Raucous Tombstone, Arizona, the town too tough to die, once  boasted 14 gambling halls and 110 saloons during the 1880s. One of the most  famous saloons was owned by Big Nose Kate. Kate’s story began in Fort Griffin,  Texas, where she helped Doc Holiday escape jail. The two of them headed west,  surviving on Doc’s gambling winnings and Kate’s womanly charm.  Tombstone was a rough and rowdy mining town made famous by the exploits of the  Earp  Brothers. Hollywood has turned the renown gunfight, at O.K. Corral, into one of the  most best known tales of the west.
