Western : Movies set during the Alamo battle period

Movies set during the Alamo battle period

I've recently watched "Two for Texas" and have seen "The Man from the Alamo".

What other movies are there that revolve around the Alamo battle but are not necessarily about the Alamo battle?

Many thanks for any suggestions.

MAN OF CONQUEST (1939) -- Richard Dix portraying 'Sam Houston.' The San Jacinto battle two weeks after the Alamo is the action centerpiece.

THE MAN FROM THE ALAMO (1953) - During the war for Texas independence, one man (Glenn Ford) leaves the Alamo before the end (chosen by lot to help others' families) but is too late to accomplish his mission, and is branded a coward. Since he cannot now expose a gang of turncoats, he infiltrates them instead. Can he save a wagon train of refugees from Wade's (Victor Jory) Guerillas?

There's a really weird one from the late '70s called "Shoot the Sun Down" which stars Christopher Walken as "Mr. Rainbow" who is travelling across the Southwest in 1836 trying to reach The Alamo before it falls. He is anachronistically armed with a Colt Patterson revolver, which while patented in 1836 was likely not commercially available in February and March of that year when the Alamo Battle occurred. Also appearing are Margot Kidder and Geoffrey Lewis. I've only managed to watch about 20 minutes of it so far. It looks interesting, but I just wasn't into it at the time.

More recent epic, the alamo (2004), did not disappoint. I don't think many bothered to see it.
