Davy Crockett - school boys hero.



I know David Crockett is a real life American hero and would never try to disrespect the true history of this larger then life folk legend. But this Walt Disney production of David Crockett - King of the Wild Frontier; was one of my absolute favourites as a kid. The final scene when the Alamo fell and the heroic David Crockett is on the stairs fighting to the last, is splendid.

This is great American Retro film - the type that made everyone, anywhere, cheer for the good guys. It makes me want to get on my horse and ride off into the wilderness and have adventures - hoora!
