WYATT EARP - THE REAL STORY OF THE LEGEND (WILD WEST HISTORY DOCUMENTARY) Wyatt Earp has been portrayed in countless movies and television shows by some of Hollywood's greatest actors, including Henry Fonda, Jimmy Stewart, and more recently, Kevin Costner, but these popular fictions often belie the complexities and flaws of a man whose life is a lens on politics, justice and economic opportunity in the American frontier. As a young man, Wyatt Earp was a caricature of the Western lawman. He gained notoriety as the legendary gunman in the shootout at the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, Arizona, but shortly after his death in 1929, distressed Americans down on their luck transformed Wyatt Earp into a folk hero, a central figure in the narrative of how the West was won. Celebrated as a man who took control of his own destiny, Wyatt Earp came to epitomize the town-taming marshal responsible for bringing the forces of law, order and civilization to the Wild West. Wyatt Earp's actual life story, though, was more complicated than the romantic legend. He spent his youth carousing, gambling, and visiting brothels - sometimes just one step ahead of the law. A wanderer and an opportunist, Earp was ever in pursuit of greater fortunes in the next boomtown. He spent most of his life roaming the West, supporting himself with police work, mining, gambling, saloon-keeping, and real estate deals. After the tragic death of his young wife, Earp fell in among prostitutes and gamblers and remained closely connected to this underworld even after becoming a lawman. Soon after settling in the burgeoning silver mining town of Tombstone, Arizona, Wyatt Earp and his brothers became involved in a feud with the local Cowboys which culminated in the notorious 1881 Gunfight at the O.K. Corral. Though it lasted less than a minute, this infamous gunfight blurred the boundaries of law and criminality, and became a symbol a chapter in the winning of the West. In revenge for his brother's murder Earp took the law into his own hands, killing at least three of the local Cowboys before finally leaving the territory of Arizona for good. In his later years, living in a small bungalow in Los Angeles, Wyatt Earp was haunted by his past, and fretted over his legacy. He died before he could witness his redemption as an enduring and admired hero in the American imagination.

Premieres 9pm, Friday 23 September on Freesat 156, Virgin 276 and Sky 534 This documentary casts a fresh eye over the life of one of the most famous figures in the history of the Wild West, asking whether his reputation is justified. As well as being the subject of many books, he has been portrayed by some of Hollywood’s greatest actors, including Henry Fonda, Burt Lancaster, Jimmy Stewart and Kevin Costner. He is now generally considered an American folk hero, but who was the real Wyatt Earp and how did he come to be at the OK Corral in Tombstone on October 26, 1881? Born in 1848, Earp was one of life’s chancers, always looking for the quick way to make money, regularly moving from one boom town to another and getting into trouble with the law on more than one occasion. While some of his professional life was spent as a lawman, his chequered career also included stints as a buffalo hunter, saloon owner, brothel keeper and boxing referee. After the gunfight at the OK Corral, he acquired widespread notoriety – indeed, murder charges were subsequently filed against him, although the case never went to trial. It was only after his death in 1929 that Earp’s public image took a turn for the better. The film features interviews with biographers and historians to present a different look at a central figure in the American narrative of how the West was won.

One of the most famous rivalries in Old West history is that of the Earp brothers and the "Cowboys". Viewers of the movies "Tombstone" or "Wyatt Earp" will know the basic sequence of events, from the alley behind the OK Corral shootout to the assassination of Morgan Earp, attack on Virgil Earp, and ultimately Wyatt's Vendetta Ride. The end of that ride culminated at the showdown between Wyatt Earp and Curly Bill Brocious. Alas, both movies really do a very poor job of representing how that showdown actually went down. Why does Hollywood do that, when the real story is just as interesting? We have no idea...so we went to the site of the event to show you what really happened!

Later in his life, Wyatt Earp settled in Los Angeles and was a frequent visitor to the sets of John Ford westerns where he happened to meet a young actor named John Wayne. From that moment on Wayne's portrayal cowboys was rooted in the personality and mannerisms of the western legend. Subscribe to American Heroes Channel: http://bit.ly/AHCSubscribe
