Season 3 episode 2: The O.K. Corral
Inaccurate documentary on the famous gunfight in Tombstone, Arizona on October 26, 1881. It seems by the third season the researchers became lazy and did not do their research or present an accurate account on certain subjects including this episode on the O.K. Corral gunfight. Watch the clip from the link below filmed in Mescal, Arizona and see misquotes and a blatant lie that Wyatt’s gun misfired and that’s why Ike Clanton was not shot.
