Brown's original painting for the poster of The Alamo hung for many years at the actual Alamo in San Antonio, Texas.
He suffered a severe stroke in 1976 that left his left side paralyzed and ended his commercial work. Brown and his family moved to Dawes County, Nebraska; with his wife's help, Brown continued to paint landscapes until his death in 1991.
In 1994, Mel Bucklin's documentary about Reynold Brown entitled The Man Who Drew Bug-Eyed Monsters was broadcast on U.S. public television. A book reproducing many of Brown's artworks, Reynold Brown: A Life in Pictures, was published in 2009.
