This illustrated companion to the Warner Bros. release 'Wyatt Earp', directed by Lawrence Kasdan, and starring Kevin Costner, Dennis Quaid and Gene Hackman, includes the complete, uncut screenplay and provides a fascinating look at the film's creation, straight from the mouths of the film-makers. The supplementary material offers first-hand insights into many aspects of the production. From an idea on a piece of paper to an extraordinary hundred-twenty-day shoot, from rehearsals to post-production, this book gives intimate views of the realities, obstacles, and triumphs of the process.

Kasdan and Costner present a running narrative on the ideas that inspired their film. The actors reflect on their roles, with regard to both the film's story and the historical and political context of the time depicted. The cinematographer and editor comment on the aesthetic issues of working in the Western genre. The production and costume designers detail their efforts to create historically accurate town settings and thousands of period-faithful costumes. Additionally, technicians and craftsmen offer their perspectives on various scenes and effects, from the complex art of gory wounds to the complications of stage coach driving.

With more than 150 stunning photographs, over 100 in full colour, this is a remarkable inside look at the making of this grand saga, the story of Wyatt Earp, the legendary lawman who made Tombstone, Arizona, a part of our lore.
