TV's Wyatt Earp marries

Looks like this old gunslinger still has some bullets in his gun.

Hugh O'Brian, the 81-year-old star of the 1950s TV series The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp, was married on Sunday. It was his first walk down the aisle.

"This is my first, and most definitely, my last trip down the aisle," O'Brian said in a statement.

O'Brian and his ladyfriend of 18 years, schoolteacher Virginia Barber, exhibited a dark sense of humor by naming the nuptials "A Wedding To Die For" and holding it in Forest Lawn Memorial Park, a cemetery.

To up the bizarre, "only in LA" factor, the wedding was presided over by Crystal Cathedral maestro Reverend Robert Schuller. On hand to perform a song was Debbie Reynolds.

Legend ran from 1955 to 1961. After the show ended, O'Brian became a guest-star fixture on The Love Boat, Murder, She Wrote, Fantasy Island, and many other TV shows.

It takes a tough man like Hugh O'Brian to make "the leap" at his age. I'm happy for him and his relationship with Ms. Barber- I hope they spend the rest of their life together in perfect happiness!

Besides, who remembers him as "Wyatt Earp" these days, anyway?
