Earp agrees to become marshal and establish order in Tombstone in this very romanticized version of the gunfight at the O.K. Corral (e.g., Doc is killed by Curley before the actual battle and Earp must do the job alone).

On March 23, 1938 Randoph Scott was carrying Joan Bennett during the filming of a mob scene, when an actor playing a soldier lost his balance and struck Bennett in the face with his bayonet, causing a cut that required her to go to the hospital. An item about it was carried in newspapers throughout the country, often close to another item about her sister Constance Bennett's libel suit against gossip columnist Jimmie Fidler. See more »
I don't know if this movie was based on a true story, but it is believable, in that it was quite likely that there were mixed loyalties after the Civil War; some wanted to continue the fight, and some that wanted to put it behind them. I've seen plenty of movies where the Confederates are portrayed as bitter sore losers. This is the first time I've seen a movie with the Rebs trying to abide by the new rules, while being persecuted at the same time. Quite believable.
