The Life & Legend Of Wyatt Earp
In the US, there's a restaurant chain called Cracker Barrel (that my Charmer hadn't been to) where they have a pretty good racket, I mean, business, going on--you enter through their gift shop and while you wait to be seated in the restaurant you naturally begin browsing the merchandise. So, there we were and what catches my eye but The Life & Legend Of Wyatt Earp starring Hugh O’Brian, something I may not have grabbed if it wasn’t so readily available. I’m glad I did. It’s a three DVD disc set featuring fifteen episodes from the classic fifties show. It begins with Earp becoming a marshal and then follows him in a selection of episodes from each season leading up to the immortal Tombstone showdown. This was the perfect way for me to watch a show I enjoy but probably would never buy all six seasons. It also has a nifty interview with Mr. O’Brian on the last disc. Oh, and my wife who has never been to the Barrel enjoyed the dinner.
