In the 1953 western film, “The Man from the Alamo” Glenn Ford stars as John Stroud. In the movie, Stroud is chosen to leave the fort in order to warn and protect his family and others of the approaching army led by Santa Anna. When the devastation at the Alamo incurs, the Texan is labeled a coward by all.
Determined to avenge his family and restore his honor, Stroud goes on a journey to protect Texas families as they run from a Santa Anna sympathizer. In the end, Stroud manages to seize his justice and honor while also delivering the families to safety. This Texas hero teaches us that it’s never too late to re-write your story and protect it for generations to come.
