      The battle of the Alamo in Texas is one of the most well known events in American history. However, the facts of the battle are often portrayed differently. Though other accounts may be more factual, my favorite movie or TV version of the historical tale is The Alamo, directed by

      and starring the legendary John Wayne. Highly patriotic and the cowboy of all cowboys, Wayne chose to opt for the traditional telling of the Alamo. Since it’s not a documentary, I really don’t see anything wrong with that at all.

      Wayne stars as the famous Davy Crockett, portraying him with honor ...


      • and bravery, just as history prefers. Test of the cast is full of notables as well, including Richard Widmark, Laurence Harvey, and Frankie Avalon. Widmark is especially good as Jim Bowie.

        There’s a lot of action in The Alamo, as one could expect, but what this movie does best is to

        honor the motto that legend has passed down — Remember the Alamo. America always has, and even if the facts have been distorted a bit, that’s okay. The essence of the story is right on. The courage was still there.

        The final scene is heartwrenching, and it’s one I’ve never forgotten.
