The first hour of "Wyatt Earp" traces the title character's character's difficult passage to manhood manhood After getting a bitter taste of the lawlessness of the West, a 20ish Wyatt decides to settle in Missouri with a young woman he has known since childhood. Wyatt assumes hell become a lawyer — and then perhaps a judge — just as his father and grandfather did. Wyatt and Urilla (Annabeth Gish) are anxiously awaiting the birth of their first child when tragedy strikes. Urilla comes down with typhoid fever and quickly dies. The sunny, affectionate tone of "Wyatt Earp" changes just as quickly as the title character's life does. Shattered by the senseless tragedy, Wyatt turns into a homeless drunk, wandering wandering the West. He appears likely to turn to a life of crime when he comes to the defense of a sheriff in a dangerous barroom situation, and before he knows it Wyatt is a Western law man.
