An enjoyable watch
on January 12, 2012
I bought this because Sam Elliott was in both features, but is only a guest appearance in Blue River so have not yet watched this.
Gone to Texas however gave me a wider understanding of Houston's life and career so will lead to wider reading and research. I was however distracted by poor make up, particularly beards and sideburns of the characters as these were easily identified as false in fact in some sideburns the stitching was visible at the edges.
Another pleasant surprise was Katherine Ross as an Alamo survivor, along with Travis's slave sent to warn Houston and his army of what would befall them should Santa Anna capture them.
