This is the Show that started one of the if not the biggest merchandising crazes in the country. Coon skin hats are still popular because of the Davy Crockett western show.
Grew up with Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone as portrayed by Fess Parker. Dad had an old Model 1868 Springfield rifle that looked like an old muzzle loader. All three of us kids had our pictures taken holding the rifle and in our coon skin caps. When we visited the Wisconsin Dells we had our pictures taken with a Native American dressed as a War Chief, I had a brown fringed shirt and my coon skin cap on when I had my picture taken. The “Brave/Chief” let me hold his tomahawk for the picture, a real one. Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone where two of my childhood heroes along with the “Duke.” Too bad there are no heroes like them for the kids to look up to today, what a shame.
Legends (and myths) from the life of famed American frontiersman Davey Crockett are depicted in this feature film edited from television episodes.
