Get ready now for the doc’s WORLD PREMIERE on February 22 at MoMA Doc Fortnight 2019 at The Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
Wyatt Earp, one of the most famous lawmen and gamblers of the Old West, is the inspiration behind decades of Hollywood Westerns. This documentary, written by director Plante along with Sam Green and Tim Kirk, highlights the influence of Earp’s legacy on cinema and our perception of the wild, wild West.
