What with Indians who never went anywhere near that part of Texas and were peaceable by 1836, Officers uniforms that appear to have come from a costume collection left over from a film set in the War Between The States .. complete with 1840 or 1860 Light Cavalry Sabres. Its many a year since I visited San Antonio .. but as I recall the countryside was relatively green and wooded .. not semi desert with huge rock outcrops and large mountains beyond. I couldn't even manage Dave's suggestion to just see it as a 'western melodrama' .. the drama values are just about on a level with the production values! I can see why it didn't go down well in Texas .. I'm equally amazed that the Production Company were not sued by the Mexican Government !!
