How about we put him atop a surfboard with his Alamo gear on? That might get his attention. Wait a minute, he never
did really surfboard in them "Beach" movies. Rear projection!!!! He made a "REAL" movie with Wayne.

Another one of the Alamo family passes!

TED COLE...aka...Cole_blooded 8-)


Guerra played a cantina girl in 'The Alamo'

By Michele Gualano - Express-News
09/06/2010

Alma Angelina Reyes Guerra

BORN: June 14, 1940, in San Antonio

DIED: Sept. 3, 2010, in San Antonio

PRECEDED BY: Her husband, Arthur

SURVIVED BY: Sons, Arthur and Orlando; daughter, Alma Leticia Guerra- Gillette;
and five grandchildren

SERVICES: The family will receive guests from 5 to 7 p.m.
Tuesday at Porter Loring Mortuary North. Processional will begin at 9 a.m.
Wednesday at Porter Loring, followed by a 9:30 a.m. Mass at Holy Spirit Catholic
Church at 758 W. Ramsey.

The youngest of five children, Alma Reyes sought her family's attention through
entertainment. She had a knack for performing and spent much of her childhood
whirling through the house dancing and singing.
As a teen, she brought her love of skits to the stage at the Alameda Theater.
And it wasn't long before her natural talent and beauty caught the attention of
Hollywood casting agents. At 19, Reyes landed a part in the movie “The Alamo”
as a cantina girl.

Almost immediately, she formed a lasting friendship with actor John Wayne.
His admiration for her led to an introduction to his son, Michael. They dated
for a short time, until Reyes decided to marry the boy next door, Arthur Guerra.

Alma Guerra died Friday of complications from a heart condition. She was 70.

Though Guerra ended her acting career to focus on marriage and family, her
personality still held the traits of an actress.

“She was dramatic, theatrical and vivacious,” sister Elizabeth Flores said,
“and an excellent storyteller — especially stories about our family's history.”

Family was her top priority, and she graciously provided loved ones with gifts,
birthday phone calls and top-notch advice on everything from fashion to party
ideas.

Guerra hosted two of her children's weddings at her 10-acre Shavano Park
property. She oversaw every detail from the flower selections to the bride
and groom's entrance by way of horse-drawn carriages.

Lending her time to provide public relations work for her husband's company,
Super S Foods, was another arena that Guerra enjoyed.

“She stood by my father when he had nothing,” son Orlando said. “He was
able to become successful with her help.”

Together, Guerra and her husband traveled extensively, mostly throughout
Europe. But their quaint vacation home, which sits beside Lake LBJ, became
her favorite destination.

“She thought it was so beautiful there,” her sister said. “She always
recognized beauty in every little detail — in nature, people and art.”

In the early '80s, Guerra began art classes. Like acting, this also came
naturally. She mostly created landscapes, but her favorite was working with
paint on porcelain. She gave many works to family and friends.

After her husband's death in 1993, Guerra struggled for several years to cope
without him. The birth of her first granddaughter and devotion to family helped
alleviate the emptiness she felt.

“Something that always caught me by surprise was her wisdom,” son Arthur said.
“It was the type of wisdom that you would have to live to be 100 to have —
she was truly far beyond her time.”

Thanks Ted. I think she came to our 1998 Alamo reunion. I know Rosita Fernandez was there. I think they were at the same table.

Here now. We're supposed to be talking about one of the Cantina girls from THE ALAMO who just passed away. Very sad. And to think
she actually might have been coming to the gala next month. I wonder why Mo hasn't remarked about this yet? When a member of
THE ALAMO family passes away, it's a little bit of us dying too.

This is great reading keep them incoming....in the mean time I remember reading in the Amarillo Globe News that a Mexican gentleman was living here who had been an extra in the movie. I believe I'll try to look him up and ask him what his remembrances are.

In the scene when Juan Seguin, Silvero Seguin and a body guard ride into the Alamo compound, Silvero is played by Julian
Trevino and the body guard is played by Edmundo Trevino. Does anyone know if the two Trevino's are related?

That's Mundo! He had a role similar to his visual appearance in The Alamo some years before in Viva Zapata. I think that was his first movie, and I have no idea how they found him. Later, of course, in Two Rode Together, he had a wonderful dialogue scene with Jimmy Stewart in the opening sequence on the porch of the Tascosa Hotel. Ford knew a good character when he saw one.

In that, Mundo told sheriff Jimmy about "thee weedow Gomez, who ees weeth child again." When Jimmy asks what is so unusual about that, Mundo reminds him that her husband has been buried for over a year. Jimmy takes that all in and says, "Uh-huh. Wahll, ya just can't trust a man to stay where you put him."

I worked with Mundo in 1966 on a little 30-minute featurette made by Earl J. Miller, head of the Radio-TV-Film Department at the University of Texas. It was called Ay! That Pancho Villa and was about a little boy, his goat (Pancho Villa) and his grandfather (Mundo). Their house was one of the three jacales built for The Alamo between the town and the fort. For all his amazingly wonderful acting talent, Mundo was illiterate. His granddaughter would teach him his dialogue the night before, and he would deliver it flawlessly the next day. A wonderfully warm and passionate fellow, he was. Happy Shahan just adored him -- even brought him as special guest to Rotary.

Anyone out ther know who played Mr. Deninson. Not Mrs, Mr. He was the guy who said, "I'll just hollar down."
Also, was he the same one that Beekeeper snuck up on and said, "I lost the bet. I bet some of my friends that I could sneak up on you." Later, he tells Travis that ..."some of them even steped on me as they went by".

He was not a professional actor was he? Kinda a local character, right? Never mind, I just googled him and he was in a few movies and tv shows. So that answers my question.

Big John was not the fellow Beekeeper snuck up on. He did indeed play Dennison. That other guy was a different guy.

Big John was a San Antonio restauranteur -- owned Big John's Steak House on Austin Highway -- and befriended himself to John Wayne who, being always loyal to a friend, gave him a speaking part in every movie he wanted. He was the big fellow who fights Pat Wayne at the party in McLintock, the lousey actor Dean Martin pushes out of the way when he robs the bank in Bandolero! and the chicken who finally finds some cajones in front of a Mexican firing squad in The Undefeated. I worked with him on Bandolero! in 1967.
