Production is underway in Texas for a new movie that may explode long-standing myths surrounding the 1836 siege of the Alamo. The film aims to set history straight by portraying the faults of such Alamo heroes as David Crockett and telling the story in part through the eyes of Mexican soldiers. NPR's John Burnett reports.
