Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier is perhaps the most famous film in this series of Westerns from the mid-twentieth century. Based on folklore from a period where manifest destiny helped shape the face of the United States, Davy Crockett (Fess Parker) continues his exploration of the west. Along with his friend George Russel (Buddy Ebsen), the two go to battle to protect their interests in the Creek Indian War. Afterwards, Davy takes on a new enterprise. He aims to be elected as a member of the House of Representative, so he can voice his opinion in Congress. Finally, this motion picture culminates with the two back in battle for the last time, as they struggle to defend the Alamo in Texas against a vicious onslaught where there is no hope for victory. This film was engineered with footage from the popular television show of this era and edited for consistency.
