Writer  Lon Tinkle (book), Clyde Ware, Norman Morrill

The Alamo: 13 Days to Glory (1987) is a made-for-TV film about the 1836 Battle of the Alamo written and directed by Burt Kennedy, starring James Arness as James Bowie, Brian Keith as Davy Crockett, Alec Baldwin as William Barrett Travis, Raul Julia as Antonio López de Santa Anna, and featuring a single scene cameo by Lorne Greene as Sam Houston. Unlike most other films about the Alamo — the most prominent other exception being the 1955 film The Last Command (which was released during the cultural frenzy created by Walt Disney's Davy Crockett television miniseries) — it focuses on Bowie as the main character rather than Crockett.

The production was shot at Alamo Village, the Alamo replica built by John Wayne for his lavish 1960 film The Alamo.

Much of the footage of the final battle scene was recycled from earlier films.
