“Out of Texas’ bravest hour…came the man they called the coward.” As the titular character of this Technicolor Western, John Stroud (Glenn Ford) is chosen to leave the famed fort during its siege and warn the locals of Mexican General Santa Ana’s approach. But after the battle, when there are no survivors to vouch for him, Stroud is accused of desertion and must work to clear his name and bring those who’d exploited the massacre at the Alamo to justice. Costarring Julie Adams, Chill Wills, Hugh O’Brien and Jeanne Cooper.

Screening format: 35mm | Unfortunately Jeanne Cooper is unable to attend as previously announced.
