when i was in san antonio about 7 years ago, i saw this movie and it was great. everyone says that you should see the movie before going to the alamo. i tried but couldnt hold off. the movie was well made and it had a very nice sountrack from what i can remember. the guy who played crockett was very realistic but the one who played bowie was annoying and unrealistic. overall a terrific film.
The last time I saw Alamo, The Price Of Freedom was the first time that I saw Travis' Joe after the battle. In the aftermath scene, he is seen standing in the center of the plaza looking down kind of dejected, as Santa Anna passes by to go inspect Travis' corpse. APOF deserves at least a second viewing, if only just to see what you missed the last time.

Soldados make it over the north wall. That's me, near the base of the ladder with the fire beneath me. We really did get over that palisade fence as fast as we could and then leapt down into the darkness. I'm surprized that more of us were not hurt.
Those are great pics! They look so realistic! - So you´re the guy on the left with the rifle in his left hand? The two guys on the far right with their backs to the Photographer, are they cameramen or defenders?
Not as many as you might think. One guy going up a ladder got bayonetted in the butt. (Reenactors do not use props.) Another walked into a preset powder charge and got burned. Yet another lancer got heat stroke. Then, there were the usual bangs, bruises, sprains and blisters associated with any production of this magnitude.
The worst injury occurred during the blowing of the earth stuffed cowhide barricade at chapel doorway. There were two Texians behind the barricade and when the preset charges went off, one of the wires from the detonator flew up and caught one of the Texians in the mouth. The wire sliced open both his cheeks from ear to ear. He had to be airlifted out.
