Gunfight at the O.K. Corral (1957) Directed by John Sturges. Jo Van Fleet as Kate Fisher and Kirk Douglas as Doc Holliday.
Doc: Now, Kate, Mr. Bailey came all the way from Fort Worth to see me on a gentlemen’s matter.
Kate: Gentlemen! Hm!
Doc: Wouldn’t be hospitable for me to leave town now, would it?
Kate: Don’t start that “gentlemen” business with me again.
Doc: It’s a pure case of ethics, but (chuckles) that’s something a person like you wouldn’t understand.
Kate: Why do you always have to treat me like I’m dirt? You ain’t no better’n me!
Doc: That’s debatable.
Kate: Oh, is it? You and that magnolia drippin’… Well, let me tell you something Doc Holliday: all them fancy clothes and that smart talk don’t make you no gentleman. You are dirt, just like me. And I’m tired of hearing about that Georgia plantation and all them lily-white friends of yours. They’re all gone now. They’re all gone!
Doc: Yes, they are… and here I am with you.
