I have heard for a number of years that Kurt Russell has a Director's Cut of Tombstone that may be released someday. Wouldn't it be great if Charlton Heston's character, Henry Hooker, had additional footage. It always seemed to me that there was more of a story to be told in the movie about Hooker than the brief scenes that are in the original film.

That would be very interesting to see, if such a cut does exist.

P.S. Welcome to the forums!

I haven't seen this film in years. I should find it, pull it out and watch it again some time. The thing I remember most vividly is the final confrontation between Michael Biehn and Val Kilmer (two actors who both deserved bigger, better careers than what they got, though in Kilmer's case it may be because he allegedly behaved badly on certain films).

I sure hope so. I just watched this again and his part was so small and more or less meaningless that just about anyone could have played it. It's not a part where I see the director saying "We've got to get Heston for this part, he's perfect for it!" It's a nice cameo and a welcomed one, I just wish we could have gotten more out of it than we ended up getting.

Good movie though. Very good. I think this is the second best western of the 1990's. Only Unforgiven tops it. Then again, I don't believe there were a lot of westerns made in the 90's :lol:

Were you not aware that Chuck was in it?

I do not remember exactly, is for Heston a secondary role and part but very different respect for example the part of him in True Lies where he emerges more

I've heard this film was very troubled behind the scenes and everyone had to sacrifice some screen time, meaning some scenes never got filmed due to external issues.
