The unfortunate LeJean Ethridge (Mrs. Guy) who
was murdered by her jealous boyfiend during
production. I'm sure that John Farkis can
elaborate on the incident.

Thanks Ned. There has always been a great deal of confusion about the name of LaJean Ethridge. (Mrs. Guy). Actually, LeJean's full name was LaJean Guye Ethridge although she went by her stage name of LaJean Guye. 29 at the time of her murder, she was killed by her lover Chester Harvey Smith. Both individuals, along with a few others, were members of the Names-Townsend Players, an acting troupe, who at the time of the filming, were doing stage plays in Bandera.

Was´nt there something about Wayne not wanting to show up in the court and talk about the murder (although he did´nt know nothing), because it would be too expensive to close down the production while the court was in session, but then he went anyway?

You are right my friend. He said he didn't have anything to contribute to it. I've heard, but never really been able to confirm that he was notified of the incident while filming the "Flaca tree" sequence in Sabinal. Linda Cristal feels that this may be why he felt so distant in her scene under the tree. Wayne was also forced to take time out to go to the courthouse and identify Chester Smith. Interestingly, LaJean's mother indicated that Smith was one of the individuals who was always at LaJean's house in California and that they would rehearse their lines together whenever they had a play to perform.

Thanks a lot, Mustang! You´ve added some info I have´nt heard before - the bit about Linda Cristal thinking that may be why Wayne felt so distant in the tree scene!

The ill-fated LaJean Ethridge, murdered with a Bowie knife by a jealous boyfriend from the acting troupe they'd both been members of.
After serving something like 4 years, the guy was released.

LaJean's one and only scene, as Mrs. Guye, cut from the general release of THE ALAMO, can be seen in the Director's Cut of the film.

From what I know this occured during the filming, so probably Ft. Clark. I do know that Wayne had to give testiment at the trial and was offended because the D.A. kept referring to him as John Payne. And, Wayne would come back with that is: Wayne! The whole deal must have really cost Wayne and put a stamp of issues on the production for all involved. Rich might have much better insight on this then I do. But this is from what I have researched on this issue. W>

She was murdered on October 11, 1959 at a small house in the town of Spofford which is located about 9 miles south of Brackettville. She was living there at the time with her boyfriend Chester Harvey Smith and several other males. He was jealous because Wayne offered her a small part in his production which required her to live at Ft. Clark with the rest of the actors. He stabbed her as she was packing her belongings and she died in his arms. He was immediately arrested and held in the Del Rio jail. He plead guilty to murder charges and was sentanced to 30 years in prison. I don't know where he served his time. Possibly in San Antonio???

Not SA-no state prison there. Huntsville? Gainesville? There was no jury trial, because he plead guilty, and it was a closed hearing. If he was not paroled early, he would have been out in 1979.

There's something seriously wrong with a justice system that will kick the cowardly murderer of a woman loose after only 4, or so years and yet throw peope into the pokey for LIFE for merely stealing money.

Yes, he is out. Jim Brewer said one time that he visited with the local paster in Brackettville who mentioned to him that Smith spoke with the paster on his release.

I agree. It seems like it´s people with money who created the law ;) - That said, killing your wife or girlfriend always gets you a smaller sentence than killing a stranger, for some reason. We currently have a debate over here about it. Nobody can understand why one should have a "rebate" if the victim is one´s wife or girlfriend. It´s like the judicial system thinks that the victim somehow provoked their own killing to take place. I´m not saying that never happens, but....

Davy and Kevin, you're correct. Further research showed that it was Huntsville. Smith claimed that a mental blackout kept him from remembering what happened. The Prosecutor John Tobin stated that, "Show people are a breed of their own."

Absolutely, John!

Just decided to create this thread today to showcase two original news photos I received in
the mail yesterday.

It's singular that the murder weapon is described differently in the two clippings. ("butcher
knife", "hunting knife") I had originally heard it described as a "Bowie knife.

And here's kind of a rare find. A glamor head shot of La Jean Ethridge. We are used
to seeing her as the dowdy country woman in THE ALAMO. But she was an aspiring
actress hoping to make it in Hollywood and Mrs. Guye was just one of the roles she
accepted to do so.

Only Alamaniacs think "Bowie Knife" in the real world. The news media didn't (and don't) know what that means. ;)

Almost, Ron. Ethridge was a member of the Names-Townsend Players (a repertory group from California who were working locally) and was originally paid $20 a day. Wayne was so impressed with her acting he paid her $350 weekly and even applied for a Screen Actors Guild card on her behalf. Sadly, she was murdered before she could film any additional scenes.

Re: Murder Pall Over THE ALAMO Film Location

Postby MUSTANG on Mon Feb 23, 2015 9:34 pm

Here are a few answers to the last two questions. As we know, films are generally not shot in sequential sequence. Actors availability, interior vs. exterior sets, soundstage vs. locations, children, day vs. night and weather (just to name a few factors) all impact what scene is filmed when. This was the most difficult portion of my book to write as there were no longer any daily PA reports to refer to. (The PA reports would indicate what, where and who were involved in each day's shooting). Although the master shooting schedule was finalized in early August, Wayne began to deviate from it almost immediately. As a result, I had to use the master schedule augmented by interviews, newspaper articles and rare photos to determine what was filmed when. Although not 100% accurate, it seems reasonable.

Grant wrote LaJean's scene on September 15, 1959. By the way, her stage name, as indicated previously, was LaJean Guye, taken from her father's middle name. Hence, the Mrs. Guy. If you're referring to the writing of the letter scene, it was filmed at the Ft. Clark hangar soundstage. The Cantina tamale breakfast scene was filmed on September 15. The prelude to that sequence in which Crockett speaks in the street with Seguin and Flaca was filmed on September 19. The reading of the letter to the Tennesseans also occurred around that timeframe. Unfortunately, LaJean was murdered on October 11. It was said that Wayne and Cristal were at the Sabinal location when Duke was informed of LaJean's murder.

And, the four year sentence is incorrect. He was sentenced to 30 years in Huntsville prison. Smith copped a plea just before the official trial. According to Defense attorney Seaman, it was in order to "Save the state money and avoid damaging the reputation of a dead girl." In my opinion, there is much more to this story than what was reported. I go into some additional detail about this situation in my book but cannot share EVERYTHING as I wish to protect reputations and avoid lawsuits. LOL!

While I don't have the exact date, I would imagine it would have had to been filmed either between September 16 and 25, or between October 7 and 10. The reason I say this is that between September 26 and October 6, Wayne was filming night scenes in the village: The Cantina sequences, feather fight, table-top dance, Emil Sand confrontation, etc.

Hello all. New to the group.

I'm 99.9% certain the Chester Smith listed by IMDb is NOT the murderer, a totally different person.

He was very successful in the music business in California.

Mac, Who does the pronoun "He" refer to as being successful in the music business in California? Is "He" the Chester Smith that you're 99.9% sure is NOT the murderer, or is "He" the Chester Smith who IS the murderer?
