Subject: RE: BS: Remember the Alamo
Yes,I thought the 1960s film starring John Wayne and the lovely Linda,was,although very entertaining,probably complete hogwash !! I imagine that the realities were much less theatrical,and a lot tougher and more cruel (and the women less gorgeous !).
I didn't think much of Colonel Travis ( Laurence Harvey's ) sword---he was able to snap it in half over his knee just before being killed,so it couldn't have been very strong !!
