''Sunset'' is a 1988 film written and directed by Creator/BlakeEdwards, starring Creator/BruceWillis as legendary western actor Tom Mix and James Garner as legendary lawman Wyatt Earp. The story is based on Rod Amateau's novel ''Sunset'', which was loosely based on fact as Earp actually did serve as technical adviser for some early silent westerns.
