Fess Parker as Davy Crockett again!

'Davy Crockett'

King of the Wild Frontier
starred Fess Parker

Mini TV series about the life and times of the frontiersman, from his days as an Indian-fighter to the stand at the Alamo, led to Crockett-mania. Walt Disney subsequently claimed that Davy Crockett was the cause of the TV western stampede of the fifties. Co-starred Buddy Ebsen as George Russel.
