Tombstone

Doc Holliday (Val Kilmer) kills Johnny Ringo. Wyatt Earp (Kurt Russell) and friends continue to hunt down members of the Clanton gang and all those who are cowboys. Before dying, Doc tells Wyatt that there's no such thing as a "normal" life and that he should go hook up with that actress. Some time later, Mattie (Wyatt's wife) dies of an overdose. Virgil and his wife move to California where he becomes sheriff. Ike Clanton is killed some time later in a failed bank robbery attempt. Wyatt hooks up with the actress (Josephine) and they have "some adventures together, some good and some bad." Wyatt Earp dies in 1929.

Factual error: In the scene just before the fight at the O.K. Corral, Wyatt is talking to his brothers and Doc on the porch of the town marshal's office. There is an American flag flying behind him with 50 stars on it when in fact there were only 38 stars on the flag in 1881.

Trivia: Val Kilmer is widely believed to be the most historically accurate portrayal of Doc Holliday. He is the same height, same build, and uses phrases used by Doc Holliday (eg "I'm your huckleberry" and "You're a daisy if you do").

Suggested correction: But Hucleberry Finn appeared in Tom Sawyer in 1876 and was a bad influence on, or "made trouble' for Tom.

Not sure what this correction is trying to state, but "I'm you're Huckleberry" was slang in the late 1800's for "I'm your man" and didn't derive from Twain or Huck Finn. Twain uses the earlier slang meaning of huckleberry for Finn, meaning an inconsequential person, to establish Finn is a boy of lower extraction or degree than Tom Sawyer.
