KILMER JOINS FUN AT “DOC HOLLI-DAYS”
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.
