has anybody ever seen this 1957 (?) tv show? i have a 2 dvd set with thirteen episodes on it and the show is great. surprisingly the show titled "Gone to Texas" has nothing to do with the alamo. can anyone tell me the name of the alamo episode?
"I'll leave this rule for when I'm dead-- be always sure you're right, then go ahead."-David Crockett
I seem to recall in the Crockett episode, that Davy is portrayed as a pushy, loud-mouthed hick with shoulder length hair, buckskins and coonskin cap. And, unlike all other meetings between Bowie and Crockett that have been portrayed on film, this episode ends with Crockett saying something like, "If I never see you (Bowie) again, it will be too soon!" Following that remark, there is a shot of the Alamo profile lifted from MAN OF CONQUEST.
There's a pile of a WESTERNS DVD at the 99 Cent Store that contains one episode of the JIM BOWIE series(The Squatter), one of DEATH VALLEY DAYS and one of FURY. For the curious, the price is hard to beat. _________________
