I remember when I first met Kaj, I pronounced his name, "Cage", like the character in the TV series "Combat".

Hey Rick, actually Kaj was bemoaning the fact that he had just purchased a new camera, didn't know how to use it, and so over-exposed most of his photos. Said he was looking around down in the basement recently and found a box of all of his "reject" photos that hadn't made it into his 1973 photo album. But, after over 40 years, even "reject" photos suddenly hold some value, both historical and sentimental.

Only "Caje" was supposed to be a French-Canadian character in the "Combat" series.

I love slide film, but it's so unforgiving of exposure errors, unlike negative film. Still, thank goodness for Photoshop and other digital tweaking, where such errors can be corrected or at least toned down.

I think Caje was a Cajun from Louisiana who spoke French and came in handy as an interpreter for Sgt. Saunders.
"Checkmate King 2, this is White Rook, Over."
I watched that show every week. Lt. Hanley, Sgt. Saunders, Kirby, Caje, Littlejohn. When I became a Daddy, I used to hum the theme to Combat and keep time by bopping my baby boy on the butt or back until he'd burp and go to sleep.
I know, I'm off track. Now, I can't get that theme out of my head. :roll:

Alamo Village Indian Store. Two jacales can be see in the distance on the left, while the Alamo can be glimpsed beyond that tree.

This was immediately after "Bandolero!" was filmed, as all the signage is Al Sweeney's stuff from the movie. No Indian Store sign yet. And the jail has been newly whitewashed after plastering over all the bare adobe. Happy staged a bunch of photographs to take advantage of the new look of the place and made up numerous postcards and the fold-out.

Atop Parson's Hill with the Alamo set in that background below. 1974
(Wish I hadn't opted for that "satin" finish on the prints. All it served was to reduce the clarity of the photo.)

Man, I couldn't agree with you more. I ruined several sets of photos by accepting their woven surface crap. Didn't last long though. They wised up.

If that photo is from the same visit as your John Wayne Death photos, then it was definitely late 80's. The set revamps for the IMAX movie have been done, and that filmed in 1987.

Ramon Vasquez y Sanchez by the Waynamo chapel facade. Looks like a while back.
What movie, or living history event could this be?

Very cool news video of the March, 1986 Sesquicentennial living history weekend in Alamo Village. Be on
the lookout for Jerry Laing, Mike Waters, Charlie Morfin, Charlie Morfin Jr. Daniel Morfin, Jeff Bearden,
Alan Huffines, and who knows who else. It's interesting how they cut in clips from the 1976 reenactment
showing Mexican artillery firing on the fort.

Yes, I saw it the other night, but my internet connection has been mostly down until late this afternoon. It will be off again tomorrow. They're fixing some wires on the fort.

Quite a memory trip with that video. And, of course, EVERYBODY LOOKS SO YOUNG!!!!!!

Ashley has asked me to post this image on the forum on his behalf so I thought
this would be the appropriate topic for that in remembrance of our good friend
David Mocniak still sadly missed by his Alamo friends.

I ordered the brochure via this ad, around 1963. Still have it. The photo of the entire compound in it was maddeningly small!

Yes! I studied that photo intensely for many moons before I ever saw more. Ned has often pointed out how Happy Shahan NEVER used the Alamo in his advertising, just "Alamo Village - Vacationland." The exception to that was his first postcard, a jumbo postcard, with the Alamo on top and the village on the bottom, both before they had been completed, aged or dressed. Not sure why that was, unless it was a spinoff of his tiff with Duke over what who owned. He once told me that, when they were watching explosion scene being filmed, Michael Wayne turned to him and said, "There goes your Alamo." Happy just smiled and said, "No. That was your Alamo. The town is mine."

The photo of the compound was all I really wanted...but it was so small I had to rely more on my memory of the movie, having seen it two years earlier, for details. :)

Yep! That's it, Gary. Interestingly, my San Antonio passion was so locked in already then, that I was as frustrated with the aerial view of the village as I was with the Alamo. Somewhere, I still have my hand-drawn map of the town and Alamo that I tried to do from those two photos.
