Facts about

The Alamo gates were filmed very quickly - one or two takes at most. However, the March through San Antonio was organized and roads were blocked off two blocks away once filming began. The actual scene that stopped filming was when a single shot rang out in the Alamo during the ending sequence of the film. This angered some locals, who claimed that the site is a shrine and that no gunfire had been fired there since the original battle.
Written by well-known American news anchor Jim Lehrer.
The Rome (Italy) location was chosen because Pamela Tiffin had already signed a movie deal for numerous films with an Italian production company once she had completed this film. Since production had been halted due to local protests about the film's plot, the only way to complete scenes requiring Tiffin's presence was to shoot them in Rome, where she would be shooting her other films. In addition, Jonathan Winters also had upcoming commitments with The Dean Martin Comedy Hour.
