This film made $1 million despite the fact that over 50% of the U.S. had already seen it on TV. This was least, in part, due to the fact that the reviews and promotional material, for this film, gave no indication that this was a compilation of 2 of the 3, one hour "Davy Crockett" TV episodes,"Davy Crockett Indian Fighter" (1954) and "Davy Crockett At The Alamo" (1955). The only difference, between the TV and movie version was that the theatrical version was in color. ABC TV, which first aired "Disneyland" (1954), did not broadcast in color, at that time. See more »
In his speech to the House of Representatives arguing against Jackson's expansion policies, Crockett uses the term "scalawags" twice. The term "scalawag" was not introduced until the 1840s, and was not widely used until after the Civil War, yet Crockett's speech was ostensibly between the years 1827 to 1835. See more »
Chief Red Stick:
Why you no kill me?
Maybe because of another law. We have trouble living up to it, but it ain't bad for red man or white man: thou shall not kill.

I first saw this film in 3 half hour segments over a 3 week period in 1956 and have seen it so often I can almost recite the dialogue. Fess Parker has been and always will be Davy Crockett, and even though George Russell was a ficticious character, he also did a super job. I reccommend this film highly, and its so much nicer to see at one time.
