** The Cowboys in general are portrayed as an organized gang of vicious killers who are tearing the town apart and ruthlessly persecuting the heroic Earp family. In reality, the Cowboys were a lose association of cattle rustlers who primarily stole cattle in Mexico. They had a lot of local support and helped consolidate local resistance against northern industrialists. Their feud with the Earps, however, ''was'' quite bloody and they weren't above murdering the Earps and their supporters after the OK Corral gunfight. As in most movies, the real situation's much more GrayAndGreyMorality than its screen depiction.
