Movie Info

Cashing in on the surprise success of his 1954 Davy Crockett TV miniseries (first presented on the weekly anthology Disneyland ), Walt Disney assembled the three hour-long "Crockett" episodes into a 93 minute theatrical feature.

Audience Reviews for Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier


A very interesting look at Davy Crockett, although it's very inaccurate looking. The costumes look hilarious by today's standards, they look anything but authentic. The story was extremely jumbled around to make it theatrical. Overall, it's a fun movie, but not much more than that.

One of my all-time favorite movies growing up, and I just watched it again tonight and it was better than ever!

Disney's glorification of the American legend is extraordinary, and triggers patriotic feelings. Fess Parker will always be remembered for the role. (First full viewing - Summer 2009)
