Published

on


The Duke directs (with the uncredited help of his friend and mentor John Ford) flag-waving spectacular The Alamo about the courageous struggle by 182 American heroes to defend a small Catholic mission to the death and eventually win Texas. The restored, widescreen edition of Wayne’s epic is at original length, and includes the theatrical trailer. Academy Award Nominations: 7, including Best Picture; Best Song (“Green Leaves of Summer”).

The Alamo was John Wayne’s first film both in front of and behind the camera. Wayne produced the film with a budget of more than $15 million, and was assisted by John Ford, who influenced the direction of film’s exciting battle sequences.
