This review is from: Davy Crockett - King Of The Wild Frontier [DVD] (DVD)
When the original film was showing at the Standard Cinema, Coventry, two young mothers took their combined broods of 9 nippers to watch it. Ahem! I don't remember seeing any of the film, but I do remember David, Daryl, Gerry and myself playing cowboys and indians underneath the seats and becoming rather filthy! I vowed to myself - after being severely admonished - that when I got the chance, I would sit down and watch it in its entirety. Ah, the best-laid plans of mice and men! Now I'm old, fat, grey and disabled, I sought out this copy on Amazon and duly sat down and watched it. Hardly surprisingly, it's a precis, as a film portrayal of Davy Crockett would have to be a 10-volume series. Most of what he achieved is there, but there's not enough detail! Ah well, when someone makes "Davy Crockett - The Series" I'll be an avid watcher. In the meantime, this will have to do!

This 'movie' was actually compiled from the episodes of a television series, cut down to make something for a cinema release version. This was especially popular in places like Britain where the TV show was not shown.
