Several people tried to help Wyatt Earp tell his life story, but nothing came of it.  That changed after his death in 1929. With the publication of Stuart Lake’s Wyatt Earp: Frontier Marshal in 1931, the bomb went off and the results were nuclear. Hundreds of books have since been published and some 40 movies have been made—so far—not counting the numerous TV shows, including Star Trek, that have dealt with Wyatt and the O.K. Corral.
