WESTERN NON-FICTION—REMEMBER THE ALAMO

WESTERN NON-FICTION
REMEMBER THE ALAMO
The reference works shown below were invaluable in the preparation for the Six-Gun Justice Podcast episode—Remember the Alamo.
 
The Making of John Wayne’s The Alamo—Not Thinkin’...Just Remembering
by John Farkis is a massive
almost 1000 pages—incredibly detailed last word on the making of the movie. Hard to old in one hand, practically impossible to read from beginning to end, but amazing to dip into again and again to learn something new. A masterwork... There is also a companion work, Alamo Village: How a Texas Cattleman Brought Hollywood to the Old West, in which Farkis details the building of the Alamo set...
 
 
 
Compiled by Rosemary Sforza Calcagno, Hollywood Goes To The Alamo—A fully Illustrated history of Hollywood films related to the Alamo is a good quick reference guide to sixteen Alamo related films accompanied by posters and lobby cards from those films.
 
 
 
As always, Brian Garfield’s Western Films—A Complete Guide was again a great resource of curmudgeonly wit and insight from a master of the Western.
