"THE BUGLE SOUNDS... No Mercy! No Quarter! for the brave women and 180 gallant men!"


  • Director: Frank Lloyd
  • Genre: Western, Drama, Action & Adventure,
  • Studio: Republic Pictures
  • Subtitled | Duration: 130 Mins

Remember the Alamo? No, not John Wayne's mammoth epic, but this slightly earlier account, directed by veteran Frank Lloyd on what must have been Republic Studios' highest-ever budget. The tale is well told, with star Sterling Hayden an impressive Jim Bowie and veteran character actor Arthur Hunnicutt portraying a grizzled and probably accurate Davy Crockett. Richard Carlson as William Barrett Travis actually makes the classic line in the sand with his sword that is curiously missing from Wayne's otherwise definitive version, and there's a healthy air of historical accuracy all round. The end result is enjoyable, even if it's lacking in stature.
