      With his lanky frame, humble demeanor and ruggedly boyish face, actor Fess Parker was for many Americans the personification of pioneer myths, thanks to his famous film and television portrayals of Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone. Originally a dependable contract player for Warner Bros., Parker was discovered by Disney Studios and starred in the three-part miniseries, "Davy Crockett" (ABC, 1954-55), which became a huge hit with children. Two film roles as the rugged frontiersman followed in 1955-56 before playing the title role in the iconic series, "Daniel Boone" (NBC, 1964-1970), which forever cemented Parker's Hollywood legacy.
