Gunfight at the OK Corral british poster

A British poster for a 1970s re-release of John Sturges’ Gunfight at the O.K. Corral (1957), made for Paramount in its VistaVision format. The film marked the second of seven pairings of Kirk Douglas (here playing Doc Holliday) and Burt Lancaster (playing Wyatt Earp). Sturges followed with a quasi-sequel a decade later for United Artists – Hour of the Gun (1967) – with James Garner as Earp and Jason Robards as Holliday. Check out other Pics of the Day here.

The poster comes courtesy of Heritage Auctions, which currently has it up for bid for the next week.
