Factual error: The song that Davy Crockett plays on the violin is 'The Mockingbird Quick-Step,' written in 1855, several decades after the events of this movie (and later used by the 'Three Stooges' as a theme song.).
William Travis: One crowded hour of glorious life is worth an age without a name.
Antonio Lopez de Santa Ana: If we are not successful, our grandchildren and their grandchildren will beg for crumbs from the Americans.
David Crockett: We're gonna need a lot more men.
Question: Can anyone tell me if Santa Anna really ran away from Houston's forces as it shows in the movie? And was that battle really over in 18 minutes? (Not being an American or a Texan for that matter, I have very little knowledge about what happened at the Alamo, I'm just curious).
Question: What's the meaning of the Mexican war cry when they charge towards the Alamo?
Question: Did the real battle for the Alamo happen during the day or during the night?
