    Ferris Bueller's Day Off is still a classic, not in my top 10, but probably in my top 25.

    If it's going to 11, number 11 should be This is Spinal Tap.

    This reminded me: The Long Riders.

    Though I do like Kurt Russell, I would have to watch them again to get a good idea who did it better.

    I use movie lines a great deal as replacements for the default Windows sounds... for the "Exclamation", it's Belushi in Animal House, hollerin' "Holy S***!!!"... it used to be Jerry Lee Lewis, singing "goodness gracious, Great Balls of Fire"...

    When I have new mail, John Cleese pops up from one of the Monty Python bits; you hear an arrow thwacking into a tree, and Cleese says "Message for you, sir"...

    I've already mentioned how I used the great line from Cool Hand Luke, but sadly, I just don't have a use for it now that I'm off dialup... one of the error dialogues is set to the line from Braveheart, "the good Lord tells me he can get me out of this mess, but he's pretty sure you're fooked"... yet another is Redford and Newman from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, the scene where they jump off the cliff-- "ohhhhh, SHIIIIIIII"... well, you get the idea...

    And not that this is particularly relevant, but my Windows Start is "Texas Fight", as played by the UT marching band, my Exit Windows is "The Eyes of Texas"...

    Got all my icons personalized too, mostly sports logos-- Cowboys and Horns and Orioles, oh my... LOL...

    My computer is a reflection of me, I think... had a lot of fun getting it that way, early on I must have downloaded 500 different wav files, lines from movies, brief clips from songs... collected desktop themes, went into their folders and saved the icons and wav files I liked to folders I designated, trashed the rest... downloaded all sorts of screensavers, discarded three quarters of them after living with them briefly...

    If I'm gonna spend that much time sittin' in front of the bleepin' thing, might as well fix it up, right?? :D

    As an old west quasi historian I have a lot of opinions on westerns that portray actual events. Earp was a shameless self promoter and his version of the events of OK Corral is the only known version to the majority of the world. Earp literally took this story to Hollywood himself trying to sell it.

    I won't tell you which one to like better or bore you with some of the details that the popular storyline avoid, or even the eventual fate of Ike Clanton. I've studied all of it. I even know the great great nephew of Wyatt Earp, whose name is Wyatt Earp. No joke, he is a stuntman/gunfighter for the Arizona Gunfighters who do gunfight shows all over this state. Some of them appeared in a documentary I wrote and I get in to all of their shows for free. They do the popular version in their shows.

    Long and short of this is, Wyatt was no saint like the Henry Fonda version in "My Darling Clementine" which is a great movie. Nor were his brothers or Doc. Were they more law abiding than the Clantons, et al? Probably. Those 2 movies come closer to the true story than almost 100 years of Earp's version. Therefore I like them both.

    I agree with you that I like Costner better as Earp than Russell. Kilmer, for me, was Doc. I think he aced the part. Both stole the show in their movies in my opinion.

    Interesting post Hos...

    Isn't there some question about which group actually fired first? I mean the casualty list was pretty one-sided... it seems that either the Earps shot first or the Clanton group was composed of guys that couldn't hit the broad-side of a barn.

    One of my favorite versions was a sorta "documentary" type 1-hour show that if I recall was done in the late 70's. It almost had a "You were there" feel to it. The action parts were done in black & white and had the picture quality of an old silent movie. It really struck me at the time.
