Wyatt Earp is a 1994 American biographical Western film directed, produced, and co- written by Lawrence Kasdan, with Dan Gordon. It stars Kevin Costner in the title role as the lawman of the same name, and features an ensemble cast that includes Gene Hackman, Mark Harmon, Michael Madsen, Bill Pullman, Dennis Quaid, Isabella Rossellini, Tom Sizemore, JoBeth Williams, Mare Winningham and Jim. Wyatt Berry Stapp Earp was born on March 19, 1848, the fourth child of Nicholas Porter Earp and his second wife, Virginia Ann Cooksey.
He was named after his father' s commanding officer in the Mexican– American War, Captain Wyatt Berry Stapp, of the 2nd Company Illinois Mounted Volunteers.
Some evidence supports Wyatt Earp' s birthplace as 406 South 3rd Street in Monmouth, Illinois, though. This is a GREAT interpretation of the Wyatt Earp legend, more historically accurate than some of my other favorites, such as Tombstone, but because of it' s more accurate account of the historic Wyatt Earp, it is one of my personal two favorite tellings of the story.
