"A diamond-hard, 'rough-hewn' masterpiece!" -Chicago Daily News

John Wayne produces, directs and stars in this "bigger than life ( Life Magazine) chronicle of one of the most remarkable events in American history. At the Alamo -- a crumbling adobe mission -- 185 exceptional men joined together in a sacred pact: they would stand firm against an army of 7,000 and willingly give their lives for freedom.

Filmed entirely in Texas, only a few miles from the site of the actual battle, The Alamo is a visually stunning and historically accurate celebration of courage and honor. Co-starring Richard Widmark, Laurence Harvey and Chill Wills, and garnering seven Oscar nominations, it is a "truly memorable movie spectacle" (Leonard Maltin).
