The Alamo (1960)

I just picked up the soundtrack on vinyl of this classic movie which I first saw as a small boy. Contains the Republic monologue which is a great piece of cheese but I love it
"Republic. I like the sound of the word. It means people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose. Some words give you a feeling. Republic is one of those words that makes me tight in the throat - the same tightness a man gets when his baby takes his first step or his first baby shaves and makes his first sound as a man. Some words can give you a feeling that makes your heart warm. Republic is one of those words. "

  1. The problem is that some modern viewers hear "Republi-CANS" when they hear John Wayne.
