I initially wrote this on Wood 2007 with a 8 1/2" by 11" format and 12 font size. One day my publisher called and said the printer was worried as he could only print 1,200 pages max and I was pushing the limit. This surprised me in that I hadn't written anywhere near that amount of pages. He told me that in order to include all my pages they had to reduce the font size and when they did, it was unreadable. (No smart remarks!) Once they increased the font size, they expanded the number of pages. So, I had to eliminate a ton of stuff that I wanted in both the book and appendices. Sorry about that. But, hey!!! It will all be included and more in "Still Rememberin'..."


Arrgggghhh!!!! and I still have not read MY copy yet as my boss has it.

For all of you enthusiasts lining up at the Cincinnati exit, give some thought as to what you want to see. The entire collection will take more than one day! There are more than 15,000 photos. I have assembled the film in narrative order
with photographs. This includes all the scenes that were shot but never used...plus behind the scenes. Just this aspect of my collection takes two days...and lots of energy to go through. John never made it past one day. These photos are
75% BW, and 25% color. As Batjac shot more than 25,000 still photo negs/trannies, I am sorry to have so few to show you!

John Wayne and Aissa Wayne apparently after the grand finale scene, judging from Aissa's smudges.
So, just where was this taken?

Ned, Aissa photo. Could have been taken before the final scenes as she had make-up (soot) applied to her face. I think it was taken inside the chapel towards the rear.

Sorry, but that's a Life Magazine photo (I think it was Life -- could have also been a movie magazine) that had a caption something like "Director John Wayne showing leading lady Linda Cristal how to stretch for a scene."

Inbetween the scenes. Guy with the bayonet looks like he is having fun. Is that fake blood
on the bayonet, or has some of the paint just worn off?

"Your orders were to go down, Mr. Dennison, not holler down!"

I wonder why most of the Texans in Wayne's Alamo wore no coats, in spite of it being late winter? The one behind Mr. Dennison is dressed like a cowboy from Happy's
ranch crew.

Falling back after the "Main Frontal attack". Those casualties look rather casual, indeed.

Was that sand pit strictly for horse falls, or group falls in general?

Does anyone notice that pyrotechnics flash pot right, center of the photo behind one of the "casualties" that is looking back?

You've got pretty good eyes, Ned. It looks like a small moon crater. I remember one of the many battle scenes, filmed by multiple cameras so that it could be used more than once, had soldiers dressed like those guys fall down as a shell burst among them. I guess those are the guys, and that's where the shell exploded. So, that's how they did it! Cool! :lol:

Nope. That's Gobbler's Knob, west of our entrance gate. Pinto Mountain is off-scene to the right. The stills photographer can rarely shoot a still from the same position as the camera during a take and is usually taking a different angle of the same action. Pinto Mt. was in the background of the movie angle.

This might also be a non-shooting move "back to 1" after a take that Duke didn't like. If so, then the camera isn't rolling and all the extras were told to relax in their last positions. Very good eye on the explosion pot. I couldn't even see it after you mentioned it -- until I SAW it! It's hard to determine if the sand is just for horse falls, but my guess is that a thick layer of stunt sand was laid all along the outside of the Alamo in that direction for several hundred feet, and what we see is just the back edge of it. This would have made more sense rather than bringing a truckload of sand in, dumping it and smoothing it before every stunt. A good parallel of "how it's done" would be the filming of Rio Diablo on Front St. at the village. The sand was laid several days before shooting began and stretched from beyond our bank all the way to beyond the 2-story hotel where our Trading Post is. Then they shot stunt after stunt -- horse falls, saddle falls and individual people -- including my death scene. When the filming was over and the company was cleaning up after itself as per the contract, the question came up whether to remove the stunt sand. My point to Happy was that leaving it down would help our entertainers who had to perform four gunfights a day on that hard, rocky street. He agreed. What neither of us thought of was that there were 20 or 30 cats living at the village who immediately determined that it was one big field of kitty litter!!!!

I don't think so. I'm guessing this is a still photographer's angle. What is that on the cart with the letters RTHM? Does that say "URTHMAMA"?

Note the costume of the Texian with his back to the camera. Modern bluejeans and cowboy boots with spurs.
Oh, he has a powder horn. That makes him 1836.

Maybe he's a "wrangler". Maybe his character is supposed to be an ancestor of Levi Strauss. Levi, was still a young boy living in Germany, at the time of the Alamo battle. He might have had an uncle who came to Texas and fought at the Alamo. Though Levi Strauss patented his blue jeans decades later, Uncle Tex Strauss may have been the original denim jean maker. Then again, maybe not. :lol:
