Was poking around on IMDB and found a link to this article re: "The Alamo".....the article basically says the film should NOT be saved, and even hints that these reasons are why MGM isn't interested in any restroration, because:
1- it's "lousy"
2- it's racist (because of the Jim Bowie character's devoted slave).
If either of these reasons is the actual "real" reason (other than cost) behind MGM's stance, then I am disgusted.....
writer blogger is an idiot. And he's quite up front with his belief in censoring things that aren't PC.
