Nice cover. It says running time 203 min. - that´s 3 hours 23 min., but the movie is only about 3 hours 11 min., right?

Has anyone seen this one? It's probably just a bootleg of the laser disc version, but still...

I see that it said "DVD PAL." Is that a UK issue?

I found the image on Google. No story with it, though. Like I said, it's likely a bootleg.

Davy said that it is probably just a repackaging of the Hong Kong DVD which was lifted from the laser disc version. I have two
other versions of that one with two different covers.

Bootleg or not, it´s nice to know the long version is out there on DVD. It´ll be interesting to see if they´ll release a legit
version during this 50th anniversary year (which they should´ve done long ago).

A big tip-off that it's a bootleg is that, while it is in Pal format and labeled in English, it employs a Spanish poster for the cover.

I see! Would´nt it be called EL ALAMO in Spanish? Of course, it would be easy to remove the EL.

Looks like they did a poor job of it, too. Just splashed a bit of orange over the "EL".

Don't ask me, I'm to busy looking at Linda Cristals image with that torn dress. That sure wasn't in the movie.

Forget the cross! Wish Linda Cristal had worn an outfit like that!

I think it is rather laughable that one of the SPECIAL FEATURES features boasted about is
a COLLECTIBLE BOOKLET. :roll: Yeah, we only wish. Since when is a 4 page leaflet considered
a COLLECTIBLE BOOKLET?

Guys,
I have an old VHS tape of the Alamo from around 1986 with the bugler standing next to or outside the chapel blowing the horn. Palisade not quite up yet. Looks like just B4 Bowie and his men arrive. Wish I could show it to ya, but still trying to master the directions on how to post photos and such.

I think that is actually the first time it came out on VHS. I have the same one. Always like that image.

Me too. I love the picture. The video, on the other hand, was as disappointing as it was rewarding (being the first time) because it was Pan-and-Scan -- you could see an eye here, a nose there........ Just like showing only the top half of the Mona Lisa. For those who know me, you know "adapted for your television screen" has been a long-standing anger of mine, finally -- FINALLY -- corrected by DVD's and a more cinema-informed marketplace. :D
