I like this statement that was made !
>>>There's been much speculation over the years as to just how much work Kurt Russell did behind the scenes of Tombstone after the first director was fired.
Having been questioned countless times about the circumstances behind the 1993 Western, John Henry "Doc" Holliday actor Val Kilmer decided it was time to lay all his cards on the table about his close friend — both on- and offscreen — who played Wyatt Earp.
In a lengthy blog entry, Kilmer made it plain and clear: "Kurt is solely responsible for Tombstone’s success, no question."
Russell admitted as much in a 2006 interview with True West magazine, when the actor said he made it clear to studio brass he did not want his name listed as director, but that he did help out behind the scenes quite a bit.br />
I've watched this movie, and I truly must say... I have really seen one powerful movie ! It was Amazingly directed !! Above all. I have always said, "A great classic western, becomes a classic when involving Historical Factors, as it happened -at that time."
[Kurt Russell , Sam Elliot, Val Kilmer, Bill Paxton, *and the others] ... I loved it !
