My dad was a huge John Wayne fan, so naturally I was too. But seeing John Wayne as Davey Crockett was just about overwhelming. Saw the real Alamo a year or so later for the first time and could not figure out what had happened to it--it had changed so much since the movie was filmed there! At any rate, I was hooked from that time on--still am 45 years later.

I probably didn't understand half of what was going on but it was the first time I had ever seen or heard of the Alamo story. I guess it was one of those rare instances when a buff was born not through Fess Parker, but through John Wayne. Since then, The Duke has become one of my favorite actors and many of my friends think it's weird. But I don't care...long live the Duke!...and the Alamo!

Kids, huh!? I'd had no way of knowing this, having never seen THE VIKINGS before...and not until my late teen years.
