Anyone with an extra $1100.00 dollars laying around could own this little keepsake.

Ha! Batjac's ONLY toy tie-in -- and a dumb one. No doubt left over from the Lone Ranger craze.

But LOOK! It has a picture of the chapel with THE CROSS! Reversed, yeah... but it's there!

By the way, I just checked. The set did not sell. Evidently no one wanted it for $1,100 even with free shipping. I would have bought if for $100, but no more than that.

I think it is rather ironic that publicity for The Alamo printed everything backwards. This stamp of the Alamo is completely mirror image, not just the cross location. Photos in the original (now classic) lobby souvenir book are printed backwards -- just so they balanced the page well. Publicity packet stills were printed backwards for no reason except carelessness. All this accompanying a film whose screenwriter-associate producer took commonly known facts and literally reversed them for the script. Mrs. Dickinson is Travis' cousin. Almeron is Travis' best friend -- not Bonham. Bonham is.... Duke's son. Fannin's men were massacred before the Alamo fell. Richard Boone, in the key promotional TV network piece, says the Battle of San Jacinto was on April 13 and "it was important for me to know this, because I play Sam Houston." :roll:

Never mind all that. The only real concern is, is the church in the right place?

Of interest…

These two framed documents were in John Wayne’s house for many years and were sold a couple of years ago by his
estate to raise money for the Cancer Foundation…The first is the certificate nominating “The Alamo” for an Oscar…

The second is a 'Texas' Certificate from 1960…Presented to John Wayne; from The Board of Directors of the Kinney
County Chamber of Commerce for "...selecting Kinney County, Texas as the location for the filming of the motion
picture The Alamo."

Alvin Hall was a Kinney County rancher. John Tobin, I believe, was the judge (not sure), but definitely a major player in Brackettville. Louis Hobbs you are already aware of. Mrs. Nash owned the dry goods story at that time. Frank Higgins was Happy's brother-in-law and in the movie as the flag raiser at the Alamo.

Just bought the one for $50. All I now need is for a translation although I know most in English word for word.

The other thing I have been putting off years is to get someone to professionally transfer my unused laser disc ( I have two. One used and one unused) to two DVD discs as one day the laser disc player will give up.

Anyone in the UK have done this

Regards
Mally

I transferred my Laser disc some time ago onto two DVDs. I connected the Laser player to a DVD recorder using scart leads.
The picture quality is slightly better than the VHS version but I cannot blow it up to full screen size as it has the black bars running down each side. Maybe your TV will allow you to expand to full width.
I am currently waiting to receive a DVD of the director's cut that was shown on the TCM channel in the USA -- at least I hope it is the director's cut ! It was recorded for me by a man who sells thousands of old movies and when I heard about the TCM showing I contacted him to see if he could copy it for me. It is on it's way now, so fingers crossed it is better than the VHS/ laser images.
When the copy comes from the States, I will report on the picture/sound quality -- we have heard some differing reports about them both.
I watched the official MGM DVD recently all the way through for the first time and although I loved the greatly improved visuals over VHS, I didn't feel that I had seen the actual film -- just an inferior edited version. I enjoyed it but it lacked the greatness of the complete version -- which is why I had never watched it on DVD until last month and always watch the director's cut video.
Finally I bought "Man of Conquest" on Blu Ray from the USA hoping it would be region free as it is an old film. It wasn't and so I couldn't watch it, so I then bought a standard version which plays on my multi region DVD player and the picture quality is outstanding. I saw this film years ago at the National Film Theatre in London and they had to use a low power bulb in the projector as the film was so delicate it couldn't take the heat of a standard bulb -- and now we have a beautiful copy on DVD. Isn't technology wonderful sometimes -- pity they can't/won't restore The Alamo !

Hey, John, maybe the dimwits running MGM are the same low power bulbs used to screen Man Of Conquest at that National Film theater you were talking about.

Seriously....we all have our copies and show them on several forms and big screen TV's. However the only proper way to watch and ENJOY is in the ORIGINAL Todd-AO/stereo Director's cut FILM projected on a full size Movie theatre screen. I don't think this is ever gonna happen. So we watch what we have. Somethin' is better then nuthin'.
