The Alamo is John Wayne’s epic film directorial debut about the famous the Battle of the Alamo. Sam Houston is in charge of a Texican army looking for its independence from Mexico, and he entrusts Colonel William Travis in defending the Alamo against General Santa Anna’s larger, better equipped, and better trained army.
