Thread Name: BS: 'The Alamo' - superb movie!
Subject: RE: BS: 'The Alamo' - superb movie!
I started a thread earlier about the movie music, but basically the theme music is almost identical to the theme music for the movie Rob Roy (1995), same composer of course.
Crockett's big musical number is Listen to the Mockingbird, (published in 1855, the Alamo battle took place in 1836).
And the Mexicans play De Guello, probably the only accurate piece of music in the film.
I thought the movie was "OK", it wasn't bad, but I wouldn't tell my friends to go see it.
