    1. We just adopted a kitten which we named Huckleberry (Huck for short), and EVERYONE is asking “like I’ll be yer Huckleberry, in Tombstone?” as if we are the only people in the world who can’t quote this movie from memory. Or, frankly, as if we couldn’t have named the cat after the MANY more prominent Huckleberrys out there which aren’t a random quote from a 25 year old western.

      I guess I should finally see this movie, is what I’m saying.

  1. Glad you enjoyed it! It’s been one of my favorite movies since childhood.

    As lovely as the women’s costumes are, my favorite fashion item was Curly Bill’s kickass poker-themed boots. I want a pair but can never find them in my size.

  2. On the history side, I thought Wyatt Earp was a touch better, but costume-wise, you’re right. Just looked up images of Kate Elder; her nose wasn’t that big. She did get an early mention in the earlier movie, “The Sons of Katie Elder,” a John Wayne epic.

  3. My favorite Doc line, “Why Johnny Ringo, you look like somebody just walked over your grave.”.

    And, “Oh, Johnny, I’m sorry. I forgot you were there. You may go now.”

  4. I’ve requested it from my library for Dana Delaney’s Josie Marcus dress alone as I also don’t usually watch Westerns.

  5. I share your “meh” attitude toward westerns, but still watch them once in awhile. (My favorite is “Maverick.” I laugh so hard every single time I watch that, and then I lust super hard over that gorgeous blue gambling dress.)

    I haven’t seen this in a long, long time. Might have to get it from the library.

  6. I’m not a fan of the typical Western, but this one is just so damn good. The plot, writing, acting, casting, and costuming is top notch.
    Others I love: Broken Trail and Quigley Down Under (Tom Sellick with bonus Alan Rickman as the baddie!)

  7. Haven’t seen this one for about 20 years, but if I recall correctly, there was also Billy Zane looking exceedingly decorative.

    1. YES! In a movie full of great actors in great roles, he stands out despite very few scenes. Love when the Cowboys see him and declare, “Prettiest man I ever seen!”

  8. This is one of a handful of westerns that I can watch over and over again.
    Others are Once Upon a Time in The West, Shawshank Redemption, and of course The Godfather movies.

    1. Josie is an actress is she? Sounds like the writers decided to go with her official story. Well why not.
