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 »
When Crockett arrives in western Tennessee, shown on a map, the geography of the scenes still shows east Tennessee mountains. In reality, the Obion River area around Rutherford, where Crockett went, is actually rather flat, river-bottom county, with small hills in comparison to the eastern mountains. 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.

How can you say anything bad about a movie that gave you so much joy as a child and one that you can watch over and over again? The acting is a little bad and the script is a little stupid. Reference General Jackson "stoppered?" But even thought those things I feel are true, the joy is still there and you hate to see it end. Since no one knows how Crockett really died, not having him dead at the end but knowing it was only moments away was the best way they could have done it. The movie even had some historic truths which other movies about the Alamo lacked such as the attack before dawn. It seemed longer when I was a kid and I know they have cut some; yea even important scenes, which I wish they would restore to DVD or VHS.
