The Alamo (1960)

About as historically accurate as Lord of the Rings, but who cares! Rather than going for the continuous melancholic inevitability approach of the 2004 remake, this John Wayne outing goes all guns blazing for the ‘heroic last stand’ approach. Yeah, ok, so everyone dies, but there’s the usual rousing speeches and soapboxing that hollywood movies from the sixties do so well. Honourable mentions also go to the wonderful friction and palpable dislike between Travis and Bowie.

ACENESS. 12/10.
