Looks like he's wearing elastic-sided boots, like the Beatle boots some of us used to wear
back when.

For "The Alamo (2004)" may of the extras wore similar ones because they sort of passed
as brogans---if you kept your pants legs covering the tops!

Yeah, he told me that as they rounded the water, the donkey kept veering toward it away from camera. Joan kept whispering to him out of the corner of her mouth, "Keep him straight!" :lol:

I have moved the Lobby Cards thread here from the "Research" section, as the cards pertain strictly to "The Alamo, 1960".

I think I saw those the last time I watched the movie and was surprised that at least one was there, because the first 1,000 times watching, I'd only noticed them where Crockett's Tennesseans were. I see something new every time I watch it. It took, I don't know how many years to see the dummies behind Big Boy Williams when the wall gets hit with a shell, and to see John Wayne step up that guys head as he's shouting "Half of you men, throw up a barricade here." Never noticed dead Travis move his hand to keep it from being stepped on until Rich told me.

Before the parley, a number of Bejarenos---and Texan defenders!---are corralled up in a bunch. Behind them, one Bejareno gentleman has his shirt torn off to be used as a flag of truce. My brother Bruce recalls how one of his co:workers at the LAC/USC Medical Center in Los Angeles mentioned how his father was the guy getting his shirt torn off. What a small Alamo world we live in. Too bad I did not follow up with my brother at the time to get more info from his co:worker. :|

I don't remember the "Salon de Baile" being on the Cantina sign!

It was there throughout the shoot but all was "whited out" several months later for John Ford's Two Rode Together.

This one has always been a puzzle to me. It looks as though the dragoon is carrying a lance, and yet when Pat Wayne gets "lanced" he ends up with a sword in his belly.
Notice how all the Mexican extras are just standing around waiting for their next cue? They really should be doing something. Bad directing by John Wayne.

Those extras are off-camera, watching the angle being filmed. Remember, the stills photographer cannot be where the movie camera is -- which was off to the right looking at a right angle to the action with the west wall in the background. That's no lance, Ned, that's a sword. It's got an arched blade and a hand-guard. ;) And Wayne was a bad director. :lol:

Look in the lower left-hand corner of that black and white photo, where the "TA-S-2C (or 26)" is, and there's a shadow of a man who looks like it could be the shadow of the photographer taking the picture. It could be anybody, and concluding who it is, might be like taking an ink blot test, but do you see the shadow I'm referring to? :?:
