The loss of the use of a finger altered the direction of Vinnie Burke's career. A onetime violinist and guitarist, after his left pinky knuckle was crushed while working at a munitions factory, he was forced to shift to double bass. In the second half of the 1940s he played with Joe Mooney, Tony Scott, and Cy Coleman. Later, he played with the Sauter-Finegan Orchestra, Tal Farlow, Marian McPartland, Don Elliott, Vic Dickenson, Gil Mellé, Bucky Pizzarelli, John Mehegan, Chris Connor, Eddie Costa, and Bobby Hackett. He led his own band in 1956 and led small combos into the 1980s.

22 de abril de 1836, La Batalla de San Jacinto. En veinte minutos de intensa masacre, las tropas de Texas aniquilaron a un gran número de soldados del ejército mexicano claramente gritando, "¡Recuerden el Álamo! ". Estos soldados se mostraron implacables sin dejar ningún sobreviviente, incluso rematando a los heridos. Estamos entonces en el cambio de la independencia de Texas, debido a que la vanguardia mexicana ya no existe… Pero queda una pregunta: ¿qué es realmente lo que pasó en el Álamo para que los hombres hagan referencia a tal locura expresión de guerra?

He sees their presence as a threat to his Gulf Coast livelihood, shrimp fishing, especially after his boat is repossessed. Shang's ex-girlfriend Glory (Amy Madigan) refuses to buy into the townsfolk's racism and instead sticks with her Vietnamese hires, even though the xenophobic backlash is becoming increasingly violent.

Genre: Western

The Man From the Alamo manages to pack a few nuances and surprises in its traditional western plotline. During the siege at the Alamo, John Stroud (Glenn Ford) is chosen by lot to leave the fort and warn the families of the mission's defenders of the impending arrival of General Santa Ana. But when everyone around him is wiped out by the Mexicans, Stroud has no proof that he was ordered to leave his post, and is therefore branded a coward. He spends the rest of the film performing acts of conspicuous bravery to clear his name–and also tracks down the film's real villain, Jess Wade (Victor Jory), who robbed the Alamo victims of their possessions after the smoke cleared. Julie Adams, Chill Wills, Hugh O'Brien, Neville Brand, Arthur Space and future soap-opera star Jeanne Cooper round out the cast.
