DANIEL BOONE – The Sound of Wings – 1964

This is the seventh episode of the long running 1964-70 series about the life of American frontiersman and explorer, Daniel Boone. The lead is played by Fess Parker. Also in the mix are Albert Salmi, Ed Ames, Patricia Blair, Veronica Cartwright and Darby Hinton.

This one has the British again trying to set up a secret alliance with several of the Native tribes down the Kentucky area. Michael Rennie hires Parker to guide him on a mission to rescue 4 British officers being held for ransom. At least that is the story Rennie tells Mister Boone. (Fess Parker) Once they reach the tribal area Rennie wants, he gives Parker a crack on the head with the butt of his pistol. He then changes clothes with Parker and dumps him down a hillside. Rennie enters the Native village and claims to be the famous scout, Daniel Boone. This of course impresses the Natives as everyone has heard of the famous frontiersman and fighter.

Rennie's plan fails to fly however, as Parker survives the tumble down the hill and now shows at the village. When he claims to be Boone, the local chief, Frank De Kova has the two men fight it out. This idea ends up with Rennie getting a sound beating. Parker makes his own peace treaty with De Kova that shuts the British out if war should come. Rennie is lucky to get away with his life. Not so lucky is Rennie's contact with the local tribe, Michael Pate. A roasting at the stake is in his future.

Michael Pate was an Australian actor who spent 20 years in Hollywood playing all sorts of ethnic roles. The name might not mean much, but you will recognize his puss once you see him.
