    • Re: (New Review) The Alamo Movies- Davy Crockett at the Fall of the Alamo (1926)

      ..

      Produced by Anthony J. Xydias, Hollywood's only Greek tycoon,
      this very low-budget retelling of the famous story was directed
      by the redoubtable Robert North Bradbury, whose young son,
      Bob Steele appeared in a bit part.
      Handsome juvenile lead Cullen Landis starred in the title role,
      with Kathryn McGuire (late of Buster Keaton comedies)
      as the fictive love interest, Joe Rickson as Colonel Travis,
      Robert Fleming as Jim Bowie, and Fletcher Norton as the villainous Santa Anna. Davy Crockett at the Fall of the Alamo
      was but one of three historical Westerns released by
      Xydias' Gower Gulch company, Sunset Productions.

      Well, I really like silent-movies. This one is very cool, or well, it has it's own charm, maybe people think it's impossible to get their hands on. but no. All you have to do is to 1. Live in the USA and buy the SPECIAL EDITION of "Heroes of the Alamo" "Davy Crockett at the fall at the Alamo is a special feature on that DVD, but only half of the movie approximately 35 min, this is because the rest of the film has been lost. That's a shame, but all the Alamo-material has survived and that is a relief. :) But then again. If you don't like silent-movies, then skip this one. OK? :)

      Cullen Landis plays Davy Crockett. He is OK in the role, I guess, I may have to regret this, but I guess it was easier to play a role on silent films, than in modern movies, but he is OK as I said.
