Wyatt Earp 1x53

The life of Wyatt Earp 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, spending his days drinking in saloons, gambling, visiting brothels, and gaining notoriety as the legendary gunman in the shootout at the OK 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 American narrative of how the West was won as a man who took control of his own destiny.
