A great yarn!, 2 Oct. 2007
I had never seen this before but Fess Parker was a childhood hero of mine. Davy Crockett was a massive craze in the U.K. with young boys singing the famous theme tune and wearing Davy Crockett style, coonskin hats with long tails.
On the strength of this vague memory I decided to buy this, though I really wanted "Westward Ho The Wagons". I was not disappointed. I was thrilled. This is an outstanding adventure story which portrays important human values - couage, ingenuity and persistance.
I was slightly let down by the unexpected ending on first viewing but on further viewings came to appreciate the honour and nobility shown and now think it a supurb finish.
I recommend this to everyone without hesitation
