After all this Billy the Kid talk it got me wondering - What if the fellows in the Italian west attempted, on a grand scale, to tell the stories of the great figures in western history, like Wyatt Earp, Jesse James, etc. who would you have chosen? What would've been great locations for the famous spots?

Imagine the great cast that could've been put together for the Earps/Holiday & Clantons, even if they might not look a lot like them. Stefanelli-A Clanton, Nero-Wyatt Earp, Garko-Doc Holiday, Berger-Any other Earp, holy crap! Maybe even throw in Kinski for added lunacy. Imagine those faces in the famous gunfight with the direction of someone like Sollima.

It could have been interesting, yes, but then when you use historical figures you'll have to keep the story following reality, and you'll get slammed by the purists if you go too far off track.

Tombstone could use a "Deadwood" type HBO show since its a very complicated story (and actally probably been a better choice since Wild Bill gets killed off way to soon in Deadwood).
