You're My Huckleberry.
I keep switching what my favorite movie is.
But one of them is Tombstone.
Which for Generation X it is often considered the best western.
I'm not sure of that - I think choosing a best western movie is like choosing who is the best QB in NFL history.
It's a generational thing. You could make a case for Fort Apache. Or Outlaw Josey Wales. Or The Searchers.
But I have a longer history with Wyatt Earp.
In 8th Grade I had to do a biographical speech. My dad suggested Wyatt Earp because he liked the TV show growing up.
And me mentioned Earp was real. And once shot a guy in the back.
Which is true, but it was an ambush of ambush that is covered in Tombstone.
A decade or so later, I watched Tombstone for the first time.
I LOVED it.
When I needed to do a southern accent for a play - I just did Val Kilmer Doc Holliday.
My cowboy hat I picked because it looks like Wyatt wore.
But as I get older. I realize, I'm probably more like Virgil.
