      Ft. Clark is where Duke and a lot of the cast stayed while filming, so that would make a nice side trip to anyone visiting AV. Plus the some of the river scenes were filmed there.

      Having been to Brackettville twice. These photos have great meaning.
      I have sat on the same cot as Richard Widmark and the room where Duke first talkes to Laurence Harvey. And in the basement of the church, which is on the ground floor in the back of the church. Thanks the the memorys.

      I envy you who enjoyed Alamo Village. I was stationed in San Antonio in 1971 and 1972 and while I visited the shrine many times, I didn't know anything about the village. I spent many a weekend idling around Fort Sam and now I'm kicking myself in the butt that I was so close and so uninformed.
      Maybe someday I can afford to go back.

      Last October I visited the film set at Bracketville on what was, up to now anyhow, the last day it was officially open to the public.

      I took a heap of photo's and video and have put them together mixed with clips of the film to give a sort of "then and now" perspective.

      I only intended to make it last for about 15 minutes or so but kinda got carried away somewhat and it ended up at about 40minutes long in the end !!

      I put the finished effort on Youtube and had to split it into 3 parts, if anyone is interested in having a look, here are the links.

      part 1

      part 2

      part 3

      Thanks for the kind comments guys, it was a dream come true to visit Bracketville and I could have walked around that place forever.
      It was the most amazing experience to just stand on the same spot where all those unforgettable scenes were filmed and take it all in, one day just wasn't long enough.
