    We're now in Day 4 of the Alamo Siege. I took my Saturday morning to re-watch Wayne's "The Alamo"

    Despite being a bit long winded and the historical discrepancies, I love this movie and wish I could visit Alamo Village.

    "Republic. I like the sound of the word. Means that people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose. Some words give you a feeling. Republic is one of those words that makes me tight in the throat."

    Okay, finally go around to watching McLintock Blu-ray today and watched it with commentary from Michael Wayne, Andrew McLaglen, Micheal Pate, Maureen, Leonard Maltin, Frank Thompson and Stephanie Powers. I must say the picture was really great, and a lot better than the 10 year + DVD I had.

    While watching it Stephanie mentioned that Ford took over directing for a week. Is that confirmed? Andrew McLaglen states that's not true. So did John Ford visit the location? Maybe Stephanie was mis-remembering.

    I'm no expert by any means, but that's the first I've heard of it. Not sure why he would have... though it happened on other films, she could easily be mistaken.

    Just re-watched this great movie again. Anyone notice that the McLintock interior shares the color scheme with the inside of the Reata household in "Giant" ? Dark colored staircase, maroon walls, etc.

    At first I almost thought they had re-used parts of the set.
