About This Quiz

Justice comes for everyone!

If "Tombstone" taught you anything, it's that you can't escape the law. This classic American Western film follows the actions of Wyatt Earp as he struggles to enforce law and order by clashing with criminals in Tombstone, Arizona. He's joined by his brothers and another gunman named Doc Holliday. Together, they square off against a group of outlaws, a conflict that ends in bloodshed on both sides.

Most of the characters in the film were historical figures, including the Earp brothers, Doc Holliday and many members of the outlaw Cowboys. Their famous duel at the O.K. Corral occurred in 1881, resulting in the death of three Cowboys and further escalating the conflict. Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday are considered two of the greatest gunman from the Old West. Their form of justice has found its way into stories and media of all forms, as they are still seen as heroes who took the law into their own hands when there was no law to help them.
