Written by legendary columnist Pete Hamill and directed by the great Frank Perry (The Diary of a Mad Housewife), the stylish 1971 revisionist Western Doc stars Stacy Keach (The Long Riders) as the notorious gunslinging legend and Faye Dunaway (The Thomas Crown Affair) as Katie Elder.

When two-fisted gunslinger Doc Holliday rides into Tombstone, he’s ready and willing to help District Marshal Wyatt Earp (Harris Yulin, End of the Road) clean up the unruly town, just as they did in Dodge. But to Doc’s surprise, Earp has changed from a steely-eyed believer in law-and-order to a greedy opportunist who’ll do anything to be elected Tombstone’s sheriff. To ensure his victory, the unscrupulous Earp enlists Doc’s help in double-crossing the most vicious band of outlaws in the territory, the notorious Clanton Gang.

It’s a dangerous scheme that leads to the infamous showdown at the O.K. Corral, where a bloody slaughter transforms villains into heroes… and heroes into American legends.

Special features include an audio commentary by filmmaker and western aficionado Alex Cox.
