Soon after the release, and seeing 'THE ALAMO' movie numerous times, I talked my folks into visiting the set. I was about 11 or 12. I was in awe at walking the same streets as John Wayne and how the movie was made. I have a photo of who I think is Johnny Rodriguez singing in the Cantina. Later in life, around age 25, My family visited friends is San Angelo. We made a special trip back to the set. I was rather disappointed as to the way it had not been kept up. I wish some one would restore the entire set and reopen for tourists. Now at age 65, I would make a special trip to revisit, probably my last vacation, and remember the way it was from my earlier trips.

i have just caught up with this biog of 'THE DUKE',some people seem to not like him,why i dont know,what ever his feelings or beliefs were,he was one of,if not the best actor of his genre to portray the solid (american)stallwart,'i wont have no wrong done to me,and i wont do any wrong'not the right saying from 'THE SHOOTIST',but close enough.the man was and is 'A LEGEND'.in the truest sense of the word.

Just finished watching the movie 'The Alamo'. From what I"ve learned, there are a few historical errors, but aren"t there always with cinematic efforts in the historical genre. What I"ve found is that people now a days, really HATE John Wayne and everything he stood for. What a shame! One must really HATE a dead man so much in order to say or write the things they do. I mean, even when I was a Marxist and an evolutionist, I didn"t hate anyone as much as some HATE John Wayne. The only actor I know of that draws as much vitriol and contempt is Charlton Heston. All Texans should 'REMEMBER THE ALAMO!'

I love this movie!Though riddled with errors it is the only movie that has been able to catch the Spirit of the Alamo!
