Wyatt Earp

Corrected entry: In the movie Virgil and Morgan Earp are shot the same evening. Actually, Virgil was shot about three months before Morgan.

Correction: It is artistic license to change historical facts in movies. This isn't a documentary, so the filmmakers can change real events to suit the movie's storyline.

Factual error: When Wyatt (Kevin Costner) becomes the sheriff/deputy/policeman of Wichita, Kansas, you can plainly see mountains in the background - there aren't any around there.

Nicholas Earp: Remember this, all of you. Nothing counts so much as blood. The rest are just strangers.
