Himself - Host: Down through the ages, man has been impelled, for one reason or another, to break away from the established order of things and push beyond the boundaries of civilization to find out what was on the other side of the mountain or the other side of the sea. The Norsemen set out for conquest, Columbus to prove a theory, Henry Hudson to find the Northwest Passage, and now our modern astronauts to find out not to what's on the other side of the mountain, but on the other side of the Moon.

A somewhat forgettable film.
20 November 2011 | by (Movieland) – See all my reviews

*Spoiler/plot- 1960, Long before the West was explored to it's fullest, the frontiersman Daniel Boone had a powerful need to expand westward and to see Kentucky Territory. This was an unexplored wilderness on the westward side of the Cumberland mountains and a secret Indian hunting grounds. A traveling peddler tells Mr. Boone of a hidden way to enter that area through a secret Indian trail called the 'Warrior's Path'. So Boone sets out with the peddler and friends to find the path and runs into a Shawnee hunting parting, but finally discovers the unexplored garden-like valley for the eventual westward movement of 18th century Eastern seaboard settlers.

*Special Stars- Dewey Martin, Richard Banke, Lala Powers, Anthony Caruso

*Theme- Some people have 'itchy feet' and become explorers.

*Based on- John Bakeless book, "Daniel Boone".

*Trivia/location/goofs- The first of four TV Disney episodes turned into video releases. Others include: And 'Chase the Buffalo', 'The Wilderness Road', 'The Promised Land'. The plot was plodding and un-eventful. Northridge California local resident and honorary mayor, Anthony Caruso makes another camera appearance as a Native American tribe leader. The episode includes Walt Disney's personal on camera introduction to this show with its history and character introductions.

*Emotion- This series seems to be trying to reproduce the success of the Davey Crockett Disney TV series, but it did not. The lead actor does not have the same acting or screen presence as Fess 'Davey Crockett' Parker did. Its a somewhat forgettable film.
