Cobbled together for theatrical release from three Disney TV shows that launched a national craze, Davy Crockett: King of the Wild Frontier presents a sanitized version of the American legend.

Crockett befriends Native Americans and serves his country on the frontier, in Congress, and at the Alamo, all while dispensing a folksy charm that inspired a hit song and thousands of kids to don coonskin caps. Starring Fess Parker and Buddy Ebsen. (93 mins., 35mm)
