The sun is low on the horizon and a dusty stranger saunters into town. Who is it? Why, it’s writer/director/actor Clint Eastwood with his trusty instinct for making Western films. Your favorite nonagenarian filmmaker spun a tale of a gold-mining town held in the iron grip of local criminals. With great one-liners, jingling spurs, and a supernatural element, you’re sure to enjoy this adventure.
Gather round the campfire to hear us tell the tale of the gunfight at the box office corral where Kevin Costner and Kurt Russell dueled to settle which of them could create the better Wyatt Earp film. Though Costner started with his hand on the script, it was the faster, wilier Russell who prevailed in the end, buying up all the cowboy gear in Hollywood and raking in the dough while Costner’s “Wyatt Earp” lay dead in the street.
Seriously, that’s exactly how it happened. The production of Tombstone is a tale for the ages and we’re here to tell it. Join us on the podcast. It’s a good one!
Thanks again to Brent for this fantastic commission, without which I never would have gotten around to watching this classic western.
Special thanks to the intrepid crew of Bald Move Commissioners who banded together to make this podcast happen; Keith Alejandro, Jen, Alex M, Matt DeRemer, Stephen, mydeardeadly, Andy G, Jefferson B, cocoa2mc, Gary Turco, Jasmyn P, Andrew K, Conner B, Martin K, and Geoffrey Bowser. Possibly the deepest commissioned roster we’ve had so far. And they had us review one of the greatest of the Coen Brothers productions, 2007’s No Country for Old Men.
