight. He was shot by Doc while he was reaching for the rifle he had stored in his saddle.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Ringo (Michael Beihn) and Doc Holliday (Val Kilmer) are insulting each other at the casino. We see a shot of Wyatt's right hand under the card table reaching for a gun conveniently hidden ready to shoot Ringo in the balls. In the next shot we see Wyatt still has his right hand as well as his left on the table holding cards.
Corrected entry: When the Earps arrive in Tombstone, they are greeted by Sheriff Johnny Behan. The actual date of Wyatt's arrival is December 1, 1879. Johnny Behan didn't move to Tombstone until September of 1880 and wasn't elected Sheriff until the latter part of 1880 or early part of 1881.
Corrected entry: Doc has 2 pistols. He alternates rapid firing with standard gunslinging. Although he never reloads, he has one shell for the last guy.
Corrected entry: At the very beginning of the OK Corral gunfight when the Cowboys are positioning themselves as the Earps and Holliday approach, they show one additional Cowboy to Billy Claiborne's right who is not shown again for the remainder of the gunfight.
Corrected entry: At the end of the gunfight, Wyatt and Doc walk away as the only two men not injured during the fight. In reality, Wyatt was the only person not shot during the fight. Doc was shot in the hip by Frank McLaury just before he was killed.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Wyatt is dealing Faro, the bettor says "If you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen." This phrase was coined by Harry Truman in the 1940s.(http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/get-out-of-the-kitchen.html).
Corrected entry: When the stagecoach containing Josie pulls away, its door obviously wasn't latched properly. Look closely and you can see the door swing wide open as the stagecoach leaves.
Corrected entry: During the fight at the OK corral, Doc Holiday has a double barrel shotgun but he shoots it three times, once in the air to spook the horse, once again to shoot the guy behind the horse, then the scene changes and he shoots another guy with the same gun without reloading.
Corrected entry: When Morgan dies, Wyatt's hands are clearly covered with blood, but when he lays his hand on Morgan's forehead no blood is shown on it. Then when he is outside in the rain and wipes his hands on his shirt it leaves streaks of red.
Corrected entry: Early In the movie, the "Cowboys" catch the Mexican Police coming out of a wedding for a gun fight. Ringo stands on a fountain that is bubbling water five feet in the air on a recirculating pump, and is fully sef contained. Not exactly an easy thing to do back in the 1800's with no pumps or electricity.
Corrected entry: When the Cowboys interrupt the after-wedding party at the beginning, Curly Bill is seen walking and beside him, lying on the ground, is a dead man. He's breathing.
Corrected entry: After the shootout at the Ok Corral (Seems to be within a day or two), Wyatt, Morgan, and Virgil are walking down a street and Virgil says "it's getting warmer, I guess spring is coming". The shootout took place on October 26, 1881. That would mean it was autumn and that winter was coming, not spring.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Curly Bill is playing Faro at Wyatt's table in the Oriental, there is a musician in the backround playing the piano. The song he is playing is "Marching Through Georgia" which deals with Sherman's army invading Georgia and basically burning it to the ground. To this day that topic is a sore spot for Georgians. During this scene, Doc Holliday is also in the room. He lived in Georgia when he was younger, and given his temper compounded with his state of intoxication during this scene, would have killed the musician without hesitation, reguardless of the fact that the Earps were in the room.
Corrected entry: During the OK Corral scene, Doc fires 3 shots from a double barrel shot gun without reloading.
Corrected entry: When Doc Holliday wins at poker and the other player takes offense, he challenges Doc Holliday. Doc places both of his guns on the table along with all the chips and money. After he knifes the other player, Doc's girlfriend Kate starts clearing the table. The camera shows her then Doc and Kate walk away from the table with both guns back in Doc's holsters and the table is absolutely spotless.
