If you love the uncut version, then DON’T buy the new DVD
I love this movie as much as anyone, but the recently released DVD is inexplicably almost half an hour shorter than the version of this film that has been in release on video and laserdisc for years. Why, oh why MGM/UA did this, I don’t know, but I know I am not keeping my copy of it. I got worried when this new version didn’t have an overture…but I can live without that. However, when Richard Widmark’s first scene occurred and over half of it was missing, I could only groan.
Shame on you MGM/UA. This movie is more than a classic for a good many of us. You should release the cut that you have been putting out for years now, the one that is 3 hours, 10 mins.
One of the best of the best!!!!
John Wayne did an outstanding job on this film. It was overlooked at the Academy Awards and unjustifiably so. It was beautiful, costumes were outstanding and very true to type. The actors were wonderful and I believe should have been more acknowledged for the great job they did in protraying those truly brave men at the Alamo! I have this on DVD and watch it probably at least twice a year. The music, just to listen to the music, is an experience; beautiful and haunting. The horses were beautiful, the scenery was beautiful. Everything about this movie was beautiful. John Wayne, an American institution, a lover of this country and a true patriot deserved an academy award for directing this great film. I cant say enough great things about it. One of my favorites of all time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
