So, this thread will be exclusively for screen captures, then?

All Santy Anna had to do was hold the women and children hostage and there would've been no battle.

Just try and produce a more realistic-looking scene using CGI. Here's to the stuntmen of the Alamo; good men, all.

In the beginning of the movie when the Mexican army arrives in San Antonio, they round up the citizens and even pull of the shirt from one of them. What was that all about? Why round up their fellow Mexicans? And what about that shirt? - Anyone?

They want to use the Mexican´s shirt as a flag of truce? I see! What about rounding up the citizens then? That´s not necessary to get hold of a white shirt or rag. If it´s to make the getting of the shirt dramatic, then it´s a bit too much, I think. After all, they´re just looking for a white piece of cloth.

I imagine that when an army secures a village, they initially consider everyone a potential enemy combatant. Maybe it's just me, but, go back and look at that scene. Aren't there a few Texans captured in that coralling of the townfolk? It looked that way to me.

By the way, back in the 1970's my brother Bruce worked with a guy who claimed that the Mexican man who gets his shirt torn off his back for a flag of truce was his Dad. I'll ask Bruce about it and see if he remembers any more.

Yep. And one of those Texans is none other than Jim Brewer -- who is also on the walls up at the Alamo!!!!!

Has anyone ever noticed that when the Chapel blows there are no bodies lying around...nothing...just an emply set being blown to heck! Talk about contiunity issues -- this is definitly one. I noticed this as a child the first time I saw the film/movie or whatever you guys are calling it now! It just seems to me that Wayne would have thought this one out a bit more clearly and had dead bodies where they had fallen and not make the grounds as clean as they were for this shot! Just my two cents! W>

Thanks Mo...one thing to notice, since the Wayneamo faces East, the sun is in the west and going down, so this had to have been shot in the afternoon! Well so much for that, I still love the picture, but it could have used some improvements! W>

I see! I never noticed that. I thought they were all Mexicans, because the Texans were already in the Alamo, but it seems like some of them was still in San Antonio then. I better watch that scene again... :oops:

My guess it they used all five Todd-AO cameras for this. It was a most important moment, and the plan was to shoot all expensive action scenes with multiple cameras. The producer question is, "Which is cheaper? Renting five cameras and hiring five camera crews or staging a particular scene five time?" And, since they had all five cameras and crews for all the action days, it seems a moot point.

...on a different subject, I'd like to try and set the perverbial record straight...in the raid for the cattle scene Travis,...does not call out for 'Corporal Pardee'..but if you listen he says 'COVER PARTY'...or 'Covering Party'...directing an obviously assigned group of defenders to provide cover fire for the raiding party coming back in.....actually had one individual tell me on the plaza during HHD's once that HE was 'Corporal Pardee'....then showed me a knife he claimed was used by Widmark, presented to Wayne then he aquired it.....inscription and all.....it takes all kinds..

All I did was a screen capture shortly before Bowie and his men rode into the frame. I always thought that it would make a great painting or framed print too. I just never got around to trying to blow it up some and frame it.

I see! I thought you had removed the riders from the pic somehow. - Yes, it really would make a great painting or framed print! It would also look nice on your computer desk...

I agree about this being a great shot for framing -- except that the composition is heavy to the left, prepared to accept the riders completing the picture when they enter on the right. I often set up the DVD and freeze frame this shot on my TV screen and leave it there for hours while I'm doing other things. Sort of like a painting on the wall. My favorite freezes are this one, the opening shot of Bexar as Houston's column rides in below the camera, the first battle aftermath shot from the southeast over the palisade, the Peter Ellenshaw matte paintings from Disney's Davy Crockett, and just about any wide Dean Semler angle from Alamo (04).

That´s right. The composition is not well balanced - if it was a painting, that is. If I wanted it for framing, I would cut off a bit off the right side (about where the plant is). There´s nothing much to look at anyway, except the beautiful nature, of course (maybe that´s an argument against cutting it off?).

Great pics of Wayne wearing his coonskin cap! Notice that it does´nt cover any part of his ears at all. Most other coonskin caps cover the upper part of the ears. Also, the coon head sits slightly lower than the lower edge of the cap. It´s the greatest looking coonskin cap I´ve ever seen!
