Very enjoyable little films about the Alamo if you can survive the horrible large bright logo "the Alamo" in the corner of both films. This greatly ruins the viewing experience and is a despicable practice. That is why this only gets 3 stars. The Heroes of the Alamo print is a bit dark but is otherwise fine with no splices and is a Columbia Pictures print. The 36 surviving minutes of Davy Crockett At the Fall of the Alamo is a tinted print which looks pretty decent. If not for the logo issue, this would have been a very good release. What's the point of releasing films like this(especially the surviving footage), if it is going to be multilated like this.

I like old black and white movies the best. They just tell the story with no social message, drugs, vulgar language or etc.This was a simple version of the "Remember the Alamo".It also has a patriotic tinge to it which we are in desperate need of today. In fact yesterday was the 170th anniversery of that famous day.

Harry Fraser's "Heroes of the Alamo" is an enjoyable action western. Perhaps it is not strictly history, but it is a progressive take on the Alamo story that tells us more about the famous historic episode's background. Great to see Earle Hodgins in a starring role. He aquits himself well as the earnest and honest leader of the settlers Stephen Austin who respects Mexico's rights over Texas.

This was very old movie with very poor picture quality and sound. Would not recommend it to anyone unless you are hooked on Alamo movies.

No one will ever really know what took place at the Alamo. Rather than focusing on the three big names: Travis, Bowie and Crocket, this movie dwells more on the everyday farmer and rancher -- specifically Mr. and Mrs. Dickenson. Dickenson was one of the few men actually trained for war.

I showed this rating because the movie is very good and it gave you an insight on who the men were defending the Alamo. The film is black and white and it is very old but for the era it was made in it is a very good movie. I love history and this is an insight into history and I am from Texas,
