Movie Poster of the Day: A popsicle tie-in for John Wayne’s The Alamo (1960)

Alamo popsicle ad (fred olen ray fb)John Wayne made his directorial debut with a nearly three-hour retelling of the Alamo siege co-starring the great Richard Widmark as Sam Bowie. It’s probably also the first movie to hock popsicles to kids despite an ending in which all the heroes are brutally killed.

The pic comes courtesy of the Facebook page of cult movie director Fred Olen Ray (The Tomb, Armed Response, Bad Girls From Mars), which is worth a “like” for connoisseurs of classic movie memorabilia and/or buxom ladies.
