One of my very favorites

I have many favorite movies but this one is in my top three.

Kurt Russell as Wyatt Earp, Val Kilmer  as Doc Holiday, Sam Elliot as Virgil Earp and Bill Paxton as Morgan Earp.

This movie has a huge cult following.  People from all over the world flock to the town of Tombstone, Arizona  just to relive the past, participate in activities and buy period clothing.

The low budget film is celebrating it's 20th year anniversary.  I swear it gets more popular every year.

We happen to be spending the rummer here.  We see people coming to this RV resort we are in and the first thing they want to do is hustle off to Tombstone.  

We have visited this town many times, the first time it was as if it never changed from the movies the streets were still dirt.  The about six years ago we came by and the town was a dump, crappy t-shirt shops and not much else.

In March we had the opportunity to come to this RV resort for the summer.  We wanted to go see friends in Colorado but I wasn't comfortable going back into the altitude for the summer.  So Tombstone is was.  Went into town the next day after our arrival and must say we were pleasantly surprised.  The town is clean, the t-shirt shops are necessary but few.  Plus there happens to be some lovely high end shops along with some tasty eateries.

So if you have never been come see the new and improved 
Tombstone, Arizona 

So Happy 20th Anniversary to you Tombstone, the movie.

Oh I forgot to tell you I think we could recite most of the lines of this movie. Needless to say like many this movie is not factual but quite entertaining.

So what are your three favorite movies?
