LAST NIGHT AT THE ALAMO
1983, narrative / 2015, restoration
When overconfident slacker Cowboy (Sonny Carl Davis), workaday sad sack Claude (Louis Perryman) and a colorful slew of eccentric dreamers and down-and-outers learn that the Alamo, a beloved Houston dive, is about to be torn down, they all come together for one last night to tell alcohol-fueled tall tales at the run-down bar. As the drinks flow, Cowboy convinces his pals that they should band together and save the Alamo; unfortunately, he and his fellow patrons are more inclined to talk than act.
