TOMBSTONE, ARIZ.» Val Kilmer rode through the streets of Tombstone in a horse-drawn wagon to the chants of “We love you, Val!” on Sat­ur­day as the ac­tor re­turned to the Old West town that was the set­ting of one of his most fa­mous roles.

Kilmer came to Tombstone for the “Doc Holli-days” event to cel­e­brate the life of gun­slinger Doc Hol­l­i­day, whom Kilmer played in the 1993 movie “Tombstone.” He also met with fans and was to at­tend a party to mark Hol­l­i­day’s birth­day on Mon­day.

Kilmer wore a cow­boy hat, sun­glasses and bright-green shoes as he was led through town in the 1880s coach.

“Ladies and gentle­men, might I please in­tro­duce one of the stars — if not the star, pe­riod — of our fa­vorite movie and the ob­ject of our in­au­gu­ral ‘Doc Holli-days,’ Val Kilmer,” the pub­lic ad­dress an­nouncer said as fans cheered and snapped pic­tures.
