Two For Texas (1998)

Postby NefariousNed on Sat Jan 30, 2010 11:25 pm

I decided to re-watch TWO FOR TEXAS (1998) from the perspective of someone who knows absolutely nothing about Texas
history and, in doing so, found it to be an enjoyable "Western". Starring Kris Kristofferson, Scott Bairstow, Peter Coyote
and Tom Skerrett, the film takes in the Alamo aftermath and the battle of San Jacinto. Kristofferson andf Bairstow appear
as escapees from a Louisiana chain gang who travel to Texas to avoid pursuit by the chain gang boss. They meet up with a
captive Indian girl (Irene Bedard) experience adventures and young love along the way and finally end up getting swept
along in the Texas revolution. The battle of San Jacinto sequence itself gave me sort of a deja vu feeling. Kevin, were
you involved in this production? Why weren't others made privy to the fact that it was even being filmed? I would've surely
thrown my hat into the ring, if only for having the chance of possibly meeting up with the lovely Irene Bedard.

Yes, it´s a very enjoyable Western. Of course, everything in it may not be
historically correct, but that goes for most movies. Not even documentaries
are 100% historically correct.

All I did was to get them the copy image of the Alamo dag so they could do the front. The late Riley Flynn was their
historical advisor and the guy who hired the reenactors. He kept it a pretty closed set.

That bit of news shocks me, Kevin. I've always thought the most ironic thing about this movie is that they were going to construct
a new facade of the Alamo church and instead of even trying for authenticity, for once, they just replicated the Waynamo church
with its "Price of Freedom" raised ridgeline and all the many, many other inaccuracies of that set. And now you're telling me they
actually had the deguerrotype? That is just plain weird.

Yes Frank, they came in, watched Price of Freedom, looked at George's model, talked some details, and I gave them
a copy of the dag. A check came a couple of weeks later.

Both Jack Edmondson and Jeff Bearden were in "Two For Texas", as was Mike Waters. According to Jeff today, he and Mike Waters can be seen in the funeral pyre scene. As Jeff was laying there, he heard a voice from above say, "You guys look like hell!" Looking up, Jeff saw that it was Kris Kristofferson. "Yeah, I reckon we do", Jeff replied. Jeff says that when they lit the funeral pyre, he was a little too close for comfort and when the sole of his shoe began to smoulder, he became suddenly resurrected.

At San Jacinto, Jeff got to be in Sam Houston's cavalry, while Jack was with the infantry. "They had us running through sand, " Jack recalls. "After that, I specified that I would thereafter do all my scenes from horseback." "So, you were reenacting the battle of Sand Jacinto," I quipped.

I can't believe anybody who knows the Waynamo could look at that set and think it was the same facade. Pretty realistic Mrs. Dickinson though.
