"Tombstone" - Mustache Sugar Cookies

For the inaugural Food 'n Film post I thought long and hard as to which movie to choose. It all came down to timing, and a few signs. I've always loved Westerns and I was thinking to start with one, while mulling it over I came across these really cool mustache cookie cutters and the light bulb went off. That's when I realized most people would see those cookie cutters and think ironic hipsters instead of what I saw...

Our four mustachioed heroes from 1993's "Tombstone" popped into my head and I giggled a little while humming the theme song under my breathe on my way to the checkout. Later when I was explaining my idea to my sister over the phone, I turned on the TV and there it was at my favorite scene no less! Definitely a sign!
The film is based on historical events in Tombstone, Arizona revolving western lawmen Wyatt Earp, his brothers Virgil and Morgan, and his friend John 'Doc' Holliday; and outlaws 'Curly Bill' Brocius, Ike Clanton, and Johnny Ringo. These events include the legendary Gunfight at the O.K. Corral and the Earp Vendetta Ride. It is an adrenaline fueled action packed story that has you rooting for the lawmen, but at the same time feeling their struggle for the want of a normal civilian life. The sense of camaraderie between friends and unrequited hatred from the 'Cowboys' on the other side is so very believable it sucks you in from the very beginning. The acting is wonderful, the timing and delivery really make an impression. The score is classic, and adds another dimension to the film and is on par with that of "The Magnificent Seven" or "High Noon." But nothing beats the dialogue, those one-liners are so cool and I've absolutely been guilty of quoting. 
I'll leave you with the gifs of my favorite scene, Johnny Ringo is showing off his gun skills to threaten Doc Holliday; throughly unimpressed Doc Holliday mimics him using a tin cup. Needless to say Ringo was utterly embarrassed.
