Costner almost had a career that ended before it really started. After very small roles in a number of big films such as Ron Howard’s “Night Shift” and the Jessica Lange vehicle “Frances” Costner then got what could have been a star-making role. However, his role as a suicide victim in flashback scenes for “The Big Chill” was cut by director Lawrence Kasdan. The same director wou would later make it up to Costner by casting him in a showy role in the film “Silverado.”
Mel Brooks’ Blazing Saddles is as timely today as it was in 1974 because it is about America’s past, present, and future.
In September 2017, a filmmaker and statesman for Hollywood days gone by named Mel Brooks gave a grim prognosis for our culture: We’d never make Blazing Saddles today. While he thinks some of his masterpieces of yore like Young Frankenstein could still exist in a modern context, Blazing Saddles would simply ruffle too many feathers.
“Never Blazing Saddles,” Brooks told BBC Radio 4, “because we have become stupidly politically correct, which is the death of comedy.” This is of course an oversimplification of the changing attitudes in our society, yet it rings with an unshakable truth. “They,” being Hollywood studios and the plethora of talent who frequent said distributors, would not touch Blazing Saddles in 2019. Which is a doggone shame since Blazing Saddles is just

It’s not the first time in movie history the story of Doc Holliday, the infamous dentist turned wild west gunslinger, has been told. There are at least fifteen films that have made the rounds since 1939 that focus on the story of Holliday who made his mark in history when he stood alongside Wyatt Earp in the famous gunfight at the O.K. Corral in 1881.
The most famous of those movies being the 1957 version, Gunfight at the O.K. Corral which saw Kirk Douglas play Holliday. Holliday was also subsequently played by Dennis Quaid in 1994 version,

Jeremy Renner plans to produce and star in a movie about the life of legendary gunslinger Doc Holliday, according to the Tracking Board.
The film will be based on two novels by Mary Doria Russell, Doc and Epitaph: A Novel Of The O.K. Corral, which document Holliday’s life from his days as a dentist to his stand with Wyatt Earp during the infamous shootout in Tombstone, Arizona.
Born in Georgia in 1851, John Henry 'Doc' Holliday graduated from the Pennsylvania College of Dental Surgery and started a practice in Atlanta, but was diagnosed with tuberculosis. Surmising that the climate of the American Southwest might be easier on him, he moved to Arizona where he became a gambler and struck up a friendship with Wyatt Earp.
Wyatt Earp has long fascinated filmmakers. Actors from Burt Lancaster and James Stewart to Kurt Russell and Kevin Costner have played the legendary gunfighter, but no portrayal is more definitive that Henry Fonda’s in My Darling Clementine.
John Ford’s first Western since his seminal Stagecoach, My Darling Clementine ranks among the director’s finest. Telling the story of the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, and the friendship between Earp and Doc Holliday, Ford renders this famous tale into a lyrical masterpiece, filmed in his beloved Monument Valley and full of iconic moments.

“I’ve always been fascinated with what motivates people’s transgressions and the scandalous journey into infamy,” said Fimmel, who is also executive producing, as well as writing the first episode. “I wanted to re-examine stories people think they know without the rose-colored glasses of Hollywood and let the audience decide for themselves if people like Wyatt Earp were sinners or victims of life circumstances.
