Dennis Quaid would like a word.
One of the most underrated actors of his generation, he’s been knocking it out of the park for 45 years, while never nabbing a single Oscar nom.
Which is a freakin’ crime.
While The Right Stuff is his best pic, Quaid’s work as Doc Holliday in this leisurely three-hour-plus ramble through the Wild West stands tall.
He approaches the role differently than Val Kilmer did in Tombstone, but, hey, we can appreciate both performances.
Kevin Costner is this film’s lead, doing his usual stoic thing, but it’s Quaid, gaunt and dangerous, who steals the show.
