The Martyrs of the Alamo
Legendary director D.W. Griffith produced this silent 1915 saga that tells the story of the birth of the state of Texas framed against the desperate battle in 1836 at a crumbling Spanish mission in San Antonio -- The Alamo. Featuring a big budget with amazing special effects (for the time), large, historically convincing sets and, of course, the rousing last stand, this movie is a welcome addition to the ranks of Alamo films.
