Really didn't like this film. Started watching only to turn it off immediately. Don't know what I was expecting really but it certainly was a turn off in watching first? 10 minutes of it. It just isn't a film I even feel like wasting my time watching further. Funny because I thought I watched it as a child but maybe not. It doesn't help it tries to portray Davy in good light by killing people?? This is remembered a European trying to take land already happily occupied by people... Truly amazing how a 'hero' is created... By killing men women children? Just to take their land. Yes a modern day hero. No not for me. I'd have given no stars but only need one to comment on how pathetic a film it was.

As a highlander growing up in Argyll Scotland a laddie was not even there,even then so far away from the stories of Davy Crockett and the Scottish emigree experience.The two local woods were known to everyone in the village as America and Canada,no doubt reflecting the enforced removals and for the few who could afford better passage the urge and the necessity to try for a better life there despite the hardships than suffer at home under what was to become known and later abhorred as the Highland Clearances which began after the failure of the 1745 Rising to put our rightful King,
King James back on the throne of Scotland,and incidentally for me England.
So armed already with true stirring tales I was more than ready to embrace the story of Davy Crockett when Walt Disney brought it to the big screen. Davy Crockett the film was gripping stuff for me and my father bowing to pressure made me a "coonskin cap" (an old fox stole formerly belonging to my mother was gladly given over and refashioned for the purpose)and I must have driven my beloved father mad by singing the Ballad of Davy Crockett constantly.Fifty years later I can still sing it.
My earliest memories are of my father during our walks in the hills teaching me how to identify, track and shoot animals such as red deer and fox and wild mink and rabbit and when attention lagged he could always get me interested again by telling me some story of Davy Crockett's life in the wilderness or one of the tall tales he would have known.This film may not be the highest in cinematic values but it certainly holds a high place in my own heart and surely that is the best judgement of all.

''Born on a Mountain Top in Tennessee
Greenest state in the land of the free
Raised in the Wood so's he knew every tree
Kil't him a B'ar when he was only three
Davy, Davy Crockett, King of The Wild Frontier''
.......
This is the movie that triggered a lifetime of interest in the story of
'Davy Crockett' and the battle of the Alamo, way back in '1955' (I
was a whole lot younger then)
'Disney' rekindled the legend of 'Davy Crockett' in this family-friendly
tale, which is often portrayed in a light-hearted manner as is the
'Disney' way.....History and fact perhaps tailored to accomodate the
it's targeted audience of the day.
the film starts during 'Davy Crockett's' (Fess Parker) Indian-fighting
days during which he was awarded the rank of colonel.
We follow his adventures along with partner 'George Russell' (Buddy
Epsen) which includes his 'Bear Hunting' 'Shooting contest' he then
set about trying to build a new family home, at which time he is given
the sad news that his wife had died.
He is persuaded to stand for congress, a position he held for one term.
Politics done he seeks a new challenge which takes him to Texas, where
he hears of a forthcoming skirmish with 'Mexican' dictator 'Santa Ana'
So he and his faithful friend head to 'San Antonio' joining 'Colonel James
Bowie' and 'Colonel William Travis' at the crumbling mission 'The Alamo'
Alamo trivia :-
'Davy' took the position of 'Special' Private' and was not officially one of
the 'Alamo's' commanders.
