An Incredible Scene
The moment where Doc Holliday shoots Johnny Ringo was also a favorite scene on the set of Tombstone. Sam Elliott looked back on the scene, remembering it as one of the best in the entire film. “That thing was just incredible,” he said in an interview. “They’re both so good, and you just know this moment is coming all the way through the film. You’re salivating by the time it does come.”
The scene may have been one that had fans reeling, but it did bring the whole film together and make for a fitting climactic scene for the movie.
