Thread Name: BS: 'The Alamo' - superb movie!
Subject: RE: BS: 'The Alamo' - superb movie!
Our local newspaper had a review of this movie. The review was written by the son (now living in Texas and a real Texas history afficionado) of the regular reviewer. He gave it a rating of 7 out of 10. Too often, he said, it would not choose a story line with the legend or with the historic facts...just muddled along somewhere in the middle. He said it left out the famous line-in-the-sand by Travis. He liked the Travis and Bowie characters.
