This is a rare edition of the book THE ALAMO: A VISUAL CELEBRATION OF JOHN WAYNE'S CLASSIC MOVIE.
Written and designed by Cinema Retro magazine publishers Lee Pfeiffer
and Dave Worrall, the book recounts the dramatic and inspiring story of
John Wayne's obsession with making his 1960 film that recounted one of
the most famous battles in history. The production was a challenge from
day one, as Wayne was not only starring and producing, but also making
his directorial debut with one of the largest budgeted American movies
ever made. The problems Wayne encountered were seemingly insurmountable
and involved political battles, forces of nature and even a murder of a
cast member. The book covers all aspects of production including the
controversial Oscar campaign that became part of Hollywood lore.
Despite these obstacles, Wayne managed to emerge with one of the great
epics of American cinema.
The book was designed as a limited hardback print run of only 1500
copies. The book sold out very quickly, but we have been able to get a
very small number of unused copies which are available on a first-come,
first-serve basis. The book was never sold in retail chains or through
Each copy is individually numbered and has labels signed on the interior by both authors.
The book contains over 650 rare color & b&w photos, many of
which have never been published before. There are entire sections
dedicated to international marketing campaigns and collectibles tied in
with the film. This is sure to be a valued collector's item in the
years to come.
If that special someone in your life loves epic movies, this will make the perfect holiday gift. (Coonskin cap not included!)
PRICE: $110 (includes free postage anywhere in the world)
