I gave up and paid her. So, for three 11x14 prints of my favorite still, I have two backwards with O.K. color and one O.K. with baby poop color.


That´s great material for a short story, or for a Stand-Up comedy guy. :D

Interesting story. They had a good thing going and then they screwed it up - typical!

Same in the Brackettville grocery store. If I get it regularly, they stop handling it! :roll:


Same thing at my local supermarket. I´ve bought the same coffee brand for years and now all of a sudden they´ve stopped handling it. :x

While I have seen some colour transparencies, it's unusual to me to be seeing a black and white one. What were transparencies
used for, anyway?

A transparency is an oversized slide, sometimes 11 x 14. I had a colour one once of the Mexican army avalanching across hills and plains, but gave it as a gift. It would've displayed very nicely in a shadow box with back lighting. You will notice in the black and white one above how some parts of the picture are brighter than others. I believe that the person who photographed the transparency merely set it up in front of a lamp and then went "snap".

Transparencies were primarily used for press packets for major newspapers and magazines. The bigger the medium for photographing and reproducing the photo, the higher resolution for, say, a Life Magazine cover. 2x2 slides and 8x10 clossies need not apply. My Alamo press kit included tons of 8x10's and a dozen or so 4x5 transparencies. The 8x10 glossies would have been blown up from a 35mm. camera negative. The 4x5 transparency was photographed on a 4x5 negative. My kit also has a color transparency of the Reynold Brown painting that is maybe 4x12. All are color-shifting to the red end after 50 years.

Notice, the black and white photo above is backwards (see belt buckle and Duke's watch on the wrong wrist). This often happened when printing from a transparency with no indication of front/back. I had to make a Pennsylvania lab take three swings at the ball when printing the shot of the Mexicans storming over the barricade toward the Alamo chapel because they kept printing it backwards. They kept swearing that they were observing the emulsion position on the transparency; I kept insisting that I knew it was backwards BECAUSE I USED TO LIVE THERE!!!!! :roll:

Thanks, Ned and Rich! - Now I get it. Funny, I did´nt notice the reversed belt buckle and the watch on the wrong wrist.

Maybe it would be possible to reverse the pic back with a good photo editing program.

I wanted to play the trombone, but in 4th. grade all they had was a full-sized one and I couldn't reach so I took up the violin instead because a half-sized one was available but I quit after a year because they stuck me in a fifth grade orchestra that was ALL GIRL and only Martin Wynnick and I were the only boys and I was so shy that I screwed up all my parts and finally they said bye bye.................... (I still play the stereo.) :oops:

Classic Waynamo finale scene. Larry Grimsley heard from some vaquero* that this scene is considered as one of the top 50 movie endings of all time.

* I think it was Joan O'Brien at the 1998 Waynamo reunion in Alamo Village.

Well, perhaps, but I too have been saying that because our Alamo Village movie history guru from past years, Mike Bowlin, discovered that it was the result of some survey taken perhaps in the '80's. I don't recall Joan mentioning it, but I was working and wasn't around for everything that was said.

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:
