The habitual group of various characters find the starring Jim Bowie of
¨Bowie knife¨ fame (Sterling Hayden) who held command until stricken
with typhoid-pneumonia , Colonel William Barret Travis (Richard
Carlson) , commander of the small garrison of some 180 men and Davy
Crockett of Tenesse (Arthut Hunnicutt) who had arrived with a dozen
volunteers . They're guarding El Alamo against a Mexican militia
commanded by General Antonio Lopez De Santa Anna , President of Mexico
(J. Carroll Nash) . They're featured in more realistic characters than
subsequents films though predominates the melodrama . It's a
spectacular film hampered by a tiring screenplay and including Max
Steiner's excellent score with a title song by Gordon McRae . The film
is rightly based on historic events , these are the following :
On 23 February 1836 a army of 5000 entered San Antonio. When Santa Anna
demanded the surrender, William Travis answered with a cannon shot. So
began thirteen day siege that ended with the Mexicans storming the
fortress, the defenders, to a man, fought on until death .With bugles
sounding the ¨deguello¨(signifying no quarter to the defenders)
attacked the adobe walls from all four sides and broke through. Travis
was shot dead over his cannon. Crockett using his rifle as a club, fell
under a swarm of the enemy. Bowie fought to the last from his sickbead.
The Mexicans had won a Pyrrhic victory suffering more than 1500
casualties. Forty six days after the fall ,less than 800 Texans and
American volunteers led by General San Houston defeated Santa Anna and
his army of 1300 at San Jacinto. Shouting ¨Remember the Alamo¨
Houston's men completely routed the Mexicans in a matter of minutes,
killing 630 while losing only 8. Santa Anna was captured, and the
Republic of Texas was born.
