Southwestern Historical Quarterly
Hellcats ($12, paper), eight tales of adventure, crime, courage, and mys-
tery from the early days of the Texas frontier. These historical portraits,
presented in laid-back western style, tell the true stories behind an octet
of Lone Star legends-some well known, others more obscure. How
many people, for example, know that two people survived at the
Alamo-a woman and her young daughter, or that Gunsmoke's Miss Kitty
was based on a real-life lady gambler? This raucous ride through Texas
history is ideal for western history buffs, students of women's history,
and, of course, Texans-wherever they may reside. Call Mountain Press

More than 250 movies have been filmed in San Antonio since the first
movie studio in Texas opened in the city in 1 910. They range from silent
flickers to major Hollywood productions, offbeat independent films, low-
budget horror films, and everything in between. Some of the biggest
movie stars in the world have come to town. Some of history's most hon-
ored and loved films have been made in San Antonio, including the win-
ner of the first Academy Award for Best Picture. In Texas Hollywood:
Filmmaking in San Antonio Since rgzo, published by Maverick Publishing
Company, film historian Frank Thompson takes the first comprehensive
look at this unusual heritage and at the perceptive filmmakers who still
find that San Antonio can be virtually anything they want it to be, from
Spanish outpost to Civil War-era locale to gritty urban center.
