Movie Info

John Sturges directed this sequel to his Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, which is more of a melancholy character study than an action Western. The Edward Anhalt screenplay (based on Douglas D. Martin's Tombstone's Epitaph) traces Wyatt Earp's (James Garner) moral decline from a lawman with high ideals to a mean-spirited vigilante bent on personal revenge. Ironically, Doc Holliday (Jason Robards), an admitted lawless gambler, reacts to Earp's vengeful turnabout by becoming the moral force that Earp

Depicts folk-hero Wyatt Earp's moral decline from upstanding lawman to someone so filled with hatred that he's bent on personal revenge.

Audience Reviews for Hour of the Gun

Other riveting, based on the story of showdown between the Earps and the Clanton gang s certainly as much a part of American mythology as I believe this since I last watched 1994's Wyatt Earp.
There are solid performances all around, beginning with James Garner who plays a hero with a badge, and is powerful in his intensity. And Jason Robards Jr. is quite good in his character, and does deliver a couple of colorful lines to Earp. The relationship and chemistry between the two men is unique. It's difficult to outline, but it's like these two were old souls who would go through hell with/for each other and never need to wonder or to argue it.

An unusually dour James Garner in another solid telling of the Wyatt Earp story, unusually opening with the gunfight at the OK Corral. Jason Robards is a nicely sardonic Doc Holliday, and it's solidly handled by Sturges (also responsible for The Magnificent Seven).
