ATTENTION TEACHERS!!!!!!

On the redesigned official The Alamo movie WWW site is an Educator's Guide, downloadable in full color in PDF format.  This is fascinating stuff.  Know anyone who teaches upper middle school, junior high school or high school history or social studies?  Is the Alamo or 1830s American history part of the curriculum this year?  At least take a look.  This is impressive.  (At least it looks impressive to me.....whether it's useful or relevant in a classroom, that's for teachers to decide.)

Attention Disney WWW fan site fans:  How cool is this?  The official The Alamo movie WWW site has a links page, and on it are links to the historic shrine in Texas...as well as The Alamo movie fan site!  Disney (actually Touchstone Pictures) is pointing to a fan WWW site on one of it's movie's official WWW site!  Like I exclaimed before, how cool is that?

I guess that makes it an official unofficial website!

It's a good thing they moved up the Alamo release date! I went to see The Matrix Revolutions for the heck of it last Wednesday (wow that's a record for me! 2 movies within one month!  :laugh:  ) and they had the trailer for The Alamo playing. When it stated that the release date would be December 25, the audience I was with burst out laughing and one guy shrieked, "Are they INSANE?" :uhoh:

I was afraid for a while there that the release date just might cause too many sarcastic wisecracks with the press and public. Good thing they upped it.  :mickey:

The History Channel apparently is proceeding with plans to show a 2-hour documentary that details the Alamo battle and the making of "The Alamo" movie, even though the premiere was moved away from December 25, 2003 to April 2004 recently.

If you're interested, The History Channel has a site up about the 2-hour show that has clips from the documentary as well as from the film.  The 2-hour documentary will be hosted by Dennis Quaid, the actor who portrays Sam Houston in the movie.  There are educational resource links, too.

The documentary will air Tuesday, December 16, 2003 at 9 pm Eastern, 8 pm Central, 7 pm Mountain, 6 pm Pacific, lasts for 2-hours, and will be repeated on December 20th.  Check History Channel listings or your favorite source for cable TV/satellite listings for exact time and channel assignment for you and your viewing area.  You can also click on the History Channel page for them to send a reminder to you via E-mail to watch the show.  As for children, consider the subject matter and view the clips on the site to determine this show's suitability for every member of your family.

http://www.historychannel.com/alamo/

From what is on the History Channel WWW site about this documentary so far, if you are at all a history fan, a Western movie fan, if you want your notions about history and historic figures to be updated and challenged, if you are interested in the detail of research that took place to recreate the Alamo and 1830s San Antonio for the movie set, or in behind-the-scenes of movie making, check out this WWW site and then make a point of seeing this show.   It's a great site!  
:thumbsup:

For those of you into historical discussions on C-SPAN the Texas Book Fair (held last weekend in Austin TX) segment featuring authors of books about the Alamo will air Saturday afternoon November 15 at 6:30pm Eastern, 5:30pm Central, 4:30pm Mountain, 3:30pm Pacific times for 30-minutes.  Or check on C-SPAN and your cable/satellite TV listings for time and channel assignment for you and your area.  The movie and it's delay in premiereing, and the controversy of the historical record about the Alamo battle, and popular culture surrounding the Alamo, are all likely topics.

Regarding reports in United Kingdom newspapers recently that Disney was re-editting "The Alamo" about David Crockett being portrayed a coward for fleeing the Alamo siege:  Disney issued a statement (summarized in a thread on The Alamo Movie fan site, see earlier citations of the URL) denying it.  Disney is said, in that official statement, to be giving the film more time in post-production to make it a better less rushed movie.
