Viva Max ★★½ 1969

A blundering modern-day Mexican general and his men recapture the Alamo, and an equally inept American force, headed by Winters, is sent to rout them out. Mostly works, with some very funny scenes. Ustinov is great. 93m/C VHS . Peter Ustinov, Jonathan Winters, John Astin, Pamela Tiffin, Keenan Wynn; D: Jerry Paris.
