Trailer for The Alamo.
In 1836 General Santa Anna and the Mexican army is sweeping across Texas. To be able to stop him, General Sam Houston needs time to get his main force into shape. To buy that time he orders Colonel William Travis to defend a small mission on the Mexicans' route at all costs. Travis' small troop is swelled by groups accompanying Jim Bowie and Davy Crockett, but as the situation becomes ever more desperate Travis makes it clear there will be no shame if they leave while they can.

The script of Mr. Majestyk was Elmore Leonard's attempt to concentrate on the plight of Chicano migrant workers, instead the film that hit screens was extensively reshaped into a standard Charles Bronson vehicle. Hoping to make a living as a watermelon farmer, Battle-weary Vietnam veteran Vince Majestyk (Bronson) settles down in rural Colorado. Despite his new-found pacifism, Majestyk can't seem to stay out of trouble, and he lands in jail, where he plots a breakout engineered by Mob boss Frank Renda (Al Lettieri). Majestyk finds himself the main target of the Mob after offering to bring in Renda in exchange for his own freedom. It is bad enough when the crooks begin roughing up Majestyk's field hands; but when they ruthlessly machine-gun his entire melon crop, they've gone to far. Teaming up with Chicano labor activist Nancy Chavez (Linda Cristal), Majestyk decides to track down the mobsters one by one and mete out retribution.
Charles Bronson stars as an ex-con and Vietnam vet whose efforts to run a straight business soon have him locking horns with both the law and the mafia in this explosive tale of backwoods revenge.
The first pairing of legendary Western director John Ford (six-time Oscar -winner whose credits include Stagecoach, The Searchers, and The Quiet Man) with star Jimmy Stewart, TWO RODE TOGETHER is a taut, suspenseful story of two lawmen who invade Comanche Indian territory to rescue the white captives of the tribe. As in all of his seven previous Westerns, Jimmy Stewart rode his lucky horse and wore his lucky, sweat-stained Stetson (against the wishes of Ford, who complained, "Now I've got starswith hat approval!"). But unlike earlier Westerns where the outcome was sure to be happy one (for the settlers, at lest), TWO RODE TOGETHER is a dramatic and unsentimental depiction of hostages confronted by the savagery of "civilized" society. Stewart stars as a U.S. Marshal assigned to trade gunsfor hostages with the fearsome Comanche. Cynical and corrupt, the character was a striking departure from Stewart's usual roles as a stalwart do-gooder. Paired with Richard Widmark, Stewart locates the hostages but argues against bringing them home, knowing they will be unable to readapt to settlerlife. But Widmark prevails, and the party's triumphant return results in tragedy. One of the first popular Westerns to recognize the dignity and value of Indian life, TWO RODE TOGETHER is a stirring action-drama from the undisputed master of the genre.
One of the first popular Westerns to recognize the dignity of Indian life, this stirring action drama was directed by John Ford and stars Jimmy Stewart as a cynical and corrupt U.S. Marshal.
In 1836, 187 Americans and Texicans stood against the attack of Santa Ana's 7,000-man army for more than 13 days. This epic film deals with how those men happened to be inside the mission--now a converted fort--in the small village of San Antonio, Texas, and how this led to the tragedy at The Alamo. The historical players at the fort include Davy Crockett (John Wayne--who also produced and directed the film with the uncredited assistance of John Ford), James Bowie (Richard Widmark), Sam Houston (Richard Boone) and Col. William Travis (Laurence Harvey). The film is historically faithful (as few films are) to the historical events. The final battle scene (attributed to John Ford) is a classic of its kind. The film's celebrated music is by Dimitri Tiomkin.
