The Alamo

The Alamo(2003) Extremely well-done History Channel four-hour video. The historical accuracy is admirable. This is an excellent antidote to the 1950’s Hollywood film in which John Wayne rewrote history and Hollywood’s 2004 The Alamo. One reviewer, referring to Sam Houston, summed up this turgid film with: “Houston, We Have a Problem.” For a Mexican perspective on events related to the Alamo, see part one of the PBS Home Video, U.S.-Mexican War 1846-1848.
