Thread Name: BS: 'The Alamo' - superb movie!
Subject: RE: BS: 'The Alamo' - superb movie!
A line from another great movie, one of those works of fiction which give a real light on the facts, is from 'The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence' a must-see if you want to understand Americans. A famous man is telling a roomful of reporters the true story of his early life, which is at odds with what the public knows. At the end of his tale, the main reporter says: "When presented with the legend AND the truth, print the legend."
I haven't seen the Alamo flick yet, would love to see it with a Texan who knows history, which might also be a legend.
