Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Davy Crockett - King Of The Wild Frontier [DVD] (DVD)
I bought this dvd because I remembered how I loved watching it when I was very young and I particularly wanted to hear the title song again. Fond memories came flooding back at the beginning but the song became too repetitive after a while and even annoying to hear it over and over again by the end. Very tame by todays standards, I'd say it has a definite 1950's 'feel', but still an enjoyable romp of the old Hollywood Wild West.

Sure. 'Scout' , this is an essential piece of '50s culture and , for me , almost the whole point of watching it is to revisit that time and those 'attitudes', to think about the way we were; innocent and naive perhaps. For myself, one of the most thrilling moments of my life was when in about '55 my uncle came round to the house with a gigantic box which contained a Davy Crocket set, complete with hat and powder horn, which I mistakenly took to be a Robin Hood type bugle device for summoning up my 'men'. I was almost four years old and had Davy Crocket wallpaper on my bedroom walls, and I wore the hat for the next four years following.

Yes, Teddie, they were good days weren't they? I think we were lucky to have them, and to grow up in a more pleasant era of innocence than the youngsters are having to cope with now. I, too, had a Davy Crocket hat (even tho I was a gal, hehe!) and wore it proudly for a long time. Our fence at the bottom of the garden became my 'horse' (named Champion of course), complete with saddle and real stirrups, and I remember travelling great distances through all sorts of adventures in my make believe world. Argh, memories!

thanks JeanLouise, for those lovely images. Did you know that the average age of people that have a memory of making a den 'in the woods' is now 58yrs ? Heard of 'Nature Deficit Disorder' ? I hate to medicalise things but I believe there is something in it. To find out more see my website: millfields.wetpaint.org or search 'millfields and marshes wanderer. ... Hi-Ho Silver .....
